G – is for Giving

Blogging From a-Z

I love the book blogging community.  I love the memes, the comments, the events, and most importantly, the friendships.  Six years ago I started a monthly post of the movies I’d seen that month with a quick 5 word review.  I asked all of you to add your 5 words to mine so that they would be more complete.  This also happened around the time that Jason and I got serious about giving to charities, so I decided to combine the two.

When I reach 100 commenter reviews, the person who has contributed the most will choose a charity.  I’ll then send that charity $100 in that person’s name.  I exclude religious or political charities.  And after that is done we start all over again at 0 and work out way to the next 100.  If you are interested in seeing the past winners and charities click here.

So, we have a winner and, coincidentally, he is someone who first came by the blog during my first Blogging From A-Z Challenge years ago.  Tony Laplume is an author, check out his Amazon page and a blogger.   This morning when I checked, I saw that Tony had left 90 reviews overnight!!!  Wow!

Tony Laplume chose the Red Cross as his charity and after I post this I’ll be making a $100 donation in his name.

That means that 43 of his reviews will count toward the next 100 threshold so unless someone gets busy Tony will get to choose another charity soon!

To browse through the monthly posts (you can everyone’s reviews) click here.  To go from the master list go here.  At this point the master list is incomplete and I’ll be working on it over the weekend.

Thanks for participating everyone!  I hope I wake up tomorrow with another $100 to donate!
