Blogust '13

No, that's not my pun. I'm passing along this title from a venture by the United Nations Foundation. Every day of August, you can check out a blog that is participating in this effort and if you make a comment, Walgreens will donate a vaccination for a child--up to 50,000 of them. In the words of the campaign:

"Funds will go directly to support measles and polio vaccination efforts, by UNICEF and WHO, in the countries where they are needed the most."

Not a bad deal, right? You'll get to read thirty-one blogs you probably don't know about, and maybe even find a couple that you stick with. Then you get to shoot your mouth off, and bingo! A child gets a vaccine that may save it's life.

Blogust '12 garnered 11,000 comments. Let's not let any of these 50,000 chances go to waste. 

Here's the link to the website.
