If you’ve been too busy playing Infinite halo to enter this year’s Ars Technica Charity Drive competition, don’t worry. You still have time to donate to a good cause for a chance to win your share of over $ 1,600 in giveaways (no purchase necessary to win).
So far this year, after just over three days, nearly 100 readers have donated nearly $ 9,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation Where Child’s play as part of the charitable campaign (Child’s Play tops donation totals of around $ 1,100, FWIW). That’s a far cry from last year’s record of over $ 58,000, but there’s still plenty of time before Charity Drive ends on January 7, 2022.
This does not mean, however, that you should postpone your donation. Do yourself and the charities involved and give now, while you think about it. Don’t let that slip away and end up resenting yourself in January for not participating.
See below for instructions on how to enter, and check out the Charity Drive launch post for a full list of available prizes.
How it works
Donating is easy. Simply donate to child’s play using PayPal or donate to EFF using PayPal, credit card or Bitcoin. You can also directly support Child’s Play by choosing an item from a specific hospital’s Amazon Wish List at his donation page. Give as much or as little as you feel comfortable with – every little bit helps.
We will then contact the winners and have them choose their prize before January 31 (the choice is made in the order of the winners’ draw). Good luck!
