Each year around the holiday season, GovLoop gives to organizations that share our mission to connect and improve government. Last year, we gave over $5,000 to the Federal Employee Education and Assistance Fund. In 2011, we'd love to make generous donations to the organizations below. All you have to do is click on their logo and "Awesome" a blog post and we'll give them $5. Whichever organization has the most "Awesomes" as of 12 Noon ET on December 21 will receive a bonus prize of $1,000. Have fun, take 5 seconds and help us help them!
