If anyone is following this thread, here is the final results of the voting.

It is absolutely wonderful and amazing how much voting can make a difference. Only the top 196 charities out of a pool of 2,500 small budget charities get donations. Awarded donations ranged from $10,000 (the bottom donation) to the first prize of $250,000. Anyone here who has worked with tiny charities know what a massive difference that their smallest prize of even $10,000 can make.

A couple of additional animal welfare charities I heard about only on the second to the last day, "Sanctuary for Haafsville" in PA and a group they work with, "Northampton County SPCA" came in at approx. #194 (only two spots from the last) and #187 (or #188, I am not sure that I counted correctly). Sanctuary barely made it to the recipient list with only two votes. That's two tiny little votes. Two people who care and click.

Just amazing.
