I am so, so, so, so happy that Esther is willing to do this. I have a Maltese and was so veryRead More tempted to help out but mine (Trixie) is so incredibly jealous and territorial I could not figure out a way to make it work. Ever since receiving a link to the article from a friend I have thought of little else and I cannot tell you how relieved I am to know this story seems headed to a happy ending for one and all. YAY ESTHER!

If Catonsville Rails To Trails couln't win, then the next best project is Patapsco HeritageRead More Greenway. Congratulations to PHG! Thanks to Patch for running such a great "green" contest. It was fun.

The Kentlands Community Foundation supports and encourages volunteerism in many programs includingRead More the Go Green Group. The Go Green group educates and advocates for green practices in our small community in a BIG way. Our community leaders and volunteers make Green fashionable.

It seems unlikely that "one comment" will net $500. As Patch explains, "we'll pick aRead More comment at random and the organization gets a check. There is one shot per commenter but other commenters who support the group are welcome — so the more comments an organization receives, the better chance it has at winning. If you know of a worthy nonprofit, have it mobilize its supporters to leave comments." It actually sounds to me more like a way for Patch to boost traffic on its site so AOL can go to advertisers and Wall Street investors and say, see--it's working! To those offended by my cynicism, sorry, but when the pool of comments includes people who have commented twice, and people with unrecognizable names, the word "randomness" loses its meaning.
