Whether it was donating to the official BAD08 charity – The Global Fund, $3,159 was raised for that – or fundraising for their own preferred charities, bloggers gave freely to organisations like Feeding America, Donors Choose, World Hunger Relief and many, many more.

A heartening thing to know at a time like this.
