Bloggers Make a Difference

Noel_with_squeakers Thanks to the efforts of many bloggers, we were able to raise $822.47 to help ease the financial strain caused by medical bills incurred by Gavin's father-in-law after a terrible cycling accident.

None of this would have been probable but for Gavin's tireless efforts to advance the conversation about marketing as well as promote others on his own blog. Gavin, we still owe you a great debt of gratitude for your contribution to this community. We're more than happy to give a little something back.

Thankfully, Noel's recovery has accelerated after his most recent operation, but it will still be a long while before he's able to get back on a bike. Please drop by the blog Gavin created for him from time to time and leave a note of good wishes.

Cam,
Thank you for taking the lead. This is a great example of the power of community, even one of the virtual kind.

Cam,

One of the things I love most about the internet and the intimacy of blogging is that strangers become friends.

Thanks to you for building the tool that allowed all of us to extend our friendship to Gavin and his family.

Drew

Hi Cam,

Come a bit late on this post, sorry. I also wanted to thank your initiative. I think we all learnt a lot out of it. Not to mention, I didn't miss your post thanks to... Gavin (Gav, you are one of a kind! Thanks also for all you've done, and still do).

Most of all... Noel is getting better now. : )
