My blog is strictly about photography… so for this post I wrote the above and, well, took a photo of it! I was looking for a trusted website today to send a donation for Haiti. I was planning to pay around $50, then I thought it would be more fun to involve you. Yes you!
Until 12pm Kuwait time on Friday, for every comment I get from a unique visitor to this post, I will add a dollar to my original donation. I post on Facebook and Twitter, so I will be counting the comments, replies and retweets – as well as those below. I’m optimistic, but I apologise (a little) for also being realistic. I will pay a maximum of $200 to WFP. If you know of a better organisation, please let me know.
Thank you for YOUR HELP!
UPDATE i: A very generous offer by intlxpatr and her husband: They will match (y)our donation! Talk has become even less cheap! Your comment is now effectively worth $2. Thank you intlxpatr🙂
UPDATE ii: We have, together, donated $250 to the World Food Program, specifically for their ‘Help Haiti’ appeal. I hope this small contribution helps their great effort. The enthusiasm shown by many of you to help is inspiring. I thank you all for your time and input. Have a great Friday/weekend and I wish you all the best.
UPDATE iii: Intlxpatr and Marzouq have matched our $250 donation, and Polar Panda has donated $249 Canadian. These additions, together with the matched donations of the Canadian government, and Polar Panda’s employer, brings the total to an impressive $1,450. Thank you so much!
