SpReAd The Love INTO THE STORM Blogger Challenge: Poll Result
A couple of weeks ago Obscura and I told you about our fourth SpReAd The Love challenge in honor of Richard Armitage's just-opened movie Into The Storm. This time we're asking you to tell us about a disaster relief agency that's touched your life -- one that you've donated to or worked for or that offered your community help in a time of need. If you have a blog of your own, please post about it or, if you don't, let one of us know and we'll host it for you. Each post counts as a kindness for this challenge, which runs from today August 7 till August 22, in addition to all of the kindnesses we've collected since the Bouquets of Goodwill speed round in July. We have another Anonymous Co-Conspirator who will donate $1 for each kindness to a charity supported by Richard Armitage via Just Giving and a matching donation to an international disaster relief agency as voted by you. At the close of the poll last night there was a tie between Doctors Without Borders and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and that means that the $200 max will be split three ways. Thanks to all of the donors we've had in the last eight months, those who've offered monetary donations to Richard Armitage's charities and those whose kindnesses we've logged along the way. The first post in this challenge is up at Me+Richard where Servetus talks about a disaster in her community one year ago today.
