Snapely incentive, that is, holiday pledges
We're getting really excited about this years snapelyholidays, and the thought occurred that the holidays are the time to give, especially to those on whom fortune has not smiled. bethbethbeth did it first with her wonderful hp_beholder exchange, pledging to donate to charity for favourite pairings or scenarios, and we've decided to follow suit.
So for snapelyholidays 2010 exchange, we will be pledging for our favourite pairings/scenarios. (And please do let us know if you want to pledge, as well!) :)
Partners in Health (one of the first in quake-ravaged Haiti, and still helping there and in other disaster-stricken or war-torn areas)
Tearfund. This UK-based group has been working in Pakistan, even before the devastating floods, and they get around the reported Taliban abuse/corruption by distributing funds directly to their members on site, in order to help the people who need it most.
Soles 4 Souls. When you walk everywhere, caring for your feet is important. Soles4Souls provide shoes for the impoverished in underdeveloped nations, and also for victims of disaster all over the world. One dollar guarantees one pair of shoes donated to someone in desperate need.
We'll be divvying up and dividing the totals between our chosen charities.
