worth sharing…

I thought I’d post this email I received just a few minutes ago.  It’s worth a look, and could be a worth a good bit more if we act on it.

Hi Cause Contact,

We know that many causes have had a hard year, so we'd like to try 
something new to
help Ethiopian Orphan Relief that requires your participation, but is free 
and definitely easy.

iGive.com is going to attempt to donate $5,000 in just 24 hours to 
Ethiopian Orphan Relief and other causes.
For each person who joins iGive using the special link below and does just 
one web search on our 
site between now and noon Thursday, we'll give Ethiopian Orphan Relief a 

5,000 new members, $5,000.  No purchase necessary.  

Of course, if they search more (or buy something) they'll earn even more 
money for Ethiopian Orphan Relief.
Right now, we're donating $.02 per search and a bonus $5 for that first 
purchase plus the usual percentage.

Here's where you come in.  The only way Ethiopian Orphan Relief will get 
new supporters and that free $1 (or more) 
is if you invite them.  Send your friends, family, and colleagues the 
following link in an e-mail, tweet it, chirp it, do a 
Facebook posting, put up posters, shout from mountain tops (you know the 
drill) and let them know you think 
Ethiopian Orphan Relief is pretty cool and deserves their support, 
especially since it's free!  You can even just forward 
this e-mail.

This is the link:
We're really proud of our search capability, powered by Yahoo!  We've made 
tons of improvements over the 
past four months, so we want lots of people to try it out and put it to the 
test.  If they keep on searching or 
shopping after testing us out, so much the better for Ethiopian Orphan 
Relief and iGive.com.

The details:
     - Offer active between now and 11:59 a.m., December 17, 2009 (Chicago 
     - New members only (never have been an iGive member previously).  All 
the normal rules of membership, searching, and
        purchasing apply, our site has the details.
     - Once we've given away $5,000, the offer ends.

That's it.  Don't forget to try our search yourself 
(http://isearch.igive.com).  You may need to login or register first 
(personally, as an iGive member).  We sent you this e-mail because you're 
in our records as the cause contact, not as a member personally.

From our families to yours, we hope you have a great holiday season.

Think about it, and please join us--it's a pretty sweet deal!
