The following notice is from the Bloggers Unite network.

Bloggers Unite for Refugees, November 10th‏:
This Nov. 10, all eyes will be on BlogCatalog members and bloggers who participate in Bloggers Unite For Refugees. Will you be one of them?
Ever since we started helping bloggers unite for different causes, we've proven that a little good can go a long way in making the world a better place.
This time, because of our work to increase human rights awareness, many members chose to go one step further to raise awareness for refugees — people who are impacted by these issues. So, on Nov. 10, thousands of bloggers will write about the various challenges faced by the 11 million people who have no country to call home and the 40 million more who have been displaced because of war and natural disasters.
By writing just one post for this cause, you can help raise awareness about refugees and help our partner, Refugees United, connect with local non-government organizations (NGOs) to help refugees in their search for lost loved ones. Their goal is to reunite children with parents, husbands with wives, and family members with friends.
Participating is easy and you can learn more about this event at There, you will find action badges, source material for blog posts, and more information about these people who have no country to call home.
With you help, I know we can encourage thousands of more bloggers to get involved and make Bloggers Unite For Refugees as successful as our last event with Amnesty International. It's one of those events that even if we reunite just one family, then we have made an immeasurable impact on the world. Thanks so much for your continued support! We really look forward to reading your posts and the posts of your friends on Nov. 10!
The BlogCatalog Team
P.S. We are launching a whole new Bloggers Unite in the coming weeks, make sure to stop by and sign up to be notified when it launches!
