jabin's march madness charity pool
Whatever you choose to call it -- March Madness ... The Big Dance ... The Road to the Final Four -- there is really nothing quite like the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. And being in an office pool has become a part of the fabric of march.
But this pool is a little different.
Instead of the traditional office pool, where the victor wins money, our champion at the end of this Madness that is March gets the honor of selecting a charity to donate the entire pot. Since this pool moved to full charity mode about a decade ago, we have given more than $10,000 to some wonderful organizations, including Generation Rwanda, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, the GiveLoveFoundation, Mighty Writers of Philadelphia, and last year's winner, Partners in Health.
You can make your selections and pay your donation right here at the site (via GoFundMe), and then follow the action with updates after each round over Email, Twitter, or Facebook. If paying online doesn't float your boat, you can still do it the old fashioned way. Just send me an note to request a mailing address to send payment via check. Each bracket is $5 minimum, but remember it's for charity, so you are encouraged to give more if you can. My goal this year is $2,000 for the total donation, so I thank you in advance for your help in getting there.
Let me know here if you have any questions. Please help spread the word by inviting your friends, and let's have some fun and do some good. Enough of my yakkin', let's Dance!!!

Not that it's any of my business, but I'd rethink that outfit if I were you. I mean, people are starting to talk. Between you and me, does anyone ever read this legal stuff anyway? I'll let you in on a little secret. There is no pool. I made it up, and I'm keeping all the money. Yup, at five bucks a pop, I figure by the time the teams make it to the Final Four in San Antonio, I'll be on the beach, $25 richer. That's right, suckers, Bernie Madoff taught me everything I know. But hey, don't tell, OK? I was just kidding about the outfit.
