Calling all Bloggers: Help Grow Our Efforts to Build Understanding, Respect and Relationships among People of all Faiths & Beliefs by Blogging

Dear blogging or soon-to-be-blogging friends,

First of all, thanks so much for all the love you have shown us at Project Interfaith. Whether you have added our blog to your blogroll, given us advice on how to better reach out and connect people to our mission and work, made a donation, or given some other form of support, it helps and I and everybody else involved with Project Interfaith so appreciate it.

Now I have one more BIG way that you can help us grow our efforts to build understanding and respect among people of all faiths and beliefs. Zemanta is offering $6,000 to the organization that is blogged about most. The details are at the link below. You basically just need to tell people why you dig Project Interfaith and how we are making a positive difference. Offer up whatever floats your boat: whether it's our focus on relationships, not agreement; our efforts to use the arts to explore and educate about religious diversity; our work with educators, caregivers, health care providers, social workers, and other professionals to make sure they are able to work with and serve people of all faiths and beliefs; the incredible speakers like Reza Aslan and Krista Tippett that we have brought to Omaha through our Community Conversations annual speaker series; or our snazzy logo and materials provided by our amazing design partner Oxide Design Co. Here's the important part, for it to count towards our campaign of support you must paste in:

This blog post is part of Zemanta's "http://www.zemanta.com/bloggingforacause/">Blogging For a Cause" campaign to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes that bloggers care about.

Please help us spread the word about our passion and work to make our community and world a place where people of all faiths and beliefs are valued and included~ and to have fun, build relationships, and be creative while we do it. Take a moment to blog about us and to encourage other bloggers who are supportive our mission and work to do so as well.

Our amazing friend Sidney Hargro, who writes a truly inspiring blog http://www.innovate2uplift.net/, brought this challenge to our attention and got the ball rolling by interviewing me for the Raising the Buzz section of his blog. Check it out and let us know what you think if you have a chance.

Thanks so much for your support through blogging,

Beth Katz
Founder and Executive Director

Hi guys, I Just wanted to say what a brilliant work you are doing and how vital I believe this to be. I blogged for you and have asked my contacts to as well.

I would love to enable this project to find its way here in the UK.

Keep up the good work.

If people are interested in more formalized blogging, they might consider submitting an article for the "Discourse" section of the Journal of Inter-Religious Dialogue, http://www.irdialogue.org/submissions.
