The Season of Giving: A Different Kind of Giveaway

The holiday season is in full swing.  The season of giving.  At this time of year, it can be so very easy to get caught up in things, be it all the things we feel we “need” to buy for others, or things that we hope to receive from others.  While it is certainly a wonderful gesture to give friends and loved ones a token of appreciation, we must not forget to give of ourselves to those who are truly in need.

To this end, this year I have decided that in lieu of spending money on shiny new gadgets to give away to you, lovely readers, I will instead donate to those in need on your behalf.   There are innumerable charitable causes that are all so deserving of contributions, but for the sake of simplification, I have compiled several options to choose from below.  Five comments will be selected at random, and the winning individuals may select a cause from the list below to receive a donation from me.

To enter, leave a comment on THIS POST.  That’s it!

The Rules: One entry per person.  Commenting will open Monday, December 17 at 4:30 am EST and close on Thursday, December 20 at 10:00 pm EST.  Entries that do not follow the entry requirements will not be considered.  Five winners will be selected at random and contacted via email by the end of the week to select their charity of choice.

Full disclosure: This giveaway is sponsored by Annie’s Eats.

So you don’t feel left out, there will still be a series of giveaways of fun prizes for you to win throughout the rest of the week, but these have all been graciously provided by their corresponding companies so that I can put all of my resources towards other causes.  Also, if you have suggestions of charitable causes to receive future donations, please let me know via the contact form.  More on this to come in the future.
