$2,500 prize for your favorite non-profit

Sunday, July 18, 2010

Senator Darlene Fairley is offering an award of $2,500 for a 501(c)3 non-profit and all you have to do is tell her why you think your favorite non-profit should be the recipient.

Just send an email to Tips@ShorelineAreaNews.com. Name your favorite non-profit organization and explain why you think they should have the money. The organization can be anywhere in the world and it is all right if you are affiliated with the organization.

Senator Fairley wants to be very clear that this is completely subjective. She is the only judge and will be making her decision based on your comments when you nominate an organization.

The money is from her campaign fund, which she no longer needs as she is retiring from the state senate at the end of her term in January 2011. Legally, she can do any of three things with the money: give it back to the donors, give it to a political organization, give it to a 501(c)3.

Nominations will be accepted until the end of August. Sign your email with your name, city of residence, and contact information.

What a GREAT idea, Senator! I can't think of a better way to disperse your unneeded campaign funds. And I hope you enjoy your retirement from the Senate.

I sent in my e-mail. And indeed, enjoy your retirement. I'm happy to see someone do something awesome with extra funds like this. :3

You will be sorely missed.
