I do a fair bit of work with an online marketplace named IZEA and while browsing their forums the other day I saw a thread started by Mama Bok. In this thread she put forth the idea of us all doing something for IZEA for Christmas, as a way to say thank you for what they’ve done for all of us.
The first response was from Ann of the Homeschool Zoo blog. She suggested that we make donations to a charity in IZEAs name and everyone agreed that this was a great idea. During an impromptu online meeting between the founder of IZEA, Ted Murphy, and several of his posties, Mama Bok brought up the charity idea and asked him to pick one for us to donate to. His choice is Habitat for Humanity. If you feel so inclined, you can donate from that secure link. There’s a check box to indicate that you are donating on behalf of a company.
Of course, if you have no idea who IZEA is, you can donate anyway and fill in whatever name you’d like. If you have someone on your list that already has everything they need and want, perhaps a donation in their name would be a nice gesture, and it’s all for a good cause.
