Blogathon Against Torture Links

Well, the blogathon is over for 2006. I'll add my thanks to what was posted on the blog against torture.

From blogagainsttorture: Congrats! We Did It!

Thank you so much to everyone who volunteered their time - (in no particular order) Mash, Robbie, Ingrid, Per, Marcella, Bodda, Heretical Jew, Chuck, cyberotter...you've all been fantastic. Thanks also to our wonderful monitor, Barbara.

Of course, our second main goal was to raise money for Amnesty International USA, and so far we have officially raised an amazing $1157, all of which will go directly Amnesty USA.Thank you so much to all our sponsors - you have done a good deed by helping us out, and it is hugely appreciated.

Don't forget that we can still get sponsors up to 48 hours after the Blogathon finishes, so keep pestering everyone you know.

If you support the efforts of Amnesty International USA and you want to encourage a blogathon against torture 2007, please go to our blogathon sponsor page and become one of our sponsors.
