Get Blogging for a Cause

Banknotes from all around the World donated by...Image via Wikipedia

Want to earn your favourite charity a share of (at least) $6000?

Silly question. Of course you do!

The clever folk at Zemanta have been working with Social Actions, an initiative that aggregates civic causes from more than 50 databases, to create a tool that recommends charitable causes to bloggers while they write. In recognition of their great work they were awarded 2nd prize at the Change The Web Challenge.

Zemanta have chosen to donate the $3000 prize money to charity - and the good guys at Social Innovation Greenhouse @ Weber Shandwick have generously offered to match that donation. But its up to bloggers to decide who gets the money.

All you have to do is blog about your favourite cause - and get as many people as you can to join with you! The 5 charities with the most blog posts get to share the money! You have until the 6th of June to get your post out there!

You need to add a wee snippet of code to your blog post so that Zemanta can find it. You can get you code here.
