How about 1 Million Blogs for Peace to end the war in Iraq?
I came across it this morning, and think it's an interesting idea. So many blogs, so many bloggers, and what can it hurt; maybe it can even help.
One Million Blogs for Peace
Images they provide to place on your blog, after you sign up your blog at their site.
(read more about the concept and pledge below the fold - assuming diaries have a fold)
Between 20 March 2007 and 20 March 2008 (the fifth year of the war), we will attempt to sign up One Million Blogs for Peace. By signing up, a blogger is stating his or her agreement with The Pledge below. They will then be able to participate in various challenges launched by One Million Blogs for Peace. They will also be listed on this website with a link to their blog.
Bloggers may take The Pledge and sign up before the launch date of 30 March 2007 and will be declared an "Inblogural" (Inaugural Blog) of the movement.
Additional blogs from other nations may list themselves as "Support Blogs". While not counting toward the 1,000,000 count, these blogs will be eligible to participate in some of the challenges and will be listed in their own section.
