As I previously mentioned, I was in a personal finance bloggers fantasy football league with 9 other personal finance bloggers. We started the season playing for bragging rights, but to add a little more incentive I also pledged $100 to the winner’s favorite charity. PT, from PT Money, also pledged to match the donation. Well, the results are in, and I am pleased to announce that I edged out the Prime Timers in our league’s Super Bowl.
The results for the PF Bloggers 2009 Fantasy Football League:
- Cash Money All-Stars – Cash Money Life
- Prime Timers – PT Money
- No Debt Plan – No Debt Plan
- Fighting Frugalistas – Being Frugal
- CFL Allstars – Four Pillars
- Pandas – Green Panda Treehouse
- Favre DollarFootlong – Bible Money Matters
- Debt Kid – Debt Kid
- The Ditka’s – Good Financial Cents
- remodelers – Remodeling This Life
It was a lot of fun playing in the league, and I look forward ot playing again next year – after all, I have a title to defend!
Help choose which charity receives the donation
I announced early on that if I won the league I would leave it up to the readers to choose which charity to support. I selected 5 charities to choose from – each of which is a legitimate charity and offers something unique. They are, in no particular order,
Make a Wish Foundation. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes to children with a life-threatening medical condition. Most wishes offer the child the opportunity to visit their dream location, experience new things, receive a gift, or meet their hero.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is the global leader of the breast cancer movement, and is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists. They work to bring awareness and education about breast cancer and support research for finding a cure.
Doctors without Borders. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization working in more than 60 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe. MSF provides independent, impartial assistance to those most in need.
American Red Cross. The American Red Cross helps prepare communities for emergencies and keep people safe every day thanks to caring people who support our work.
Operation Smile. Operation Smile provides free surgeries to repair cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities in children. Cleft palates make it difficult, if not impossible, for some children to eat, and in some cultures results in the children being ostracized.
