A number of commenters on a previous post raised the good idea of a dedicated fire disaster donations appeal thread. As I reminded folks on that thread, I posted a link on Tuesday to John Quiggin’s appeal.
His thread is here.
I’d suggest that it’s probably neater if we join forces and any LP folk make pledges over at Quiggin’s – which was the intention behind my original post. Perhaps it got lost in the flood of posts. Quiggin has already raised $7300 and I think if those LPers who wish to join in, it becomes a joint blogospheric effort. So please leave comments recording your donation and encouragement to others there.
Update: I’ve fixed the link in the post to John Quiggin’s thread, and I’m pleased to report that he’s agreed to the suggestion of a joint appeal with LP – the challenge is to get up to at least $10000 by the end of the weekend!
To co-ordinate a joint appeal with Larvatus Prodeo, I’m keeping the appeal open for the weekend. With LP readers joining those here, I’m confident that we can raise at least $10 000.
