Calling all Browncoats and Doers of Good Deeds. Can't Stop the Serenity wants your help for their latest plan for raising money for Equality Now (it won't cost you anything).

Equality Now wasn't in the drop down list so had to enter them. It asks for City and state which a comment on the main page said should be New York, New York.
Does someone want to confirm this?
I'm sure it's the correct one to use, zz9 - Equality Now's contact page has their three addresses, but only one in the U.S. - New York, New York - and per the contest rules, the nominated/winning charities have to be located in the U.S.
Thanks QG. My entry wasn't wasted then!
NY NY is where all the stuff gets sent from for the CSTS events, so I'm sure that'll be fine. It's also where I mailed our 2007 cheque.
Yes guys, you should use New York, NY. :) Amanda Sullivan should be the contact person. Thanks everyone for voting - it's for a great cause.

Mmmmmm cookies.

This is pretty shiny! I hope everyone here can spare the extra couple minutes to vote! What's even more awesome is I'm one of those weird people that has upwards of six email addresses, so I'll be voting several times. I'm even tempted to open a few more...
I noticed that the post Ivalaine made earlier about this was deleted, so I thought I'd just write about it in the original thread.

Apparently - but it seems sorta unlikely to me - Equality Now hasn't gotten even 500 votes in this contest. The top 50 charities are posted, and the bottom number of votes is 490. (It has been added to the the pull-down menu, however, making it easier to vote for it.)

I know not many folks commented in this thread, but I would've thought it would've spread farther and faster than this on twitter and other networks. When I noticed this morning that Equality Now hadn't made the cut, folks were kind enough to retweet this and I hope some more peeps went to the site and voted. It would be FREE money for them with almost no effort on our part whatsoever.

However, I have to say that given how many people I personally know did vote, I find it surprising, to say the least, that it's not in the top 50, beating out 490 votes. (I happen to be able to - let's say - vouch for 8 votes myself.)

I'm not saying that it's necessarily likely that Equality Now would win - it appears that this contest has generated a lot of online non-profit activity - I'm just saying I think it's damn odd they haven't gotten 500 votes in roughly two weeks.

It's curious to say the least.

Anyhoo, please - tell people to go here and vote - from now until October 15th. It's EASY - and it's F-R-E-E M-O-N-E-Y. It's just too good to pass up trying.
