On Thanksgiving, I announced that Consumerism Commentary would match charitable donations through December 11, 2010 with a donation to Médecins Sans Frontières up to $5,000. Word is spreading, and other bloggers are interested in participating as well.
Jackie from MoneyCrush has announced that she will match donations reported above the $5,000, raising the bar to $6,000. Consumerism Commentary will match every dollar donated up to $5,000, and MoneyCrush will match the next $1,000.
If you’re planning to give to a charitable organization at some point during the remainder of the year, consider doing it during this matching period. Again, donate to your favorite charity by December 11 and forward a copy of the receipt to the email address charity at this domain name (consumerismcommentary.com) by December 14.
Throughout the matching period, I’ll update the original article with our progress.
