Charity Lenses for Summer Sunshine Awards
Give a Hand for Charity and Humanity
Charity is often stated as beginning at home but it is probably more correct to say it begins in the heart. In my opinion it is compassion, love, human desire for goodness for others, and reaching out to those in need.
The team at Squidoo has given us a marvelous opportunity to create lenses for charity with the proceeds from each going to a nominated organisation. They have also provided a chance for organisations to receive an extra $99 by way of an award for the best lens while the lens master may also receive $99 or donate it back to the charity nominated on the lens.
This is not only exciting but a lot of fun and many have already created lenses for the contest. If you have done so please add yours to the plexos or email them to me so I can add them.

The Contest Rules
It's summer (or close enough) and we at Squidoo always enjoy a good celebration and good causes. That's why this summer, for 60 days, we're giving away $99 a day to benefit charities.
But that's not all.
The lensmaster will receive $99 too. One winning lensmaster a day, every day for 60 days, will get $99.
Finally: A way to do good AND get a little kickback for yourself too.
That's right. Build a brand new lens on a topic of your choice, set the earnings to benefit your favorite Squidoo charity partner, and if you win, you AND the charity of your choice will receive $99. Cash. Easy. Start now.
This is an official contest supported by Squidoo. Don't miss out!
