Earth Day Giftaway...


Happy Earth Day! This very important day sort of snuck up on me, so I'm announcing a last minute giftaway to celebrate. In the spirit of conservation, instead of giving out physical *stuff* this time, I'll make a $100 donation in the winner's name to one of the organizations below. I chose a few organizations that are working locally to better our environment and to keep the creatures who inhabit this area safe. I found these organizations through JustGive.org, a great site where you can browse thousands of non-profits and make donations on behalf of another person. 
RULES
  • To win this giftaway, just leave a comment below with the organization you would like to receive $100 and why. Links are provided below. 
  • Be sure to leave your first name and town/city along with your comment (see sample below). 
  • Giftaway open only to FairfieldCountyChild.com subscribers. Not a subscriber? Just click here to become one. 
  • Choose one of these great organizations to receive $100
Connecticut Audubon Society

The winner will receive a note directly from JustGive.org as evidence of the donation. Good luck and thanks for entering. Contest ends tomorrow (Thursday April 23 at midnight).

SAMPLE:
If I won, I'd direct my $100 to the Wildlife Orphanage in Stamford because I love that they take the time to look out for helpless creatures that may otherwise be overlooked.

If I won, I'd love to see $100 go to PAWS. Now more than ever this organization could use the money to care for all of the animals that come their way.

If I won, I'd like to see the money go toward Connecticut Fund for the environment to support our lakes, rivers, beaches and the Long Island Sound.

If I won, I'd like the money to go to the Connecticut Fund for the Environment. If we don't have a healthy environment, we have nothing.

Thanks, Meg. What a great idea! I vote for the CT Audubon Society because of their great programming for kids.

I would select PAWS because our daughters are so in love with animals and feels they need help because they can't help themselves.

I would give to the CT Audubon Society. My husband grew up going to the Fairfield center and my young daughters already enjoy all they have to offer.

Wow, that is a hard one. I would want to split the money to all!!! But, if I can only pick one, it would have to be Paws. I am a HUGE animal lover and saved my 1st love of my life, Max (my cat) from an animal shelter.

What a great giveaway! I would give to PAWS since I love my two dogs and believe every animal deserves a good home.

I would choose PAWS as the organization to receive the $100 contribution. Pets have always been an important part of my life and it breaks my heart that so many are without a home. I have two lovely cats that I adopted and I'd take a pound puppy any day rather than buying a purebred.

If you select me as the winner, I will match your contribution of $100. Thanks!

I'd choose PAWS, because those dogs and cats always need more food and bedding!
