A few weeks ago, a reader emailed and suggested polling our readers on their favorite nonprofits as an afternoon comment diversion; and then, last week, the freakishly hilarious fellas over at Kissing Suzy Kolber took some time off from celebrating the size of Rex Grossman’s penis to raise some cash for Fisher House. So, upon seeing the success of their drive, we thought we’d attempt to cross-pollinate the two ideas and raise money for your favorite nonprofit (I understand that “charity” is an outdated term. I don’t know why.)

We’re not going to be pushy about it or anything, nor will we prey on the abundance of liberal guilt out there in Pajiba-land. But, as the box-office grosses during the month of September have demonstrated, there’s not a lot of movie-watching going on, and since holiday season is another month or two away, we figure that there might be a little disposable income lying around in your wallets, purses, and PayPal accounts.

So, here’s how it’s going to work: In today’s diversion, we’re only asking y’all to name your favorite nonprofit organization (and I know many of you work for them; plug away) and, after we tally up the mentions, next week we will discreetly add links on the home page and at the end of each post soliciting donations to the winning nonprofit.

And, because we want to provide some incentive for you good people to play along, we’re going to start off by contributing a $250 base to the winning organization, as long as it’s not NAMBLA. I know of no better way to amend for calling for the wholesale destruction of an entire country (sorry Korea!)

So, we put this question to you: What’s your favorite nonprofit organization? I’ll start by suggesting the unbelievably awesome Heifer International.
