Can IndiBloggers make the Difference? – 40,000 kids depend on you or is it just about that?
At IndiBlogger we believe in a code and the code is simple as it’s from the movie Troy; Honour the god(s), love your woman/man and defend your country!
Those days of chivalry are still at hand. We might not fight with sticks and stones any more but we can do so with the power of the collective words towards social causes. Soldiers fighting a war was a social cause and nothing more. India has a huge online community and the huge network of bloggers in the IndiBlogger database is a testament to that fact.
So what are we fighting for? Well its not only the 40,000 kids that GiveIndia promises to educate. It’s the very core of our blogging existence. To understand this, we have to wonder why we started blogging. Was it for the fame or the money or the hits on our homepage or the recognition? We believe it was to make a difference. This is the time for all of us to unite under one banner. We might be from different parts of India, speaking different languages, writing about different things, none of this matters if we can’t help the community.
Over the past two days we have received many blog posts on GiveIndia’s campaign to help win one million dollars that will go a long way to educate 40,000 kids in India. The truth of the matter is that it’s not even close to its full potential. In effect it means that Hector called his troops into battle and 90% of them did not show up. Well, try defending Troy with that.
Imagine the power if we all blogged about this. Words will not be able to describe the outcome of such an event
So here’s what we have to do before the 22nd of January,

In the words of Achilles (Troy again) “Do you know what’s there, waiting, beyond that beach? Immortality! Take it! It’s yours!”
Well that’s what is at stake and here are some of our heroes contributing to the battle; Please do add your blog posts in the comments so we can update the list accordingly!
