One of the advantages of blogging is the voice it gives us on a worldwide scale. Even if you have only a few readers your words can be spread from blog to blog. We often use this viral characteristic to promote our blogs, and to pass on memes and awards. What really fires me up is the ability to spread the word about good causes, helping those who are also trying to spread the word and those who are putting in time and effort for their causes.
My friend, Renny, tells us about the co-founder of LinkedInNorway, Morten W . Morten ,who is trying to raise money for CARE Norway, recently walked a lap of the Oslo City Hall for every 90 Norwegian Krona (NOK) that had been donated; accompanied by Renny. His next challenge will be when he reaches 20,000 NOK and walks 40 laps which will take approximately 6 hours.
Care Norway “places special focus on working alongside poor women because, equipped with the proper resources, women have the power to help entire families and communities escape poverty.”
