Blogathon 2006

If you are the very few of my loyal followers since 2004 you might remember my blogathon stint I did last year. For the sake of those who have very short term memory or my new goddess-cult follower, I will tell you anyway. I participated in a blogathon to raise money for ACEH TSUNAMI FUND last year HERE.

And as if the last year's catastrophic yet hilarious blogathoning event was not enough, I am going to do it again this year. My friends and I. Kudos to Primary Basic for initiating this (again). Thus giving me the opportunity to join.

So what is blogathon, you may ask. Alaa I heard you ask just now. Dalam hati.

The is a charity marathon event where people from around the world update their blogs at least once every half an hour for 24 hours straight. During those 24 hours they raise awareness of their chosen charity and aim to raise funds and collect pledges for it.

Dojnf the blogathon means we will blog and blog and blog just like walkathon where they would walk and walk and walk. The condition is we will blog for 24 hours with one entry for every half an hour. So it is basically non stop typing for most of us.

Why would I even want to do this? The main idea is to raise fund. Yes! Yes! Mintak derma. You know some people raise fund by running backwards for 100 miles non stop, or live in a glass cage with venomous snakes or kiss their partner non stop for 24 hours or sell cakes. All in the name of charity.

So I blog. It is not so easy actually. I usually put up an entry occasionally. And to come up with entries after entries for every half an hour is actually taking up all the possible entries for many month's entry ration. But do I must!

Why? Why?

We are hoping to raise fund for a charity group called Aman Palestine.. Aman Palestin is a non government organization, that surfaced late 2004. It was registered earlier this year in January as a foundation to help the people of Palestine, in a more collective, planned, continuous and effective way. It's newly relocated office, is in Bangi, Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia. Since 2005, more than RM500 000 have been donated to the people of Palestine, via Aman Palestin.

The list of Charity and Humanitarian Mission of Aman Palestin at the palestine concentration camp in Lubnan, Syria, and Jordan are as follows;

1. Sponsoring of Palestinian orphans
2. Fending for Single Mothers
3. Education fund
4. Projek Pusat Jahitan (Sewing Center?)
5. Building of orphanages for the palestinian children
6. Waqf Palestine Project
7. Hospital Project
8. Medicinal supplies
9. Qurban Aidil Adha
10. School supplies
11. Ramadhan activities
12. Building a Qur'an Learning center
13. School for the children
14. Waqf transportation for Aman Palestin
15. Winter clothing project
16. Waqf building for Aman Palestin

So what is the deal? Again I can hear you asking.

On the 29th of July, 9pm, my friends and I shall start blogging continuously for the next 24 hours, with one entry each 30 minutes. For this, we are rallying that sponsors step up and pledge an amount that they would like to give to the said charity. By sponsors here I mean you and you. Individual or company. Anyone.

Oh please have a heart dear reader. Sponsor me. Help me make a difference.

You may honour your pledges, by banking into these account after we complete the blogathon
