    We'll give Whittemore Peterson Institute a dollar for each person who joins
    iGive using the special link below and visits one
    store via iGive between noon Wednesday, February 24, 2010 (Chicago time) and
    noon Thursday, the next day.

    This is the link:
    http://www.igive.com/welcome/warm_reg_promo.cfm?m=103891

    5,000 new members, $5,000. No purchase necessary. That's 5,000 new members for
    all causes, not just
    yours, and it's only for 24 hours, so it's a bit of race.

    It can turn into more than a dollar, much more ... Right now, we're
    donating a special bonus of $5 for that first purchase plus the usual percentage.

    The details:
    - Offer active between 12:00 p.m. February 24, 2010 and 11:59 a.m.,
    February 25, 2010 (Chicago time).
    - New members only (never have been an iGive member previously). All the
    normal rules of membership, searching, and
    purchasing apply, our site has the details.
    - Once we've given away $5,000 in total, the offer ends.
    - The special link and visiting a store via iGive are necessary. No link,
    no store visit, no $1.

    Here's the whole letter if anyone wants to forward. It would still be good in future days if they sign for WPI as cause.

    Subject: Special Challenge to Help Whittemore Peterson Institute
    Date: Wed, 24 Feb 2010 16:58:05 +0000 [View Source]




    Hi Kathy,

    Since December, our special challenges have meant tens of thousands of dollars
    for the organizations listed
    at iGive, groups just like Whittemore Peterson Institute. These challenges are
    our response to the tough economic times.
    We're tremendously pleased that they're working, so we've put together another
    24 hour / $5,000 challenge.

    It requires your participation, but it is free and definitely easy.

    We'll give Whittemore Peterson Institute a dollar for each person who joins
    iGive using the special link below and visits one
    store via iGive between noon Wednesday, February 24, 2010 (Chicago time) and
    noon Thursday, the next day.

    Here's where you come in. Send your friends, family, and colleagues the
    following link in an e-mail, tweet it, do a
    Facebook posting, put up posters, shout from mountain tops (you know the drill)
    and let them know you think
    Whittemore Peterson Institute is pretty cool and deserves their support,
    especially since it's free! You can even just forward
    this e-mail. The only way Whittemore Peterson Institute will get new supporters
    and that free $1 (or more)
    is if you invite them.

    This is the link:
    http://www.igive.com/welcome/warm_reg_promo.cfm?m=103891

    5,000 new members, $5,000. No purchase necessary. That's 5,000 new members for
    all causes, not just
    yours, and it's only for 24 hours, so it's a bit of race.

    It can turn into more than a dollar, much more ... if these new members search
    or buy something at an iGive store they'll
    earn much-needed money for Whittemore Peterson Institute. Right now, we're
    donating a special bonus
    of $5 for that first purchase plus the usual percentage. Active iGive members
    raise an average of over $40
    per year for their cause.

    The details:
    - Offer active between 12:00 p.m. February 24, 2010 and 11:59 a.m.,
    February 25, 2010 (Chicago time).
    - New members only (never have been an iGive member previously). All the
    normal rules of membership, searching, and
    purchasing apply, our site has the details.
    - Once we've given away $5,000 in total, the offer ends.
    - The special link and visiting a store via iGive are necessary. No link,
    no store visit, no $1.

    That's it. We've got a new look (a real facelift) that we're interested in
    testing out, so spreading the word helps both
    Whittemore Peterson Institute and iGive. Check it out yourself at
    http://www.iGive.com . You may need to login first.

    Yours,

    Robert N. Grosshandler

    Just what I was thinking, Frank! I only saw it this moment and was all excited that it's still before noon where I am, but wondered what time zone the offer was based in... but it seems the entire $5K has already been awarded. Yay!

    $5K done, but more can be earned via searches and purchases.

    I clicked the link in the original post and got this message:
