Welcome one and all to Punny Money, the best site on the internet for personal finances news, tips, and discussion with a bit of humor thrown in. For the next 24 hours, we’ll be blogging with 365 other sites around the world to raise money for good causes. Punny Money’s charity for this event will be First Book, an organization dedicated to giving the children of low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first books.
So here’s how things will work for the next 24 hours.
You’ll see one personal finance article roughly every hour on a variety of topics. I’m making this stuff up as I go along, and you’ll have to forgive me if my writing goes a little downhill by about 4am.
Also taking place during these 24 hours is the Punny Money Really Hard Trivia Contest which carries a top prize of a $50 eGift Certificate (along with a $25 eGift Certificate for the runner-up). The first question is already up and could close for guesses at any time, so head over there now and make your guess!
And finally, if you’d like to help support Punny Money’s blogathon efforts, please consider making a pledge to First Book through the Blogathon 2006 website. It’s safe and secure, and you can make your donation directly on First Book’s website following the conclusion of the Blogathon.
Oh, I almost forgot this part: Punny Money will be donating all advertising and affiliate revenue it earns during the 24-hour blogathon to First Book.
Thank you for your support, everyone! Now sit back, grab your mouse, and keep checking back for the next 24 hours for more personal finance and contest fun.
