The World's Greatest Site gets new Blog...

...in my opinion.

That's right (as if you haven't guessed what I'm talking about), the mighty Justgiving has a new home for its blog on Typepad. It looks like it has the making of being a more potent tool for folks fundraising for charities. Very Web 2.0.

It's great to see people really making their fundraising pages work for their chosen charities. On the Another Chance to See site (inspired by Douglas Adams and Mark Cawardine's trip around the world to see endangered animals), they're using their Justgiving thermometer to track progress of their fundraising for one of Douglas's favourite charities, Save the Rhino.

In another example, a group are raising funds for Sam, a little boy who was paralysed in a car accident, by selling books via Justgiving.

Inspiring. It's not all marathons you know.

Hop to it. Do something daft and raise some doh.

Hello ClickRich,

Stumbled across your link to our Stuff4Sam site and wanted to say thank you for giving us a mention and also big up Just Giving - without that site it would be so much harder to raise money for Sam. So far we've used it for raising cash via Arctic dog sledding, Xmas sales, bike rides, book sales and running.

We'll also be organisaing a huge party in London in teh autumn so keep an eye out!

Love your blog by the way.
