Alright. I’ve whined and procrastinated enough. It’s time for me to cowboy up and get my Birthday Charity Challenge going.
As of right now, not only do I need a proper cause to donate to, but I need a prize I can give to my readers as a reward for their generosity. I’m pretty sure I can come up with a worthy cause on my own. However, since I don’t communicate with the majority of you directly, I have absolutely no idea what would constitute as a ‘good prize.’
At first, I thought I’d post of picture of myself and allow you all the opportunity to photoshop it in unusual and insulting ways. But then I thought, ‘How many people would actually care about that? Outside of a handful of mommybloggers, I mean.’
Then I thought that since my Christmas Contest was so successful, I’d do something similar and give a random person who is currently subscribed to my rss feed some money. I was thinking of something in the neighborhood of $500. Furthermore, the money would come out of my own pocket. I wouldn’t take away from the ‘donated’ money to use as a prize or anything like that.
Of course, there is always the possibility that both of these prize ideas suck and I should scrape them completely and think of something better. So I figured I’d make a little poll for you all to vote on so you can tell me what prize you’d prefer: The chance to win $500 or a picture of me posted on this site. Also, there’s a ‘none of the above’ option for people who couldn’t care less about either of those things.
Also, if you have an idea for a prize, feel free to suggest it on your site or myspace or whatever and track it back to this post. I really want the the prize to be something good as to motivate people to donate heavily. Suggestions on what Charity to donate to are welcome as well.
Until then, vote wisely folks.
