Last year during the mesh ’08 after-party, we raised funds to benefit Little Geeks. We’d like to continue this effort and spread a little of the mesh love to our larger community — but before we can do that, we need your input. Ultimately, we’d like to make this a community project where we can make a difference in the lives of those who need our help most.
Here is what we’ve come up with:
1. Over the past week, we’ve been asking you what charity you’d like to support. We are asking that you tell us what organization you’d like us to choose. We realize that there are many great causes that need help raising funds and building awareness. However, to best facilitate this voting process, we have narrowed down to a few organizations that you can choose from.
Please vote on your charity of choice from the list below. We’ll name the charity selected by you at the end of this week. Submit your vote by April 1 by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or twitter @s_moore
Option A: Daily Bread Food Bank [http://www.dailybread.ca/]
Option B: Habitat for Humanity [http://habitat.ca/index.php]
Option C: Little Geeks [http://www.littlegeeks.org/]
Option D: Love of Reading [http://www.loveofreading.org]
Option E: War Child [http://www.warchild.ca/]
2. This year, we’ll open this event to the larger community in support of the charity that you helped us select. mesh09 participants can use their conference badge as a pass into the event, but if you are not joining us at mesh, please join us at:
The mesh after-party at The Mod Club (thanks to our sponsor, Social Media Group)

Thank you in advance for your support. We appreciate it, but, more important, the good that you are doing will help those who need it most.
