Would you like to use your blog to raise money for an organization, campaign or issue that is important to you?
You can learn some blog fundraising tips if you come to the BlogHer Conference in Chicago where I'll be moderating a panel on Friday, July 27th from 2:45-4:00 pm called, Getting It On(line) for a Cause: Part 1 - Raising Money.
The panelists will include my co-editor of the Social Change, Nonprofits and NGO section of BlogHer, Beth Kanter, who will be talking about how she raised over $800 for the Sharing Foundation using a ChipIn widget and her blog; Pim Techamuanvivit of Chez Pim, who raised over $50,000 in 11 days for the UN Food Programme with her annual Menu for Hope campaign; and VITA, an Australian blogger who helps arts organizations raise money and sell tickets.
After our panel will be a complementary session: Getting it On(line) for a Cause : Part 2 - Raising Consciousness moderated by Rochelle Robinson. Presenters will include Green L.A. Girl (aka Siel), who will talk about the Starbucks Challenge, and Cooper Munroe and Emily McKhann, who will talk about BlogHer's new community activism initiative: BlogHers Act.
The BlogHersAct survey is live until July 8th if you want to vote on what issue the members of BlogHer should put their energy towards this year.
If you go to the Conference, come say hi!
