    As many of you who read my blog know, I run a tech start-up in San Diego called DonorNation.org...Currently our focus is San Diego but our plan is to go national...Donornation is a platform for non-profits to raise money for their cause...

    On Donornation.org, we recently built a pretty cool, eBay style bidding engine where non-profits will be able to conduct silent auctions...to get our new platform going, my wife and I have put up for charity auction, our Las Vegas condo for 3 nights and 4 days...The winning bidder not only gets to use our condo, but even more important, will have the privilege to donate his or her winning bid to a school or non-profit in San Diego...

    If you don't have any plans for this New Year's Eve, then why not try and win this charity auction and have your own party in our Las Vegas condo…

    And should you already have plans, then you may still use our apartment anytime between December 31st and March 24th, with no blackout dates!

    We hope that you will participate in this charity event...we also encourage you to share this auction with your friends…The more the merrier!

    And should you be the winner, you will

    a) have the satisfaction of knowing that your money went to support an Diego non-profit of your choice, AND

    b) get to party for 3 nights and 4 days in the pulsating heart of Las Vegas GUILT-FREE!

    Talk about a Win-Win...

    Bid now, bid often and bid generously! Auction ends on December 26th...

    Thanks for taking the time to read this post...
