It's the final countdown! De-ne-ne-naaaah! De-na-nee-nah-naaaaaah! (Yes, I am typing out the keyboard part for "The Final Countdown." Because I am a nerd.)
Tomorrow is May 1, which is when the big prize drawings will occur. We're up to $1,870 donated to our Giving Page, and the checkout code MACLIFE (which matches all donations up to $100) has been used to match more than $8,000 of giving around the whole site.
To enter to win a prize, forward me (susie at maclife dot com) your receipt before 9am tomorrow, May 1 (that's 9am Pacific Time, or 10am Mountain, 11am Central, and noon Eastern). That's when I'll do the drawings.
Everyone who enters is eligible for the Big Honkin' Prize Pool™. I've got a pair of Spark headphones, a Smart Blood Pressure monitor, a 30GB SugarSync account, some cool Mac software including Disk Art by Clean Cut Code, a Helo TC from Griffin Technology, Fling Mini controllers from Ten One Design, the VooMate Zapper from Zero1, a Sound to Go speaker from Edifier, and a BiKN for iPhone from Treehouse Labs. Yeah, that is a lot of prizes, and YES, I copied and pasted that whole list from Friday's post. (It's simply too many prizes to type out again, you dig?)
You want this. You do.
And our two bonus prizes are still in effect:
Donate to First Graders Love to Read, and you'll be entered in a second drawing for a $25 iTunes Store gift card -- which works in the Mac App Store, the iOS App Store, the iBookstore, and the regular ol' iTunes Store.
Donate to Get Your Game On and you'll be entered in a second drawing for Mac App Store codes for Quake 4 and Company of Heroes, two kick-butt Aspyr games. Five people will win codes for both games, which retail for $19.99 and $49.99, respectively, so respectfully? You should enter.
To everyone who's already donated so far, thank you so much. Raising money for DonorsChoose is the most rewarding part of my job, and I hope we can do another drive this fall, when a new school year starts. Thanks for using the match code MACLIFE, thanks for telling your friends, and thanks for being a hero to public school teachers and students.
If you haven't donated yet, LAST CHANCE FOR BIG PRIZES! Go to our Giving Page, find a project that speaks to you, and don't forget the MACLIFE match code when you check out. DonorsChoose is an easy site to use -- it shouldn't take longer than a couple minutes. You'll feel like such a winner all day.
