The best thing I've ever done.

Of all the things I've had a chance to work on over the last 6 years, including HOTorNOT, VOTEorNOT, IsTheWorldToo.HOTorNOT, and SaveMyAss, the most rewarding thing I've done has easily been 10 over 100. It's an initiative to try and create a new standard of giving...basically trying to convince people to give more to charity and non-profit causes.

Over the last few years, I have been fortunate to be in the position to be able to give hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity. Every year as I send out checks, I wonder if I'm being crazy giving away so much of the money i've earned that year.. I'm doing great, but it's not like I work at Google or anything!

Then I just read this article and realized perhaps I should be giving more.

I really hope everyone reads this article, and then pledges to give (at least) 10 over 100. If you want to make the pledge, here is the 10 over 100 website! If you make under 100k, you can still make the pledge.

Trust me.. it feels good, and it's one of the best things you can do.. you won't regret it!
