The Fundraisers.com Blog Network!

Annie Van BebberIt was 34 years ago when my Dad passed away in eight short weeks from Leukemia. At that time, I felt the need to do something to rid myself of the pain and to help find a cure so others would not suffer. So I called all my friends and produced my first fundraising event... a Broomball Hockey Game. At the time I was in radio so I was able to draw top DJ's, support from the record labels and a live broadcast on a local radio station. I got into the "Giving Back" spirit to try and make a difference and have been fundraising ever since.

The internet has provided us with a new way to share our feelings and everyday experiences... the blog. It's an unusual name, isn't it? It's short for "Web Log", and people all over the world are contributing their thoughts and ideas to the "blogosphere". I wanted to create a blog where people who are dedicated to working for the common good can exchange ideas and support, and report on what their organizations are doing. Also, I felt it was important to have a place for people to talk about their own feelings. But as I thought about all of the things that people could write about, I realized one blog just wouldn't cover everything. I'm proud to introduce the Fundraisers.com Blog Network!

Our blogging project begins with seven blogs, each designed to provide insight into a different aspect of Giving and Fundraising. If you have an idea for a blog that you would like us to start, let us know. We will feature it here and showcase it on our website at www.fundraisers.com.

These blogs are available to you and your fellow volunteers and fundraisers to use to get the word out about your cause. Simply click on the email link to the right for the appropriate blog to submit your article for consideration. As the weeks go by, you'll be able to read the announcements and reports from others who feel strongly about their causes, and you can become part of the worldwide Community of Giving.

There are many people who are dedicated to contributing what they can to make the world a better place. I hope these blogs will provide a line of communication to enable us to all accomplish great things for our causes. Send us a blog entry and let us all know what you are up to!

All my Best,
Founder, Fundraisers.com
