Blogathon Vancouver 2008: The Home Stretch

Comments 4 by Rebecca Bollwitt

For the last few weeks I have been trying to organize a way for Vancouver bloggers to stay up late and raise money for the charity of their choice. Using the Blogathon model, with the lack of their technology, we pieced together this effort and I think that everyone involved has done an amazing job. Here’s a quick recap of the participants and their cause.

    Hey there,

    This is Keela Keeping, I work in PR at UGM. Rebecca, we’re really grateful for all you’ve done and so surprised and astounded at what you have arranged with Matthew Good. Can you drop me a line or give me a call with your contact info? I’ve let a few news sources know about this, and if they call, I’m still in the dark about some of the details and want them to be able to connect with you.

    I’m at [email protected] or (604) 215-5445 ext. 378.

    (Kevan’s away, and he has your info)
