$500 Holiday Giveaway: Nominate Your Favorite Charity!

Holiday giveawayIt's that time of year again—the time to make our holiday charity donations! And we're asking you to help us select which charities Pongo will contribute to. Our very first giveaway was December 2008, when we selected one reader-submitted charity to receive a $250 donation. This year, we're doubling the prize and donating $250 to two charities of your choice!

Last year's winning charity was submitted by reader Victoria, who nominated Camp Heartland/One Heartland, a non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of children, youth, and their families who are impacted by HIV/AIDS and other significant life challenges.

Now, here's your chance to tell us which charities you think we should donate to this year. All you have to do is follow the rules below:

Two reader-nominated charities will each receive $250.

How to Enter
In the "Post a Comment" section below, fill in your Name and Email, then tell us:

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

Don't worry! Your email address will not be posted on the site and we never spam!

Contest Dates
Begins today (Wednesday, December 9, 2009) and ends at 5 pm EST on Wednesday, December 16, 2009. The winners will be selected using We'll announce the winners in a follow-up blog post on Friday, December 18, 2009.

If you have any other comments or questions, feel free to post those as well!

Happy Holidays!
