12 Days of Giving 2011-Add your name here

I did this last year and really, really enjoyed the results, so we’re back for version deux. If some of the post sounds familiar, it is. Why fix something that wasn’t broken. ;)

In the spirit of the holidays, I want to give something back. To you, my readers, but also to others.

Here’s the deal. Every day for the next 12 days, I’m going to challenge you to ‘give’. Not necessarily financially, because, yeah, I know that’s tough at times. But we really are fortunate to enjoy many things. I’m going to finish 2011 as strong as I can, and I encourage you to join me.

There will be a few gifts up for grabs along the way but the BIG gift is this: $100 donated in your name to the charity of your choice. At the end of the 12 days time I’ll randomly pick 5 commenters from this thread and their suggested organization will get $100. If you want to add a link to your organization in the comments, please feel free to do that.

In order to qualify for the $100 donation, you don’t have to meet the challenge for the 12 coming days– those are strictly for fun and encouragement, although I hope you do join in and share some love. To be entered, simply add your name to this comment list along with the name of the organization you would like the money to go to if you are one of the five selected. Basically consider this me asking you for suggestions for great places to support.

This is an international opportunity- I don’t care where you live (if it’s legal for you to participate yada yada yada…) as long as I can somehow support the organization you suggest.

I hope you will join me in this celebration of giving.

And come back tomorrow for the first challenge.

My 9year old boy has been raising money for this group for the last three years. Last year he was the largest kid donation collector and it does me proud. So to help him a little, I would put in the hat FOBA. A homeless animal group that helps take in strays and get them medicel help, feed and find them homes. They are also trying to raise money to build a no kill shelter. So for my Gavin please enter:

I would like to put Stray Rescue in the mix. One person CAN make a difference: Randy Grimm started out as a homeless man, helping to protect the stray dogs here in the city. He raised the money for a cheap storefront, and got donations of food and medical care, and things have grown to become a wonderful agency to aid the animals in the area. They even won a nationwide contest, and that helped him to build a proper shelter and enlish volunteers and staff.

I would choose Ronald McDonald House http://rmhc.org/as the charity to donate to. They were such a blessing to my neice’s family when her daughter had to have several heart surgeries.

I do monthly donations for Ducks Unlimited and War Amps throughout the year, but I always do animal adoptions with World Wildlife Fund on http://www.wwf.ca every Christmas, but for $50 or $100 you can make a specific donation to certain species like polar bears, tigers and spirit bears so I’d like to add them to your list of options!
Why is it not a surprise that for someone who writes about shifters a lot, most of the charities so far involve animals….

The charity I would like to recommend is Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (Jdrf.org). My son was diagnosed at age four.

Two of my favorite things to support are my local animal shelter– http://www.petfinder.com/shelters/KY359.html — and the Kentucky Children’s Hospital (part of the University of Kentucky Hospital). This was the hospital where my nephew was taken when he was about a week old, and having life threatening seizures. Without their talented doctors, I don’t know what would have happened. He is now 11 years old and as of right now seizure free. (Unfortunately both his older sisters have seizures too, though thankfully not the life-threatening ones he had). They too go to UK doctors!

I am choosing The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (here is the link: http:\www.foodallergy.org) . They were a fabulous support for me when my son was diagnosed with life threatening food allergies.

What a wonderful idea. One of the charities we support is the Electronic Frontier Foundation or EFF. This group fights to defeat legislation that restricts access to the Web. Currently they are fighting hard to defeat the unbelievably ill-advised SOPA legislation that is being ramrodded through Congress. This legislation would allow the gov’t to shut down ANY website that is suspected (not proven) of copyright infringement. Supposedly it’s to prevent online piracy, but the bill is so broad that it would allow the shut-down for example, of a book blogger that posts an excerpt from a book on their website.… Read more »

My choice is a fairly new charity, but they do important work. CARMA (CAT RESCUE MARITIMES) helps provide healthcare, food and shelter for feral and stray cats in Atlantic Canada. It’s just incredibly sad that such a group is even needed…..

And I just looked that donation could get them these special beds they use for the animals there. I might look into donating one of those myself when I can gather some money together. :)
