    Is it going to be detrimental to the applicaton if we all write the same comments? Would it be better if our brains allow to write something different so it doesn't look contrived?

    Either way. I wrote something else myself. Just trying to make it easy for foggy brains.

    Just took care of it.
    It only took about 4 minutes of my time.
    I feel good that I started my day on a positive note.

    Thanks Jace - just voted!

    What are the rules - is it just based on number of votes per charity? And can they win lesser amounts also?

    I can't take the credit, I just spread the work done by others... ;) We are all on the same side, after all.

    Brilliant stuff, guys. Thanks cfidsurfer, camas, helen and emmanuelle, Francelle, Nielk, SpecialK82, frenchtulip, jstefi glenp and ballard.

    More info: Winners of the cash need to fulfill the following criteria:

    1. be operationally stable
    2. have a presence across the US
    3. have a clear and meaningful mission
    4. have a broad support base
    5. serve diverse audiences
    6. be a U.S. based 501c3

    Obviously, the WPI does all those things. Pandora are asking for people to nominate both Pandora and the WPI - here's their suggestion of the comment wording
    Of course, people can write their own words too.

    Thanks again, all you lovely people. Together we are strong :wink:
