Our #3in30lfsl contest has concluded and the results are in! Thanks to everyone who participated, and a heartfelt thank you to all of these fantastic non-profits for their tireless efforts to make our community better.
This year, the non-profits were chosen by you! We had 30 nominations this year – up from 22 options last year. With that many deserving non-profits, the money to be donated ended up spread over a larger number of charities. To help spread the love a bit, we increased our overall budget to set some minimum donations at different voting levels, rather than strictly going by exact vote count. So, here is how it ended up:
Non-profits which received over $50 based on the voting will get their actual share of the $3,000. This ended up being our top 6:
Ladysmith Main Street: $722 (4,167 votes)
Rusk County Animal Shelter: $685 (3,951 votes)
Westlake Enterprises Inc: $680 (3,923 votes)
Ladysmith Jaycees: $221 (1,278 votes)
Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School: $190 (1,094 votes)
Power House Youth Center: $85 (496 votes)
Below $50, Above $25:
Any non-profit which earned above $25 but below $50 based on the voting will receive $50.
Below $25, Above $10:
Any non-profit which earned above $10 but below $25 based on the voting will receive $25.
Any non-profit which earned below $10 based on the voting will receive $10.
Stay tuned as we deliver funds to each of the non-profits involved!
