I had my hair colored the other day, and while I waited in the chair I was flipping through a magazine, Real Simple, I believe it was. There was an idea that I haven’t been able to get out of my mind, and I thought I’d give it a try.
I am issuing a challenge to all my readers – leave a comment telling me about your favorite charity, and why. I will choose one from the comments next week, and donate $1 for each comment I’ve received on this post to that charity, up to $50. This is coming from my own pocket, no one is funding this but me. But I love the community aspect of giving, and I’m hoping to learn about some charities I may not already know about. I’m not sure how I’ll pick it – whether by whoever makes the best case, pulling a number out of a hat, humor, whether I like you or not (just kidding!), or some other method I decide on at the last minute. But pick one I will!
So tell all your friends to come post here and tell me which charity we should donate to! Comments will be closed at 5:00 pm EST on Wednesday, December 17th, and I’ll announce the winner here the next day.
Disclaimer: The charity will have to be a legitimate, registered, non-profit 501(c) organization.
