Tomorrow, the 2008 Donors Choose Blogger Challenge begins. Donors Choose is an incredible organization that matches teachers in high-needs schools with people who are willing to give. Teachers register with the site and describe what projects they need sponsored, and donors can pick and choose which projects they want to help fund. Donors receive thank-you notes from the teacher and from the students, as well as the satisfaction of knowing they made some teachers' lives that much easier.
So the Blogger Challenge is just a bunch of us bloggers competing over who can raise the most money. I would like to win this thing, of course, but more importantly I want to get a big fat bunch of money raised. So I ask you, the readers: what sort of hoops would you like to see me jump through in order to raise some money? I can and will humiliate myself on video, if it's for a good cause. As long as it doesn't involve anything death-defying, expensive, or nude, I will consider it. Please email me your ideas at finslippy AT gmail DOT com. Be gentle. And hilarious.
My Blogger Challenge link will be up tomorrow morning. I can't wait!
UPDATED TO ADD: There are going to be some gifts given away, in exchange for donations. If you have an item or items you want to give away to a Finslippy reader, now's your chance! Email me.
