Come Learn and Share Information about Recycling, Crocheting & Recycled Crafting

Bloggers Unite Day

Posted on November 9, 2008

In support of Bloggers Unite Day, I am putting aside my crochet hook and my recycled bags to blog about an important cause. On November 10th, thousands of bloggers from around the world will unite to raise their voices on behalf of more than 40 million voiceless refugees. We blog to bring attention to this crisis and to join hearts and minds to help bring forward information, understanding and action.

Refugees United is a non-profit organization that helps refugees relocate family and friends through the use of the internet.

Refugees United provides refugees with an anonymous forum to reconnect with missing family. By registering with nick-names, scars, former locations and other markers only identifiable to family and close friends, everyone can remain ‘invisible’ to all but relatives.

* All refugees are welcome, regardless of conflict, place or time.
* Refugees United is an independent, non-political, non-religious NGO.
* No third party is involved. No official papers need to be filled in.
* The service is free of charge, easy and safe.

The Refugees United search engine is the first of it’s kind. Visit Refugees United to see how it works and to learn more about the work that Refugees United is doing.

So get the word out and lets spread the news in support of Bloggers Unite Day. More information on participating can be found at BlogCatalog. We can all make a difference and unite today!

    Hi, what a great post for bloggers unite. I suspect that your readers just like mine are wondering, hey what happened to the crafting? But, sometimes it is necessary to post about a social issue, you have also included some great links…

    Hey next time, I also look forward to checking out your blog when you have the crochet hook back in hand – Hugs, Chrissy:D

    Thanks for commenting on my blog and joining the Bloggers Unite for Refugees initiative. That was a good article.

    I also thank you for promoting recycling and giving ideas to your visitors on how to help the environment. One blog can make a small difference in the blogosphere, but one community of bloggers united can make a big difference and bring change to this world.
