7.  Lakeside School is a school that provides alternative education to students who need a smaller, more structured and nurturing therapeutic environment than your traditional public school. Every Thanksgiving, the staff donates money to provide turkey dinners to their students' families who may be struggling financially and will use the $100 towards this effort!


8.  Patty Pace would like to donate the $100 to Faithful Friends Animal Society in Wilmington, De. She is currently fostering 5 kittens that someone dumped out of their car on side of the road. Faithful Friends is providing medical care and spaying/neutering all the kittens and the only compensation they receive is the adoption fee when they are ready to go to new homes. Great idea Patty!
