Erin HarringtonLast week, we started running the 2nd Annual Pick. Click. Give. Confesional - also known as "I Confess to Pick. Click. Give." The contest encourages people to "Confess" to giving through Pick. Click. Give. runs to Tuesday, Jan 17. This year, we will randomly choose three winners from the confessions here

And we have our first winner! 

Erin Harrington of Kodiak made this confession: "I confess our new library will be getting my PFD this year."

Why did she confess? In her confession, she wrote, "Because I can make a difference."

It just so happens that Erin is also the Chairman of the Kodiak Public Library Association, the nonprofit that will receive the $500 donation from us in her name. Not only does she care about her cause, but she also volunteers to support it AND entered a contest on it's behalf.   [Read More... ]
