tip of the week- matching donations

If you haven't donated yet but are planning to, here's a couple ways to double your donation's value:

Warner Bros. will match your donation to the Red Cross if you start at this link on The Ellen DeGeneres Show webpage. From the site: "Warner Bros. Entertainment is donating $500,000 and will match your contributions up to another $500,000."

Wil Wheaton is hosting poker tournaments at PokerStars to raise money for hurricane relief. PokerStars will match the buy-ins 100% and donate the proceeds to the American Red Cross. For more info on prizes, dates, and times, check with Wil's blog and PokerStars. (I think you need to sign in to get the detailed registration and donation info at PokerStars.)

If you've already donated what you can monetarily, you can still provide support by clicking once a day at The Hunger Site. Corporate sponsors donate based on clicks received. One free click from you provides 1.1 cups of food. The site is up year-round, but currently the food is going to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. [Note: the site only registers one click per day from each computer/ISP.]
