Your comment on this post = $1 or $1.50 to charity.

In the spirit of sharing, and because lots of other cool people are doing it too, I'm going to donate CDN $1 to charity (most likely going into the pot at gifter.org) for every comment someone leaves on this post.

That's all you have to do. Leave a comment on this very post. It'll take you about 15 seconds and won't cost you anything. This is not a scam, and I'll post the results here once it's all done.

You know what? Let's make it even more interesting. In your comment, tell everyone a secret. It can be vague or descriptive, anonymous or not, whatever. For every secret someone tells the world in the comments on this post (one per person), I'll make it $1.50.

Once you're done, go here, here, and here and do the same thing. A few minutes of your time = $4 to charity. How does that sound?

I'll start. ;)

My secret: I hold myself back in everything I do because I'm afraid of hurting someone.

Great idea!

A secret... let's see... I can remember two times when I acted in a bully-like manner in elementary school. I regret them deeply, and understanding why it happened and what made me behave that way is no excuse.

Fun idea, to be sure!

As for secrets, I just found out that The Ethos Group (an organization Steven's helped out with -- check out www.ethoswireless.com) just received a grant for our work -- I haven't told anyone yet, so y'all are the first.

That's pretty cool Steven (the donating to charity thingie), we'll talk more about it over coffee.

 Let's see, a secret to share, for an extra donation.. hmmm... Ok, when I make Roast Beef, I make the gravy out of the juice and veggies from the actual roast, but I also add a pouch of 4 pepper sauce to the mix. My dad would shoot me if he knew (he's a purist-type chef).

I'd normally be upset, but those 4 pepper / 3 peppercorn whatever sauce mixes are really good and hard to beat. :)

As much as I'd like to redistribute another $.50 of yours (I assume the demonitation is of the commenter, ie. US?), it seems to me that a secret is no longer a secret if it's published on the internet.

Still, great idea. And ... is that Chris Nelson up there? Small world.

Oso,

It's still a secret when it's published on the Internet - it's just a secret between many more people. Don't you trust the internet user - to - internet user bond?

As for denomination, we make it a matter of principle over here not to accept American funds. :p
