We have good news about December winner Maddie Potts Foundation, right after this quick update...
Nominate Whenever You Want
For all of you who have ever wanted to nominate a cause at Charitocracy, but was struck with the notion during some other than the first week of the month, I have some welcome news for you. For all of you who have contacted me with this feature request, I say to you years later: You were right and I've finally addressed it. For those of you who never noticed the strict first-week-of-the-month-only nomination timeframe: Nothing to see here, carry on!
It's still important to give donors an opportunity to familiarize themselves with new nominees. We want them to debut in a bright spotlight versus being buried in the noise by in-progress Top 10 or Top 3 votes. So nominations that come in after the 1st week of the month will be held in a queue until the 1st week of the next month. But you can get the nomination in as soon as you think of it. Meanwhile it gives me some extra flexibility as to when I go through the steps of "onboarding" it. Win/win!
December 2020 winner Maddie Potts Foundation
As the ball dropped on New Year's Eve we named Charitocracy's 52nd monthly winner. Congratulations to Maddie Potts Foundation, nominated by donor
Wildtreemichelle. They honor Maddie, giving back via scholarships, sports facility upgrades & opportunities for individuals with disabilities. You can find their website here.
Now you have a week to further sweeten the pot with a special one-time donation of any amount, which we'll add straight to the check we write to Maddie Potts Foundation next week. We've already gotten one big one, in fact! Keep 'em coming...
So finally please take a few minutes to get a glimpse of who Maddie was and what she represented to her teammates. Then feel good about your part in our collective $1600+ grant to help keep Maddie Mentality alive.
Have a great January (and 2021!), stay safe, and be sure to log into Charitocracy to update your votes or nominate a new cause!
