So before I go any further on this thing I just want to mention what we’re doing here...

First, Blogathon happens once a year. Find it’s history here.
And this is how they explain what a blogathon is... "Remember when you were in school and you would bowl for charity? And for every pin you knocked down you got, say, ten cents? Or run for a dollar a mile? During the Blogathon, people update their websites every 30 minutes for 24 hours straight. For this, they collect sponsorships. Pledges can be a flat donation, or a certain amount for every hour the blogger manages to stay awake."

The charity we have selected to receive all donations collected, is the American Cancer Society (big surprise for anyone who may have followed this blog for any length of time). And specifically, the Relay For Life from our little town which still has it's books open for this year through the end of August.

Now, should you want to become a part of this donation/sponsorship process, all you have to do is click on the sheep. If you don't want to go through Blogathon to do the sponsoring, you can email us, or send a comment and let us know that. We can do it for you this year for the first time and do a sponsorship by proxy. Or if you prefer, you can go directly to the Relay link and just donate there and bypass the Blogathon link altogether. We don't have a problem with that. We simply want to get more money into the ACS bucket.

Throughout the course of the 24-hours, we'll also be sharing some links to various people we've met along the way. Brain Tumor warriors like Keith, and other cancer warriors. These are people who are fighting the battle now and you may see links to fund raising efforts they have currently going on. If you would prefer to donate to them directly, we don't have a problem with that either. Because this is about them.

It has always been about them.
