Charity

Hi folks!

So, I have a question for you--do you support any specific charities, and if so, which one(s)?

I've tended to support education and scholarship funds, animal rescues, and international aid societies like Doctors Without Borders. But I really like Nothing But Nets (http://www.nothingbutnets.net/). They focus on malaria prevention in sub-Saharan Africa, and they're now launching an initiative to help Sudanese refugees. So, I'm sending out this appeal:

Make a donation to Nothing But Nets between now and April 5th (midnight, EDT), and then leave a comment below. On Friday the 6th, I'll use random.org to pick a winner, and send that person his/her choice of an ARC or first edition of any Spencer Hill Press book out now or scheduled for release in 2012, including:

Don't worry--I'll make sure the author gets royalties! 

I'll donate a dollar for each "I donated!" post we receive (although I'll cap it at $100, so Mr. Bear doesn't have a coronary). Please spread the word--we all could use the good karma.

I support the following:

Make-A-Wish (they granted my cousin his wish before he passed away)
MDA (my cousin had a form of MD which contributed to his passing)
Susan G Komen (my mother is a breast cancer survivor)

I give to those 3 whenever I possibly can!

This is a great idea and a great way to spread the news about a cause. I just sent in a donation! :) I'm shocked that this post has been up for 3 hours and no one has done it yet! I doubt I'll get the ARC but I'm glad I could help!!!

And apparently my time-zones are off and it's only been up for 20 minutes. I'll put my foot in my mouth on that one!

I just donated. Thanks for posting about about Nothing But Nets. I usually donate through www.changingthepresent.org. NBN is a great organization, and I will definitely donate again.

I just donated. This is a wonderful idea!

I've donated a few times to NBN, and I make it a point to donate to various other organizations (ASPCA and the cancer society).
