Bloggers can do good

November 7th, 2007

Fred Wilson writes a terrific blog about his experience as a VC in NYC. Recently, he participated in a competition across the blogosphere to see who could raise the most money for teachers through donorschoose.org and he won by raising $18,500 from 92 donors. Interestingly, he gave away the prize to one of the donors: a lunch with Jerry Yang. More remarkably, the winning donor choose to give away the prize by hosting an essay writing contest for Oakland public school students. It’s a great read, and a good example of bloggers flexing their online muscles to make change in the real world.
