GovLoop 2011 Charity Challenge: Young Government Leaders (YGL)

GovLoop is committed to giving back to the government community. Just before Thanksgiving, we wrapped up our 2011 Graduate Public Service Scholarship contest where we awarded $5,000 to three graduate students. Then we handed out 500 free lunches and held a scavenger hunt that rewarded 100 gift cards to public employees across the country to mark our 50,000-member milestone. Hot on the heels of those initiatives, we’re hoping you can help us spread even more holiday cheer to two worthy organizations that serve the government community – Federally Employed Women (FEW) and Young Government Leaders (YGL).

All you have to do is “Awesome” this post and we’ll give $5 to YGL.

Five seconds for you, $5 for them – easy, elegant.

ALSO: The organization with the most “Awesomes” between now and 12 Noon ET on December 21 will receive a bonus of $1,000! Help them win: tell your colleagues. Details on sharing are below.
