Blogathon 2006


Note: This post has been dated July 29th to keep it at the top of the page. Look beneath this blog for new posts.

Hi everyone!

My name is Christy Humason. On July 29, 2006 I will be participating in Sixth Annual International Blogathon to raise money for Matthew 25: Ministries. Blogathon 2006 participants pledge to update their blog every 30 minutes for a period of 24 hours while collecting donations through sponsorships for a charity of their choice.

My charity, Matthew 25: Ministries is a Cincinnati-based "international humanitarian relief organization helping the poorest of the poor locally, regionally, nationally and internationally regardless of race, creed or political persuasion. By rescuing and reusing products from major corporations, manufacturers and individuals, Matthew 25: Ministries provides basic necessities, skill development and disaster relief across the US and worldwide." Matthew 25: Ministries seeks to fulfill Jesus' words in Matthew 25:34-40 by providing food, clean water, clothes, shelter, medical care, and humanitarian supplies to those in need.

To raise money, I am seeking sponsors who would be willing to donate either an hourly amount (for each hour I blog, totalling 24 hours) or a lump sum toward this cause. Any amount you can contribute would be greatly appreciated by me, Matthew 25: Ministries, and those that M25M goes on to help. To sponsor me or learn more about Blogathon sponsorship, please click here or on one of the icons above and below this post.


Thank you in advance for your generosity and I hope to see you stop by my blog on July 29th!

Current Sponsorships: $801.78
Goal: $500 $750 $1000

Thank you so much for your donations and words of encouragement! We have reached my second goal! Can we make it to $1000 by the time the donations close on Monday?

Hi Christy, this is Mallory of glad sad mad (my blog). Thank you for the comments you left me!
Luz, the girl I sponsor, is in project 101. What project is your girl in? When I was in Nicaragua I got to visit projects 165, 179, 159, and 129.
And yes, AU is Anderson University :) I just graduated from there this past May. It's a great school. Although I am sure Asbury will be great as well!
I sponsored you for $5 as well - I TOTALLY understand the poor student thing, haha, although now I'm just poor and not a student anymore ;) I'll be back during the blogathon tomorrow!

Hey, Jono from the Blogathon forums here, just thought I'd drop in and say hello and good luck for the 'thon... you never know, I might even end up being your monitor! ;)

Take care!

Jono
