Blogathon: 24 Hours of Blogging for "Food Runners"

Please help me help Food Runners relay food to the needy:

2006 blogathon 24 hours of blogging to raise money for food runners in san francisco on july 29th 2006
I hereby solemnly promise to do everything in my power to blog for a full 24 hours without stopping* as part of the 2006 Blogathon on July 29th. In return I am asking my wonderful readers to please help me to help Food Runners, a San Francisco Charity that collects surplus perishable food from restaurants and delivers it to the people who need it the most, by sponsoring my marathon blogging effort. I am not quite sure yet what shape the 24 hours of blogging will take, but I promise to try and make the adventure as interesting as I can. Your support is much appreciated and I hope you will join me on July 29th.

Thank you

    I'm in Sam! This is a great idea and a great cause. Organizations that help alleviate hunger are my favorite charities. There's one in St. Louis that I contribute to annually. It's called Food Outreach and they provide nutritional support to people w/ AIDS.

    Good luck w/ your effort!

    Oh, Sam! You're Blogathonning! You can count on my support -- stay tuned for further updates on your member page -- and I will definitely be there to wave and cheer you on and send you comments of increasing incoherence as the night wears on.

    We should really get some heavy-duty chocolate to keep us awake. :)
