As part of the BBA, I am asked to help spread the word on various events throughout the year. I received an email from Mike Clair about his Blogathon, which benefits Doctors Without Borders.
Here is the message from Mike:
I just wanted to send an email out to everyone reminding you all of the charity blogathon I'm hosting over at Old Time Family Baseball to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. Here's a post that outlines the whole event, but the general gist is that starting on Saturday morning at 8 am I will be posting every 30 min for 24 hours on Saturday and over 20 baseball writers have contributed guest posts for Sunday. A number of BBA blogs have contributed, as well as a variety of well-known baseball writers including Craig Calcaterra and Jeff Sullivan among others. Here is the link where donations are being accepted:http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/OTFB. Every donation also enters people into a raffle for a number of prizes including baseball cards, books, movies, and more.
I would really appreciate it if you guys would help publicize the event and if you enjoyed the posts, passed them along on your blogs or to friends and family. Doctors Without Borders is a really amazing organization and they deserve all the support they can get.
If you feel so compelled, please visit his site and make a donation to DwB, plus get registered for cool prizes!
