Comment For Charity: Last Hope Cat Kingdom

I’ve been trying to come up with a way to do more good with my blog and think it might be fun to use it to raise money for charity by donating $1 per comment received. I can’t take complete credit for this idea because it was inspired by a blog I came across who did this for one particular post to donate to food. Unfortunately, I don’t remember which blog it was so if it was yours, let me know so I can give you some link love here.

Certain charities we donate to regularly; however, there are more that we just give to sporadically and sometimes a special need arises. Those are the ones which we will pick from to use for our “Comments for Charity” campaign on a 3-month trial basis. If it works out well, we'll continue it for the whole year.  I believe this will also help us be extravagantly generous. We will donate $1 for every legitimate comment we get on our blogs during the month of January to Last Hope Cat Kingdom to help rebuild the cat shelter that burned down that we heard about from Sparkle. I hope this will encourage more of our readers to comment instead of just lurk as well as help support charities that are close to our hearts.

So, why not help by commenting on this post? What do you think of this idea? Do you have a good charity you would like to recommend? Not saying we will use it, but we are open to suggestions.  Please visit our other blogs too!  (My Funny Dad, Harry and Grab A Book From Our Stack)

OH, this is a great idea...and so easy, especially for me . I love cats, I always appreciate people who work hard to take care of them...and any animals for that matter, to keep them safe and fed etc!!! Thanks for posting about this!!! Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

What a great idea! I had a commenthon for my birthday last year and I've seen others who do them too. I hope you get lots of comments this month to help such a worthy charity!

It looks like we'll be donating quite a bit--already at $127 and we're only halfway through the month!
