It's Final

As in, I am a finalist! In the Hallmark YourParenthood Father's Day Card contest. I received a phone call from Hallmark this evening notifying me that I am one of 12 finalists selected. That comes with a $250 cash prize, $250 donation to a charity of my choice, and my card will be sold in Hallmark stores and online. It will officially be announced in February and the voting will begin soon after. You better get ready to start voting because this is not the last you will hear of it. A big thank you goes to my husband for being a great father. I think I will buy 50 of these cards when they go on sale and he will get one every year for Father's Day.

I need help coming up with a charity to donate to. Please comment with a suggestion. I want the money to go to a good cause.

Here is a website that will let you search for local charities

Congrats Carrie! It is such a good picture and Eddie will be getting that card for Father's Day for sure!

I think Mike will be getting it for the rest of his life. It's a new tradition. I must win so I can get a new camera! Thanks for the tips.

You don't know me, but I stumbled across your blog. If you are looking for a good charity, you could consider Teen Challenge, it is a ministry for teens, men, and women that allows them to come to terms with their addictions while beginning/rekindling their relationship with God. It is amazing!
