Ok this is certainly not technical but If you haven't heard USA Today  
is running a contest for 501(c)(3) charities via Twitter. The contest  
winner will receive a full page color ad in USA Today which has an  
estimate value of $180,400. It does not say if the ad is a one time  
deal or a complete campaign but in either case a full page can do a  
lot to raise awareness about the winning charity and it's cause.

While I am already involved helping the Boy Scouts of America, who is  
celebrating their 100th year,  with the contest; I thought it might be  
worth mentioning since we do have several BSD related 501(c)(3)  
organizations throughout the community. If you are interested you can  
read more here http://bit.ly/aq6LQn about what the BSA is doing with  
the contest.

Please forward this on to every one you know that has a twitter
