The first annual “Blogging for Blood Cancer” event will take place from August 11-18, 2008. This first time event will bring bloggers from across the United States together to raise awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and its mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease, and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
The event is being hosted by Goodies for Mom in conjunction with the Friends of Heroes (FOH) National Light The Night Team. They are asking bloggers to post on your blogs throughout the event about the importance of the LLS mission, share your personal stories of those you have come to know who have been affected by blood cancer, or share some of the stories you read here and on the FOH site during the week that have touched your hearts.
All bloggers participating will have the opportunity to be entered to win prizes donated by event sponsors by leaving a Mr. Linky link on the Goodies for Mom post for the event. The event post will go up there on August 11, 2008 at 8:00 am. Even if you do not have a blog, visitors to the Goodies for Mom and Friends of Heroes blogs during the week will have opportunities to win as you learn more about the importance of LLS’s research and patient services in the fight against blood cancer.
I'm donating a fused glass pendant for this event. I've got a couple of kiln loads of glass ready to fire, and should have a photo of the prize posted in the next few days.
