I don't normally do this

Every now and then I get asked to promote share information about a web site or charity. I usually just say no because I feel like if I do I should research it and think seriously about it and well, who has the time for that?

I agreed to share this one though. I checked it out enough to know that it is legit, but you should do your own research and make your own decision.

There's the credit card company (the one whose name includes "American") which is having a contest which will determine which charities will get a bunch of money. If you happen to have this credit card you can vote. I really do encourage you to do that. A bunch of money is being given away and you should exercise your opportunity to influence where it goes.

I was contacted by International Medical Corps who wants to use the money to reduce starvation amoung children.

So check them out, and if you have that card, send in your vote.

  1. That's funny--I don't usually like to forward this sort of thing to my friends, or post on my Facebook page, because I worry about seeming kind of obnoxious. But I've also been receiving e-mails from IMC regarding this, and I think they do fantastic work. Thanks for posting and spreading the word! You've inspired me to do a bit of the same!

    For the record, I'm pretty sure you can sign on as a guest and still vote--it's just a bit more of a pain in the butt. It's incredibly easy if you already have the credit card.
