Welcome to Buck-a-Hit Day II

Welcome to the second annual Buck-a-Hit Day on this blog. By visiting this site today, you have caused me to give $1 to a charity that feeds or shelters needy people here in Oregon. The Mrs. and I will give another $1 for every additional unique visit to the site before midnight tonight (as determined by SiteMeter), up to a maximum of $1,250.

Last year, we reached 1,000 hits by 4:20 p.m. It will be interesting to see what happens this year, when we've hyped this a bit more mildly.

Our charities are the Oregon Food Bank; the food pantry of St. Philip Neri Parish; and Daybreak Shelter for homeless families.

Thanks for coming here today. If you are a newcomer, I hope that you will look around the site a bit and come back again another day. (If you've got some time to hang around, I really enjoyed making this. And here's something you don't hear every day.) Please don't hesitate to get out the word to others who may want to visit today.

UPDATE, 4:15 a.m.: A good thing has happened already. A guy who calls himself Teacherrefpoet (he being a teacher, a sports referee, and a poet) has posted a link to this site for the cause. And so I've discovered his blog, called Various Observations in Written Form, which ain't bad.

UPDATE, 4:43 a.m.: I'll be changing the time stamp on this post throughout the day to keep it up on top of the main page.

UPDATE, 12:39 p.m.: We just passed the 900 mark. Great! Thanks so much, folks!

UPDATE, 3:07 p.m.: We made it!

Thanks for the props. My blushing bride-to-be has also posted a link here: swankhouse.blogspot.com.

We're thinking of copying your idea.


Hey, great idea.

My wife is a part of an online forum and posted a link on www.indiebride.com. Keep up the good work!

Thanks for this great blog!
I really enjoyed it, and appreciate your charitable nature!


Got this info from Random Mentality. Glad to be able to help. Good Luck. BTW: That is a really cute baby. :-)

Hey Jack.
I'm one of Lars Larson's deticated listeners. I often enjoy your blog (even though I don't always agree with you) when Lars reads it on the air virtually everyday. I just wanted to let you know that this is a great idea, and I thank you for doing it.
Even though it's not PC,
God Bless You and Your Family!


Heard about this on Lars Larson today--

What an incredibly nice and generous thing for y'all to do.

~fantastic idea and what a great way to aid 3 worthy causes...I commend you and your better 1/2, all the best to you and yours over the holidays~

What a wonderful thing that you are doing!

This is a very cool idea.

Great idea, I am sure the goal will be far surpassed before evening

What an excellent idea!

Late to the party.

I'm here for the $1 donation....but your site is interesting, too. "Heard" about this at Alas blog.

Heard about this on the Lars Larson show today and thought I would stop in and check it out. Interesting site.

I wanted to post for the $1 donation as well. Got the link from Lean Left blog.
