In November, inspired by a group of authors who were auctioning off stories in support of Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, I made the pledge to donate $5 for every post I did that month to a charity. I had a great time doing it and it was a very productive month with 21 posts being written (on a variety of topics). So I am going to continue this into 2013.
Every month, I will be choosing a different charity to donate to. I will donate $5 for each post that I write (minimum $50 each month). I will be using Charity Navigator to help me decide which charities to give to (this website rates charities on their overall donation to the cause/compared with costs of running etc).
If anyone has any idea of a charity that they would like to see supported, please let me know. (While I realize that charities like St. Jude’s do a lot of life-saving research, I already donate to them on a monthly basis, and so will not use them for this goal).
If anyone wants to join in – feel free – if I get some interest, I’ll put up a Mr. Linky tool in the overall tracker.
