Blogathon is five days away. To date, Get Rich Slowly readers have made 21 pledges for a total of $466. That’s outstanding, folks — I appreciate it.

All of the money raised through your sponsorships will go to support First Book, an organization that fosters reading among low-income children. I’ll be blogging for 24-hours straight on the 29th. Won’t you contribute a buck or two (or five or ten) to the cause? If you e-mail me after you pledge, I’ll post your name (and a link to your website). For more info, see my previous entry on Blogathon.
