It is our pleasure to announce that out of over 60 nominations of very worthy organizations, the following 5 have been chosen to participate in The Motley Fool's 2004 Foolanthropy Drive:

· Canine Companions for Independence www.cci.org: Enhancing the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.
· First Book www.firstbook.org: Giving children from low-income families the opportunity to read and own their first new books.
· Habitat for Humanity International www.habitat.org: Seeking to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness from the world, and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
· Heifer Project International www.heifer.org: Empowering people to lift themselves out of poverty in a sustainable way with gifts of farm animals and training.
· Spirit of America www.spiritofamerica.net: Extending the goodwill of the American people to assist those advancing freedom and peace abroad.

The list of this year's finalists encompasses a wide variety of missions and regions, in addition to meeting the Foolanthropy criteria. We hope you will find at least one to support during this season of giving!

Stay tuned to this space for updates on the drive. Also visit www.fool.com/foolanthropy to view each organization's page (available on November 22 - the kick-off for donations) and the weekly tally of Fool donations to each organization. Remember that the charity garnering the most support from the Fool community will be awarded $10,000 by The Motley Fool!

One last reminder: The Motley Fool will donate $.02 per board post for the entire month of December! That's every single post on every board for an entire month - it will really add up! The total amount will be split between the 5 charities, so pass the word & tell your fellow posters on other boards.

Have fun & we look forward to a successful drive!
Sincerely,
Wendie White
