Kathy Handley, a blogger in Oklahoma City, will stay up for 24 hours straight this weekend and blog at least every half hour about exonerations, wrongful convictions and criminal justice reforms taking place nationwide. Her aim is to raise money for the Innocence Project through the Blogathon, an annual online event in which hundreds of people blog for 24 hours to raise money for worthy causes. So far, more than 500 bloggers have raised over $70,000 for various causes. 100% of donation goes directly to the selected non-profit, and does not pass through any other group.
Handley’s blog, Welcome to the Monkey House, has raised $151 so far for the Innocence Project and she has pledged to match the first $200 donated.

The Innocence Project thanks Handley for her generous gesture and for spreading the word about wrongful convictions. You can help us spread the word, too.
