Hotpot Jackpot: Vote For Your Favorite Portland Non-Profit

We recently launched our second Hotpot Jackpot competition to encourage Portlanders to start rating the places they know and share them with friends. The top five raters at the end of the competition will win dinner for 10 at any restaurant in Portland, Oregon, courtesy of Google. We kicked off the contest in style at the Rose Garden last week, and users have been bringing their A-Game ever since.

Today we’d like to announce another piece of the contest. For every person who enters Hotpot Jackpot Portland, Google will donate $1 to a Portland non-profit. The non-profit will be decided by you, our users, by voting below. Voting will close January 20, 2010, and both the winning non-profit and top users will be announced on or around January 27. So get voting and start rating!

Great idea! Any chance any other charity's can get in on the vote? For example, Schoolhouse Supplies and the <a href=">"Children's Book Bank are doing amazing things in the Portland community.

Hey Eric! It was a hard choice narrowing it down to just three -- so many folks doing great things in Portland -- but this the final list. Thanks for leaving a comment!
