Huge thanks to the more than 1,000 of you who voted on how Luckie & Company should dole out the rest of our holiday charity fund.
In case you missed it, we asked the Internet to help us choose between Puppies, Children and Creatives. The percentage of votes received by each would determine the percentage of our $6,000 donation pool that would go to a related charity.
Here's a screenshot of the final tally, followed by some hard dollar amounts:
Thanks to a strong grassroots push initiated by Jessica at Dogingham, the Greater Birmingham Humane Society will receive a $3,780 donation from Luckie.
While they didn't quite pull like the puppies, children still came in second, netting $1,320 for Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of Alabama. This is a fantastic organization that supports victims of child abuse when they need it most.
No, we're not really giving the money to our Creative staff. They'd just waste it on ironic T-shirts and Widespread Panic tickets. Instead, we'll be donating $900 to Pre-School Partners, a Birmingham organization that teaches creative skills to at-risk kids.
Thanks again to all who participated! We'll be connecting with these organizations soon to hand out the cash and give them a bit of a financial boost for 2011.
