Charity Donation FAQ and Pool Total

Here's a copy of Dylan's post from the last charity challenge, with a total giving update as they come in:

Q: How does the Charity Challenge work?
A: For those who are new to the Charity Challenge, here's how it works:
1) You donate a bit of cash to the DVC/UWOL charity pool.
2) At the end of the video challenge, the winner of the competition chooses a charity of his/her choice.
3) We mail a check for the full amount to the charity, and make someone who needs some extra help, very, very happy for the holidays.

Q: How much has the Charity Challenge raised in the past?
A: Not including this year, we've donated $3416 to charities.

Q: How much should I donate?
A: The average donation is $20-$30. The highest was $100 (you know who you are!), but even $5 helps buy a needy family a meal or wildlife in need.

Q: I only want my money to go to a charity I like.
A: Then submit a film and win it all for your charity!

Q: Do I have to donate to the charity pool to enter a film in the competition?
A: No, you don't have to donate to the charity pool to enter. But it will make you feel good inside to do so, I promise.

Q: Can I just have the prize pool money sent to my buddy, then spend it on beer?
A: 1) We make sure all charities are real. 2) You'd never escape Lorinda's wrath.

Q: OK, I think this is a great idea, how do I donate?
A: Send a Paypal payment to us at softserveinc@hotmail.com Please mark it as a gift, or Paypal skims 3%.

Q: What if I don't have Paypal?
A: I bet you know someone who does!

Q: No, really I don't.
A: You can mail me a check and I'll add that amount to the charity pool. Email me through the forum.

Any questions? Didn't think so. If you haven't joined in the fun yet here's a link to the sign up! 4th Annual DVC/UWOL Charity Challenge Sign up!
