Dot com mogul John Chow is holding a new contest, giving away a whopping total of $6,000 in CASH! $1,000 will go to the winner and $5,000 will be given to the charity of his/her choice.
If I win, I would give the $5K to the Virlanie Foundation, a charity that seeks to improve the lives of impoverished Filipino children. Homeless children have become a common sight in the streets of Manila, and Virlanie Foundation aims to reach out to these children, giving them a better future. In case I win, I would put the $1K into my savings account.
The contest is being sponsored by XR.com. XR.com is a tiny url service that shortens any atrociously-long-and-needlessly-complicated URL into a short URL. Ain't that sweet?
