Delurk for Haiti.

It's here! It's Delurker Day! It's the time of year where we bloggers beg harass threaten invite all of you, our dear readers to come out and say "hi!".

Whether you're new to this blog (welcome!), are a die-hard commenting fan, or are a die-hard fan but have always been too shy to say anything, please make your presence known!

You can let me know what you have planned for today, tell me which Life Candy post is your favourite, or just say "Yo!". It doesn't matter -- just do it!

And this year, to add some extra warm-fuzzies and do-goodness to Delurker Day, for every comment left on this post, I will donate $1 to relief efforts for the earthquake victims in Haiti.

Updated: Where will I be donating the money?
I will be giving the money to SOS Children's Village's Haiti Emergency Appeal. My family and I sponsor an SOS Children's Village in Cape Verde near Africa, and we are impressed with their efforts to help families and children worldwide. Any donation given to SOS Children's Village will be matched dollar for dollar by the Canadian Federal Government. So, that's where the money's going!

Want to really celebrate Delurker Day?! Then you totally need to visit the truly awesome blogs of the fabulous Rougie, AndreAnna, and Cass who are also donating to Haiti.

So, PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!! Tweet, comment, and blog! Tell everyone what we're doing for Delurker Day, and send them over. Let's do what we can to help.

Thanks to my girl Rougie at Chez Rougie for the fabulous 'Delurk for Haiti' idea, to Chris at Rude Cactus for the Delurker Day heads up, and to Aimee at Greeblemonkey for the lovely Delurk Day art.
