BlogFrog and The Children's Hospital

I love it when I get to do marketing that not only benefits our blogging members, but gives back to a worthy cause, too.


This month, BlogFrog is hosting the "Give the gift of community" challenge. For every BlogFrog community that adds 20 new participants between now and the end of the year, BlogFrog will donate $10 to The Children's Hospital, one of the top 10 hospitals serving children and teens.

Here's how to participate:

  1. Install a BlogFrog community on your site (if you already have one, you are one step ahead!). Just visit BlogFrog to get instructions on how to install a community (takes 5 minutes).
  2. Make sure the widget is high enough to be easily seen by your visitors.
  3. Announce your community to your readers in a post and tell them about the "Give the Gift of Community" challenge. For every community that adds 20 new participants (someone who has not participated in your community before and starts a discussion or replies to one) before the end of the year, BlogFrog will donate $10 to The Children's Hospital (up to $400)!
  4. Spread the word about your new community by sharing discussions on Twitter and include the #blogfrog hashtag so other BlogFrog members can join and re-tweet.
  5. Every community that adds at least 20 new participants during the campaign will be promoted in our next newsletter and on our website as "Blogs that gave the gift of Community".
BlogFrog keeps track of new participants and will be posting about the fund-raising progress in its member's community, on Twitter, and Facebook.

Thanks everyone!

Hi Holly - I'm very excited about this. My friend's daughter has been under treatment at Children's Hospital for about the last two years so I'm familiar with their work. Great choice of organization to support.

I'll be writing my post this weekend ...

PS. My widget isn't showing forum activity so I'm thinking I need to reinstall it???

Thank you so much for coming by community and commenting! I am getting so close to the challenge goal!

The challenge also inspired me to do some giving of my own-- so I'm donating $1 for every new blog or BlogFrog follower between now and Christmas to Ronald McDonald House. I've already pledged $63!
