$250 Holiday Giveaway: Nominate Your Favorite Charity!

Holiday SpiritThe holiday season has got all of us at Pongo feeling jolly and grateful. To express our gratitude to you for helping make this blog as successful as it is, and help a good cause at the same time, we're going to donate $250 to one lucky reader's favorite charity!

All you have to do to participate is leave a comment below, telling us which organization you want us to contribute to.

Pongo Holiday Giveaway Guidelines

When you submit your comment, be sure to fill in the Contributor, Email, and Comment fields. (Don't worry! Your email address will not be posted on the site.)

To qualify your charity for the giveaway, make sure to include the following:

  1. The name of your charity (a verifiable non-profit);
  2. The charity's web site or physical address and telephone number; and
  3. What the charity benefits or supports.

If you have any comments or questions, you can post those as well.

Your comment must be submitted by 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday, December 16, 2008. Once the contest ends, we'll throw all the eligible entries into a hat and randomly draw the winning charity.

The winner will be contacted on Wednesday, December 17 by email. If your comment is selected, you will have 24 hours to respond (one more way for us to verify that the entry is real) or we'll draw another winner.

We'll announce the winner and his/her charity of choice in a special blog post on Thursday, December 18. We look forward to learning about all the great charities our readers support!

P.S. A hat tip to Jeff Nickles at My Super-Charged Life and the 2008 issue of Real Simple for giving us this fantastic idea!

Happy Holidays!
- Team Pongo
