Birthday bash day 4!

Today I'm giving back. Instead of a prize to an individual, I'm going to donate $20 to your favorite charity. Please leave a comment, letting me know which charity is near and dear to your heart (ahem, and not your book fund charity either. Must be for children or animals or breast cancer or MS or...) and a randomly selected winner will get a $20 contribution made to their charity of choice.

Contest ends noon CST on Wednesday, October 20th. Good luck!

  1. Hey Stacy-

    This is a cool idea. This month my top charities involve breast cancer because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. In fact tomorrow my company is celebrating "In The Pink" a local community awareness day. Almost everyone in my office will be wearing pink shirts to promote the cause. There were three out of 27 who chose not to participate so we have 89 percent who are.

    Anyway back to my charity of choice it would be The Little Red Door of East Central Indiana. These people provide help to cancer patients for things they need but can't afford. They also provide money for women to obtain mammograms who otherwise can't afford them.

    Great idea for a prize. Happy birthday day 4.

  2. What a wonderful idea! If picked I would choose to donate to The Humane Society of the United States. Thanks, Stacy!

  3. What a beautiful gift to give on your birthday!!

    Right now, I'm prepping for my Relay for Life walk for the ACS, so that's what would get my vote.

    But on behalf of whoever "wins", thank you for your generosity!

  4. Great idea, Stacy! I would donate the $20.00 to Lori's walk.

    Thanks so much!

  5. Wonderful idea Stacy. Im a firm believer that giving on your birthday is a wonderful way to celebrate. My fav charity is always St.Jude's Hospital. The provide cancer treatment and for kids regardless of financial status.

  6. VERY COOL of you:) I would pick an organization getting the word out and helping teens who are cutting-- My son has two friends that have been involved, and it's helped them:)

  7. My daughter works for Easter Seals as an assistant teacher in one of their pre-schools. They serve children with handicaps, her classroom having mostly autistic children.

  8. You are so thoughtful. This is a wonderful idea. In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, if I win, please donate to the American Cancer Society. Thank you, birthday girl.

  14. I have several charities I support, including ASPCA and American Red Cross, but the one I'd like to choose is The USO. They do so much for our soldiers that are away from home.

  18. This is a FANTASTIC idea Stacy!!! I am very active with animal welfare groups here in Austin, TX and the main one I work with is Blue Dog Rescue. Soooo, that would be my non-profit of choice! You are fabulous to do this.

  19. St. Jude's Children Hospital. This is a wonderful gift idea. :)

    What a great idea!

  22. My favorite charity is the YWCA Women's Shelter. I try to gather tolietries (spelling?) when they are on sale and donate them to the Shelter when I can!

  23. Special Olympics is my favorite charity.


  24. What a great idea and how nice to do something like this as part of a birthday celebration.

    I would choose to donate to The Central Asia Institute - this is the charity featured in the book Three Cups of Tea - they build schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

  25. You ROCK for doing this!! I'm going with the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence ( I am currently interning in an agency that assists victims of DV and their children. Even in 2010, we're still dealing with something that seems so Neanderthal to me. Every woman in my family, myself excluded, has experienced many forms of DV and it has fueled my fire to assist current victims.

    NCADV is a leading national org that does major research on the topic, provides info to victims on how to leave the situation, etc. They provide financial education, as one of the more common forms of DV is financial (the man doesn't allow the women to work/school, controls money, etc). They also provide cosmetic/reconstructive support for those who quality. They hold conferences, and have tons of materials Available for others to teach about DV in their community. Plus a heck of a lot more!

    Hope your birthday week has been awesome!

  26. Great idea. I would choose the American Cancer Society because my dad has just returned home from the hospital after having cancer surgery.

  27. If I win, please donate to a humane society
