I voted no. I think if we do a pot, the person that wins it can do what they please with it.. if they want to donate awesome.. if they want it to pay a bill.. great.. just should be up to the person. JMO.

I would have to discuss it with DH. I honestly don't think it would be possible though.

I voted yes but it doesn't matter to me either way. I don't even need a prize to do BL. Losing some weight is prize enough.

I voted yes... because my life has depended on charity before, and people gave to me and so I feel a responsibility to give back. I do fund raising for the Children's Hospital that my son was at, and so that is primarily my motivation. I think we're all impacted by charity in one way or another, but for me personally the significance of giving back has different meaning. Its hard to explain, but I've realize I'm going broke because of giving back. Which is all in all a great reason to go broke, but I still dont like going in the hole. So whatever we decide to do is fine... I'm just always trying to challenge people to think about how they can impact someone's life... Whether its charity or vacuuming someone's floor who is down on their back... I live my life by "it takes a village" and we're all in this together... okay, stepping down from the soap box... I apologize

maybe those of us who agree to do it online can and then those who don't feel comfortable abotu it can give to a local charity ( clothes you no lonfger want,$5 worth of groceries,etc if you don't want to do money, or something of that nature) Just don't how we'd keep up w/ who didn't do it.
