Reddit charity vote

You will need to have registered an account before Feb. 18th at 10am to vote.  You can vote for as many charities as you’d like but can only cast one vote for each.  Reddit partnered with Charity Navigator to use their large database of charities.  There are so many great causes to choose from.  I’m sure you have a few that you would like to help.  Reddit will announce the winners 48 hours after the voting ends so likely on Friday, Feb. 27th.

As you vote for your favorite charities please consider the Electronic Frontier Foundation.  The EFF is always at the forefront of fighting for our digital freedoms.  We would love to see them win an $83k donation from Reddit.  Remember to visit the Reddit donate page by Feb. 25th at 10am PST to vote.  You will need to login with your Reddit account which needs to have been registered by 10am PST on Feb. 18th.  We’ll keep an eye out for the winners and post them here so you can see if your favorite charities won.  Cheers to the Reddit team for their continued efforts.  Please share the details with your friends so they can vote as well.
