Project description

Madagascar bloggers held a blog-a-thon to raise money for orphans in the villages of Vontovorona, Mangarano and Anstirabe. The theme was fairy tales, with a different blogger posting a traditional Malagasy story every 30 minutes.

The project is to organize, publicize, and run a blog-a-thon in your home country. It can be use to raise funds for or awareness of a cause of your choice. All the materials created during the blog-a-thon must be released under an open content license - try to get bloggers to write posts that will have lasting value beyond the blog-a-thon; for instance, the traditional stories in the Madagascar blog-a-thon could be collected and compiled in a free book for children and published online after the event.
