Tense for a Reason

Good News

Filed under: Blogathon, Smiles — Tense @ 2:50 pm

I sent The Smile Train an email letting them know about my upcoming involvement with the Blogathon and asking if I could use some of their pictures and stories to help with the cause, and I got the nicest, most informative email reply. I’m getting more and more excited about this by the day. Check this out (I combined the 2 emails I received):

Wow! Thanks for sharing your story and for considering the Smile Train for this event. You do have permission to post our stories and use our pictures. Please let me know how this goes. This is a first Blog event for us and it is really exciting. I will send you some pictures you can use.
If people want to make a donation instruct them to go to our website, pick tribute donation, and put your name in the tribute. In that way I can track any additional donation from your blog. For more information, or to make a donation, please visit www.smiletrain.org or call 1-877-KID-SMILE. 100% of your donation goes toward programs – 0% goes toward overhead. All nonprogram expenses, such as overhead and fundraising, are paid for with start-up grants from Smile Train founding supporters.

  1. Wow! That’s great they emailed you back. I emailed mine but am yet to get a response :\. I am definitely going to link you and watch your blog during the ‘thon. If you want to add me on MSN to talk to when sleep deprivation kicks in, feel free. I am about to be an English teacher as well (I think you will like the Charity I am supporting) and living with my geeky bf… so aren’t too dissimilar.

  2. That is really nice. I am thinking of doing this next time for Lungevity.

    I did my donation through the Blogathon. Do I have to go to The Smile Train too?
