You'll notice something new in the right column of my blog's home page this month. What's the widget for? It's 'Hands Across The Burghosphere'.
Readers of Pittsburgh area blogs can join in by using the link to support the work of a local non-profit--Pittsburgh Action Against Rape. The widget posted on participating blogs will be tracking the amount of money raised.
As you can read on the organization's website, Pittsburgh Action Against Rape has been serving Allegheny County since 1972 and is one of the oldest rape crisis centers in the nation.
The online event is the brainchild of The Burgher, the creator of The Burgh Report. The Burger took the initiative in creating it and inviting local bloggers and their readers to take part in 'Hands Across The Burghosphere'.
