So last week I was contacted by my great blog friend Bekah about something amazing that is coming soon! I encourage all of you to be a part of this and think of being a “leader” for your state. I feel this is an amazing program that we can all use to make a difference in our communities. So I will at this point let Bekah take it away!
I’ve been dreaming big lately- about how nice it would be to see the blogging community in the community. So, I’m thrilled to present this nationwide blog meet up with a purpose: #givethanksgiveback. Here’s how it works:
I’m looking for (at least) one blogger per state to step up as a leader – your job will be to plan a charitable blog meet up for the month of November – run a canned food drive, serve lunch at a soup kitchen, serve others wherever you feel passionate about giving back! Each leader will display a master post in October linking to each state’s event info. All throughout the month, bloggers can access the information and sign up for November’s event. All are welcome to link up about their experiences after their event.
Here is the timeline:
Sept 8-13 – Sign ups for state leaders.
Oct 3 – Leaders must have November event scheduled and turned in for the master listing.
Oct 6 – All leaders post master listing to their blogs and post about their specific event between now and 10/10.
November – Meet up and give back by Thanksgiving! Blog about it and link up. Link up will be live 11/1-12/7.
I hope you’re as excited as I am! Come back Monday if you’re ready to take charge. Or, come back on 10/6 to find an event near you so you can also #givethanksgiveback!
