I plan to do something a little out of the ordinary this time. In addition to posting my poem and linking my post to others' posts for the Carnival, I will be running a Challenge for Haiti. It will work like this: For every posted comment about my poem for the Blog Carnival, I will make a donation to the Vassar Haiti Project. (I wrote about the VHP on Friday; you may read that post here.) My donation goal is $100. That means I will donate $1.00 for every posted comment up to a maximum of 100 comments.

I would be thrilled if others taking part in Tuesday's Carnival would consider adopting my idea. Let me know by 5:00 p.m. EST Monday (tomorrow) and I'll add your site link at the bottom of my post with the amount you'll be donating (or matching) and the relief aid organization to which you'll be donating. Any amount will help Haiti.
Please join us Tuesday for the Blog Carnival and help meet the Challenge for Haiti.
The Blog Carnival is on FaceBook. Links to posts for the Carnival appear either here or here on the Tuesday the Carnival takes place. I'll have a direct link from my post for January 26.
