At the risk of repeating myself:
In the sidebar you will see a Donate button. My goal is to collect up to $300 from my readers. If we end up short, I’ll make up the difference. Though ideally, that amount will be less than half. Then, I’ll make a donation to a charity, submit my donation records to Gap Foundation and altogether, we will have $600 donated. Pretty nifty math for a girl who never bothers to balance her checkbook. But wait, it gets better.
Anyone who donates will be entered in a drawing. And so far, there are only nine donors so the odds of winning are pretty darn high. It doesn’t matter if you donate one dollar or five dollars. Your name will be written on a piece of paper and next Monday, after the donation window closes at noon, there will be a drawing. Note, donating multiple times doesn’t increase the number of chances you have to win one of the following:
First Prize: $50 Banana Republic Gift Card
Second Prize: $25 Banana Republic Gift Card
Third Prize: $10 Starbucks Gift Card
And since this is a group effort, I’m inviting you to help me pick the charity I tried to cover various causes and I intentionally went for national instead of regional organizations. I love my local Ronald McDonald House but not everyone who reads this blog lives in Philadelphia. Anyway, you (as in anyone) can vote in the sidebar as well. Although I'd appreciate it if you don't go and vote twenty times over for the sake of pushing your choice to the top.
Good luck and, well, thanks gang!
