Did you forget to make a donation to the Ars Charity Drive before the end of 2019? Good news! You still have a few days left to give money to a good cause and get an entry into our annual Charity Drive Sweepstakes (no purchase necessary for entry).

So far, nearly 400 readers have donated over $23,000 to the latest incarnation of our charity drive. That’s already past the roughly $20,000 we raised last year but still well under the nearly $39,000 we raised in 2015’s record-setting drive. I know if our readers dig deep we can crush that record this year!

If you haven’t had a chance to give yet, follow the instructions below to get your donation counted and your entry logged for the sweepstakes. If you’ve already given, our deepest thanks from everyone at Ars.

How it works

Donating is easy. Simply donate to Child’s Play using PayPal or donate to the EFF using PayPal, credit card, or bitcoin. You can also support Child’s Play directly by picking an item from the Amazon wish list of a specific hospital on its donation page. Donate as much or as little as you feel comfortable with—every little bit helps.

Once that’s done, it’s time to register your entry in our sweepstakes. Just grab a digital copy of your receipt (a forwarded email, a screenshot, or simply a cut-and-paste of the text) and send it to ArsCharityDrive@gmail.com with your name, postal address, daytime telephone number, and email address by 11:59pm ET Monday, January 6, 2020. (One entry per person, and each person can only win up to one prize. US residents only. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. See official rules for more information, including how to enter without making a donation. Also refer to the Ars Technica privacy policy.)

We’ll then contact the winners and have them choose their prize by January 31 (choosing takes place in the order the winners are drawn).

Remember to check out the sweepstakes launch post for a list of all the potential prizes, and thanks in advance for your donation!
