Just a short note to let people know that the Blogging for Chickens project is officially over.
Thanks to all who have made donations. The total raised was $1100 (AU) (around $830US) – that is 110 pairs of chickens going to families living in poverty.
Having travelled through and lived for short periods of time in a number of slums in SE Asian countries I know what an impact even a small donation like this can have upon the life of a family – thank you all for your generosity.
In the next day or two (once a couple of paypal e-checks have cleared) I’ll make a payment to Oxfam on behalf of those who took the option to donate via my paypal (most of those who participated took this option).
