I am borrowing this paragraph from Confessions of a CF Husband since he puts it so well! No need to reinvent the wheel! :)
"Squidoo (an online group that raises tons of money for charities) is giving $80,000 to the charities of your choice. Basically, anyone who wants to participate can vote for one charity (from a list of about 50...don't vote more than once or all your votes will be deleted)...Squidoo will donate $2/vote. You don't even have to sign up for anything! Feel free to CLICK HERE and vote for any charity you believe could use $2. You have until October 15 to vote!"
Hey, we all have something we are passionate about, so why not? :)
