Sorry for the lack of updates over the last few days. I've been busy enjoying the sun and catching up with a small backlog of reviews over at Futurelooks. If you have a chance, head over and check out our latest reviews. It's been great to be able to just sit outside and work with a beer in hand. Anyway, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all the entries in my latest contest. But first, I'd like to dish out some special thanks to bloggers who have stepped up to help me "Make a Difference Online".
Stepping Up For A Great Cause
First off, I'd like to thank Gary Jones at BlueFur and Erin Berringer at Newport Business Media. Both of these big hearted bloggers have decided to follow me in making a difference online by matching me DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR up to $100 US during my latest contest. This means that the lucky winner of the contest will be able to wield up to $300 US to a charity of their choice AND walk away with a copy of NBA Live 2007 for the PC. Thanks again for your generosity and commitment to charity
Bloggers Helping To Make a Difference
As part of the entry rules for my contest, I've allowed entrants to double up their entries by simply telling others about my contest and pinging me back from their blog. Here are the current list of blogs that have pinged me back to help push this contest to the One Hundred Entries we need to maximize the donation:
- Gary Jones - A Challenge for Children (Thanks again Gary!)
- Erin Berringer - The Best Kind of Contest - For The Kids (Thanks again Erin!)
- Michael Kwan - Winning This Could Be Your Most Charitable Act
- Matt's Blog - Do the Right Thing, Post a Comment and Donate $3 to the BC Children’s Hospital (Although I'm partial to the Children's Hospital, it's up to the Winner to Choose the Winning Charity)
- Contest Blogger - Win a cool game and $100 for charity at Stephen Fung Dot Net
Thanks again for the links and the pingbacks. You've all got double the chances to win your chance to make up to a $300 US donation to a charity of your choice. The feeling you get when you give is priceless so goodluck everyone!
I Want to Give Your Money to Charity and Win NBA Live 2007. How Do I Do it?
This is probably going to be one of the easiest contests you'll ever enter that will make a big difference to the less fortunate. All you have to do to win is just post a comment in my contest posting and you're entered. To get a double entry, all you need to do is make a post about the contest and ping me back. Easy enough?
Where Are We At So Far?
The road to 100 entries ends on July 16th and so far we are at officially 32 entries including pingbacks. That means that we still need 68 entries to make our goal. Do the right thing this week and ping me back with a link to the contest so that we can let more people know what we're trying to do. If you're lucky, I might even mention that you blogged about it like I did for the bloggers above.
A charity out there is waiting for you to make a donation and you'll get to play NBA Live 2007. Everyone wins. Nobody loses Enter Today!
