Share a Charity Giveaway: $10 Cash

This blog has many purposes: sharing sweepstakes I've found, talking about my experiences with winning and losing, posting pictures of cats, and just talking about life. But more important to me than any of that is civic engagement and I started taking blogging a little more seriously when I thought of putting two awesome interests of mine together: giveaways and charity! 

So first among these potential "good cause giveaways" will be $10 CASH for contributing to my new Charities page! I would love to see what my audience really cares about, and why you feel it is important to get involved in making a difference in your community and your world.


Giveaway Rules: 
You must add a registered 501(c) non-profit organization to my Charities page in the most appropriate linky (there are 3). It can be local, national or international.  LEAVE THE ORGANIZATION NAME, NOT YOUR NAME PLEASE! After adding a link, use the Rafflecopter form to tell me which one, and which email address you used (only if it's different from the one you're using to enter the giveaway). This is the only mandatory entry, all others are optional, but will give you better odds of winning!

Giveaway is open to US and Canada. Must have a paypal account to receive the prize. Contest ends on March 1st. Winner will have 48 hours to reply to the congratulatory email before prize is forfeited and another winner is chosen.

  4. I choose the Canadian Cancer Society because cancer seems to affect everyone either directly or indirectly. It is a worthy cause! I also chose Compassion Canada as it reaches out to children in needy Countries to sponsor them and give them the chance for a better life.

  7. I added UNICEF and ASPCA because any cause that supports children and pets will always have my support. If I could provide food to end hunger for all kids, and homes for all pets I would! :)

  8. I chose the charity charity: water because I worry about the quality of our water as the runoff from the landfills enter our water supplies.

  9. I chose US FIRST Robotics because I believe it is a truly essential program. It helps prepare children for the careers of the 21st century. This organization helps channel all that teen angst into solving the problems of our future. FIRST alumni have already transformed the way NASA comes up with new prototypes. I repeat this program is essential!

  10. I added St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital because the work they do there is saving so many lives. I added Greenpeace because I have worked with them in the past and believe they are extremely passionate about the Earth and saving it.

  11. It's to help women with breast cancer. I thought it would be nice to just be there for women going through tough time.

  12. As an animal lover, I am actively involved in PETA (actually, peta2 to be technical) myself. They expose animal cruelty & open people's eyes up to SEE what they only hear about. They put together petitions & make things happen via bringing justice for the animal or stopping any further mistreatment. They have been very successful for a "charity" & are one of my very favorites.

    As for Make-A-Wish, I like this charity because you can choose where, who & how you'd like to donate.

  13. As "Mom" to a puppy mill rescue/survivor, shutting down horrific "breeding factories" if very near and dear to my heart. That's why I chose Hearts United for Animals, a wonderful and warm organization that is dedicated to doing just that. They have so many

  14. I chose the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation of America (CCFA.org) because I have Crohn's and they have so much information and support groups. I also chose Covenant House because they help homeless children. They advocate on behalf of these kids and have helped to make and change laws as well. They just do good work.

  15. I added the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and Ronald McDonald House Charities- my sister died at 7 years old from Leukemia so I am hopeful that with more and more research, there will be a cure. She underwent treatment halfway across the country from where we lived, and my family was able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House nearby. Both are wonderful organizations!

  16. I added Alley Cats & Angels of North Carolina. We are an all volunteer group dedicated to spaying/neutering cats in our community as well as adoption. Both feral and pet cats. We hold free, $5 and $10 spay/neuter clinics for lower income families to get their cats altered and vaccinated. If they can't afford the $5 or $10 copay we do not turn them away. We are small and mighty group, but with our spay/neuter program, our adoption program and our Trap/Neuter/Return program we are making a difference in our community. www.alleycatsandangels.org

  17. I choose the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research because my grandma suffered from Parkinson's and it's a horrible disease that I would love to see a cure found for.

  18. I added the National Kidney Foundation. My mother passed away last year due to complications from her kidney failure. The foundation helped her quite a bit with bills for dialysis. It's a charity near and dear to my heart.

  21. I choose the charity because I live so close to the lakes and see how gross and contaminated the water can become. We need water to sustain us and t, the plants and all wildlife.
