Kate Bladow over at Technola.la posed a challenge to bloggers everywhere last week; to post one blog post between October 24 and October 30 in honor of the 2010 National Pro Bono Celebration. The week- long celebration is sponsored by the ABA Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service. Last year, the celebration was a success but as Bladow notes, "only a few bloggers published posts to recognize the lawyers and paralegals who provide free legal services to those who can't afford to pay."
To participate, write a post about what pro bono means to you. You don't need to be a lawyer, but lawyers are certainly encouraged to participate. You could be a client, for example, who received pro bono services or you could comment on what you admire about a legal colleague for their dedication to pro bono work. The options are endless! Bladow does a wonderful job of giving some ideas to help get you started. Check out her challenge here.
We'll also be participating over here at ThePRLawyer!
