Anders Jacobsen’s Tsunami Victims Fund Drive

“Anders Jacobsen”:http://www.jacobsen.no/anders/blog/ will be giving US$ 1 to the “British Red Cross”:http://www.redcross.org.uk/ for every web log that picks up on his “Tsunami Victims fundraiser challenge”:http://www.jacobsen.no/anders/blog/archives/2005/01/02/webloggers_give_to_tsunami_victims_and_ill_give_too.html. This is a great idea, and within “48 hours”:http://www.jacobsen.no/anders/blog/archives/2005/01/04/74_bloggers_raise_a_buck_each_in_48_hours.html 74 blogs had responded.
