But I have prizes

Looks like Blogathon.org will not be hosting pledges this year. Without any explanation they are closed until next year.

Here's the problem, I have already contacted my charity telling them I will be raising money for them. I also managed to get some really great prizes to raffle off.

If I decide to go ahead and hold my own private Blogathon, I will have no where for people to pledge. But I got prizes.


What do you guys think? You want me to go ahead with the fundraiser?

Well that was kind of sucky of Blogathon - after getting people to sign up and stuff - but I am sure they have a good reason for it.

I think it is an excellent idea Phelan and will happily participate for you if you like. Your charity is certainly a great one.

I'm sure they have their reasons, but this puts a lot of us out. some of us have been working for months to put our 24 hour fundraiser together.

Well, I was all ready too! One of my friends wanted to do it with me, so I helped her start a blog and everything. Would you still do it on the 31st? A simple way to do the donations is to just have people donate directly to the charity during the event, that way there are no instructions, and no signing up to pledge. I'm also thinking of doing my own thing, but on a different day.

See if the charity has a way folks can pay-pal them, or just end each post with a direct link to the "donate" page.

Good luck!
