I got an email today from Josh Clauss at tuggl.com about the contest they are running for nonprofits that I wanted to share with you. Tomorrow (Tuesday 9/1/2009), beginning at 8:00am, tuggl is launching a one-day recognitions contest on tuggl.com for Denver/Boulder nonprofits. The short details are that the nonprofit that recognizes the most local business supporters on tuggl between 8:00 am and midnight tomorrow will be the recipient of a possible $500 donation and a lot of publicity for their organization.

The longer explanation is this: tuggl.com is finally launching to the public, and as part of that launch, they’re donating a dollar to a good cause in the community for every local business review completed between Wednesday, 9/2 and Friday, 9/4, up to $250. Tuggl’s friends over a Hot Press Web have agreed to match this donation, dollar-for-dollar, bringing the total projected contribution to $500. There is an additional drawing to win a $100 gift certificate to Noel Cunningham’s award-winning Strings Restaurant for the consumers doing the business reviews. Tomorrow’s nonprofit contest is to decide the organization that is the beneficiary of the donations generated from the consumer promotion as well as all the publicity that all of the businesses and consumers involved in the contest can muster – which is to say, a lot.”

Who do you know in the Denver/Boulder nonprofit community?  Can you can help spread the word?  It would be great if you could send this message out to your nonprofit network letting them know that this contest is on (which, again, does not start until tomorrow at 8 am, but ends at midnight), and letting them know that they can find out more about tuggl at: http://www.tuggl.com/about/nonprofit.

Tuggl is a web-based initiative helping individuals and local nonprofits to identify good businesses so that they receive the recognition they deserve and are able to grow. In this way, tuggl proves to local businesses that doing good is good for business.
