Roundup on liberal network efforts
Friday, September 30th, 2005
The total is in. Blogads donated by the Advertise Liberally network raised $181,548.73 for the Red Cross’s Katrina relief efforts. Hats off to Kari Chisholm who ground out the technical details to make it happen and Chris Bowers who mobilized the network to run the ads. Social-network geeks can add this effort to the chapter on speed of light grassroots mobilization. I should also mention that John Hawkins pulled his conservative network into donating ads for MercyCorp; unfortunately, no tally was kept for total contributions and the pitch did not specifically address conservatives.
