Charlie O'Donnell [with a nod from Fred Wilson] has an interesting take on the tried and true Super Bowl office pool going, and it's for a good cause. He's set up a wiki called 100 Bloggers, 100 Boxes with the goal of getting 100 bloggers to fork over $10 each in the name of their favorite charity.
Goal: Get 100 different bloggers to sponsor 100 different Superbowl boxes, with the winnings going to their charities of choice. Please tag/digg/link to this so that we can ensure that we fill these out by the end of the week.
It's a pretty simple concept...fill in your information on the wiki, Paypal Charlie your $10, and then check back to see which numbers you get for the Super Bowl. The payouts are typical of these types of pools:
- 10% to 1st Quarter Winner
- 25% to Halftime Winner
- 15% to 3rd Quarter Winner
- 50% to Final Score (If game goes into OT, Final Score is final at end of game)
At the very least, you get to expose a worthwhile charity to 99 other bloggers and their readership. I'm throwing my hat (and $10) into the ring for the National Association for Gifted Children.
