Blogathon 2009 – We Made it

Comments 7 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Post #49 of #49 – Over the next 24 hours I will be raising funds for the Union Gospel Mission during Blogathon 2009 by writing a blog post every 30 minutes. Please consider donating to my cause to keep my going until 6am PT July 26th.

We made it. After 24 hours of blogging readers have donated and pledged over $3,000 to the Union Gospel Mission. The support in all forms has been overwhelming and I cannot say it often enough but I have the best readers in the world.

There has been a group of bloggers here at the on-site event who have worked hard for their causes as well. Each and every one has put in an amazing amount of effort into their individual campaigns.

I’ll be heading home soon with John and getting some sleep so the site won’t be updated for the next day or so, understandably. I will keep the donation page live until Tuesday at which time I’ll draw the winner of the Granville Island Brewing fireworks boat cruise experience as well as the $25 Kingston gift certificate donated by John Biehler.

If you would like to re-live my 24 hours, you can read all of my Blogathon 2009 posts here. Thanks again everyone, and goodnight (good morning) from Gastown.

    Hi, Miss 604. I was just searching for some pictures of last night’s lightning storm/fireworks display and ran across your blog. This is such a great idea. I’ll definitely be back later to read the whole thing.

    I don’t know if I could stay awake that long, let alone keep writing the whole time. Amazing work, Rebecca! We really, really, really appreciate it.

    Great job Rebecca! That is a LOT raised for UGM! Congratulations. You’re really started a great tradition for the Vancouver blogging scene.
