Stormi and Roger came by today personally from Kentucky and picked up all the donations for the camp.
I was overwhelmed with how nice they were and how truly grateful they were for each and every donation. You don’t realize how every product makes a difference in some way. They told us from gift baskets to the families and children, auctions to raise money, and even the facility, every bit counts. With tough economic times donations are down all around for charities, but it doesn’t have to be for review and giveaway bloggers.
EVERY TIME you get pitched for a product, please ask them to donate ONE EXTRA PRODUCT on behalf of Bloggers Give to:
The Center for Courageous Kids
On Behalf of Bloggers Give
1501 Burnley Road
Scottsville, KY 42164
If you are a PR rep that donates a client product, let us know and we will add your press release to the Bloggers Give website! There is nothing too small or too large when your talking about 4000 families and a camp that caters to children with fatal or life altering medical issues.
If this sounds like a plea, it is. We get products every day from PR, so please, please use your contacts to do something that takes one second. Most PR reps are more than happy to donate an extra product if you take the time to ask, so please ask.
It took us 6 months to raise approximately $12,000 in product donations (its actually more around $13,000, but we didn’t update the camp in time). We have 6 more months left in the year. Surely we can match those donations with another $13,000 but we cannot do it without you taking a few moments with your reps and product based businesses online.

Once you have a donation, you can go right to the Bloggers Give site and write up a post and list your blog for free as a donating blogger and product!
All you do is submit and we approve, very simple.
Where hoards of Media are trying to tear mommy blogging, reviews, and giveaways down, we can all do something worth talking about POSITIVELY.
This is a big deal. It really is. Together the Blogosphere and reps made a difference for someone in the world that will ultimately be touched by your kindness. This is not something I DID. This is something EVERYONE did that donated.
Lets please keep the tradition alive.
P.S. please blog about this, tweet, talk, stumble…whatever you can!
