Weekly Thanks

It is that time of the week again where I thank all of you because you make the site what it is. I post things everyday, but if it were not for the readers and the comments and the family like feeling, this site would be just like any other gossip site. I appreciate you.

The charity results are in and for the top 3 places it wasn't even really close.

1. ASPCA - There were many animal charities mentioned, and the animal charity with the most votes was ASPCA.

2. Doctors Without Borders

3. Oxfam

4. Here is where things got a little tricky. Many times people would say something for children but would not leave a specific charity name. Of all the children's charities, Elizabeth Glaser and Make A Wish received the most. So, what I am going to do is add another $175 to the pot and give Elizabeth Glaser and Make A Wish each $175.

I loved reading about the charities you support and love. I had never heard of many of them and that is what was great about this is the sharing and knowledge of what organizations are out there.

As always I want to thank everyone who sent in tips or videos or pictures. I read all of them, and I try to use as many as I can. I want to thank all the advertisers. I'm not sure what to say about the sex toys one except don't make any videos that could possibly wind up in the hands of your 5th grade students.

Ticket Liquidators are great when you can't find seats to a concert or event or want really great seats. A To D list is back in full swing but it will only work if you help out with the categories. Second City Style is your fashion blog headquarters. Travelatime is a great place to look for hotels and airfare for anywhere you are going. Dragon Search Marketing will get your site noticed and have great ideas to make your site better.

I hope all of you have a great weekend. Have fun and be safe.

Thanks so much to Enty and to the CDAN community. I'm just back from a fun lunch with a Hollywood publicist - part of lunch was over-priced wine - I never drink at lunch! - well, almost never - anyway, I sang the praises of this amazing site and community. Enty's voice, POV and the smart and saucy comments. Thanks to all!

Thanks to Enty and the great CDAN community 5 great charities will benefit from us. Not that the other ones were less deserving, maybe we can get them next time around.

I'm so glad to see ASPCA on here. Every time I see one of their commercials, I start crying. I would like to one day open up a huge farm for stray animals/pets. ASPCA, USO and Make-A-Wish are my favourite charities.

Thanks to all of the CDANers for your hard work and giving up some of your hard earned money to help make a difference for these five charities. CDANers are by far the best group of people with the absolute largest hearts!

Secondly, thanks for the shout out Enty. Yes, we are finally getting back in the swing of things. I'm in the middle of email discussions with a few people regarding some of your rankings. Also, plesae be on the lookout for a special post from Badfish from Winners Use Drugs.

I'm trying to put together a benefit for Pediatric Stroke Awareness due to my 2 year old daughter being a Stroke Patient.
We're hoping we can get the venue "The Note" in west chester, pa. Its somewhat a big deal bc Bam co-owns it

Thank you Enty, for being such an honest person and doing this. I contributed because I had faith that you were a man of your word, and you certainly are. Hard to find these days!!! Every charity is a great one, and Make a Wish is especially dear to me so I really appreciate the extra donation.

You rule, Enty. I'm one of those who voted for the SPCA (I'll be volunteering for them again at their annual Paws for a Cause) and the other organizations are great, too.
