My wife alerted me to yet another way to help spread the word about people in the blogosphere doing things to help out with Haiti earthquake relief. Through Danielle LaPorte at White Hot Truth.com she found out about the Help Haiti Blog Challenge put together by Kelly Diels.

Kelly says:

You’ve got something to offer: whether it is an e-book, a course, a consultation, a mowed lawn, knitted booties, a tweet or an e-mailed plea to your closest friends. You have something to contribute…offer a trade: your thing for cash, to donate to charity doing relief work in Haiti. (The Red Cross, Doctors without Borders, and Partners in Health are all great candidates for your donations.) The ability to contribute is power and power is a gift. That’s a gift that you have and one you can share. Please do.

I have already blogged about my friend David’s first-hand connection to this tragedy, about the concerts were organizing in Seattle to raise funds, and about donating 100% of my CD and download sales to Haiti relief through next week, but I’m so glad to be joining forces with other bloggers to hopefully make an even bigger impact. If we each find something that we can give away for donations we can raise a considerable amount of money.

So if you’re reading this and you want to help out by donating, visit my music page and purchase one or more of my CD’s. You can name your own price, and I encourage you to be generous. Again, I will donate 100% of my sales to the relief effort. No administrative fees, no middle-man, no barriers.

And if you’re a blogger with something to offer, please visit Kelly’s blog and sign up for the challenge. We can make a difference, together!

We just started to donate 1$ from each purchase to Haiti.
Thanks to all good people.
