I got this idea last year reading my Real Simple magazine and an article on how people give back over the holidays. One reader wrote that she has a charity giveaway on her blog. Great idea!
Last year the winner was the HeartLight Center. Thanks to all who nominated or voted in the First Annual End of Life Charity Giveback.
So here are the rules: Just hit the comment button below and nominate your favorite end of life non-profit organization. For every subsequent comment from another visitor agreeing with your nomination I will donate $1 to the charity with the most votes, up to $500. It can be a local, state, or national organization related to any end of life industry: funeral service, hospice, organ donation, grief and bereavement, burial assistance fund, military, mentor associations, or something I haven’t thought of. I’ll close the comments out on December 30th, and let the voters choose the winner.
I reserve the right to deem any organization unsuitable for the contest. The charity must be a non-profit, and must be verifiable as legitimate. I won’t donate to any group that I morally or ethically oppose, such as an assisted suicide organization.
Make your nomination now and let’s see if we can raise $500 for your favorite end of life non-profit. Don’t forget to tell your friends and colleagues to vote too. You need them to win!
