Howdy, Fools!

This is the place for you to nominate any charity you'd like for our annual Fool Charity Drive.

In past drives, we've selected the charity and invited your donations. This year we're asking you to be more involved -- and to nominate the ones that we'll consider as we select finalists.

Here's where you can read how the process will work:

And here's where David Gardner lays out what makes a charity Foolish (i.e. what kinds of charities we're looking for):

So please -- post away your nominations here. When you nominate a charity, keep these things in mind:

1) The organization should meet the criteria outlined by David at the link above. This will be the standard by which all nominations are evaluated.

2) You want to make a good case. We'll be selecting the finalists from these nominations. And even those outfits that don't ultimately make it may still reap great rewards if you persuade other readers on the message board to look into the charity.

3) It can help your case if you explain what concrete end results Fool dollars can accomplish through the charity. For example, you might explain that for every $50,000 that the Fool drive contributes to "Clothe the Spaniels, Inc.," 1,000 cocker spaniels will be clothed.

4) Try to include contact information for the organization, such as its phone number and/or website.

Once nominations are closed, employees of the Motley Fool will select a few organizations from those nominated to be the Fool charities of the year. We'll announce the finalists by Monday, November 22.

The nomination period ends on Thursday, November 11.
