So you’ve checked out the Blog Action Day site, read up on water and maybe even registered your tumblr blog to participate. But now, you want to do more — but what? Glad you asked! Here are three things you can do right now to get more involved in Blog Action Day 2010:
- Embed an action widget: Together with US Fund for UNICEF, we’re helping to build a movement of people across the world calling on UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon to accelerate the UN’s work to supply clean, safe drinking water to the world’s poorest populations. You can help this movement by grabbing our interactive action widget and embedding it on your blog, empowering your readers to join the cause.
- Raise funds for water: We’ve partnered with leading organizations to enable you to raise money to provide clean drinking water to those in need. Among these is charity: water, which allows you to create a fundraising page to raise money to build wells in Africa. You can also directly donate through Water.org, an organization co-founded by Matt Damon. Just $25 provides clean water for a lifetime for one person.
- Spread the Word: We need your help to spread the word about Blog Action Day 2010 across the web. Take a moment to tell your friends to sign up via email, Facebook and Twitter. The more voices we have involved in the conversation, the greater our collective impact.
Blog Action Day is shaping up to be a really exciting collection of voices from across the web and we hope that many more people can join us. Hope you’ll take a second to join the global conversation about water!
