Clay Aiken - It's All About Inclusion

Clay Aiken fans are spreading the word about Inclusion Project fundraisers happening now until Christmas.

graphic by LoveClaysVoice

One of the projects is America's Giving Challenge. Clay Aiken fans across the Nation are having a major drive for the weekend of Oct. 30/31.

This is all treats--no tricks!

Here are the details for the America's Giving Challenge as well as another
popular fundraiser - Deck the Halls.

Trick or Treat for National Inclusion Project Oct. 30-31

w/ donation to (link) America's Giving Challenge

This fundraiser offers two ways to win - a daily win, and a contest win.

The daily win is based on number of unique donations per day between 3:00 pm and 2:59 pm.

What is a unique donation you ask...that means one donation per person per day is counted towards that day's total number of donations!

The minimum donation is $10.00.

If you plan to donate more than $10.00, it would be best to spread it out over different days instead of all at once, as it would mean a vote for each day that you donate, and help us to win more of the daily challenges.

You can donate either through Facebook ... or without Facebook.

You don't have to be a Facebook member to donate!
-- go to:
National Inclusion Project-Causes-non member
and click the National Inclusion Project on the page,
their page will open and you can donate there,
you can use this direct link to the National Inclusion Project for America's giving challenge at:
National Inclusion Project-Causes-Facebook
and press the green "donate" and there will be an option
to "connect with Facebook" or "Donate without Facebook"

About-America's Giving Challenge

America's Giving Challenge

America’s Giving Challenge, also referred to as the “Giving Challenge” or just the “Challenge,” is a 30-day national competition that encourages people to leverage their personal networks and online social media to help win cash awards that will total $170,000 on behalf of their favorite nonprofit. Participants in America’s Giving Challenge will compete for daily and overall cash awards based on the number of donations generated for a cause, not dollars raised. Awards will be given to the nonprofit beneficiaries of the causes that garner the highest number of unique daily donations* between 3:00 p.m. EDT October 7,2009, and 2:59pm EST on November 6, 2009.


$50,000 will be awarded to the cause with the highest total number of unique daily donations over the 30 days of the Challenge. $25,000 will be awarded to the cause with the next highest total number of unique daily donations over the 30 days of the Challenge. $10,000 will be awarded to the next five causes with the highest total number of unique daily donations over the 30 days of the Challenge. There will also be two daily awards every day of the Challenge: $1,000 to the cause with the most unique donations that day and $500 to the cause with the second highest number of unique donations that day. (Daily awards begin at 3:00pm ET and run through 2:59pm ET the following day.)

Clay Aiken Gala Lovin'

Today's blog features Clay Aiken graphics, a new music video recap of Clay's Champions Gala of the past weekend by SueReu , and more. Enjoy!!

Drinking From My Saucer

I’ve never made a fortune And it’s probably too late now.

But I don’t worry about that much, I’m happy anyhow.

And as I go along life’s way, I’m reaping better than I sowed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, “Cause my cup has overflowed.

I don’t have a lot of riches, And sometimes the going’s tough.

But I’ve got loved ones around me, And that makes me rich enough.

I thank God for his blessings, And the mercies he’s bestowed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

I remember times when things went wrong, My faith wore somewhat thin.

But all at once the dark clouds broke, And the sun peeped through again.

So God, helped me not to gripe About the tough rows that I’ve hoed.

I’m drinking from my saucer, ‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

If God gives me strength and courage When the way grows steep and rough, I’ll not ask for other blessings, I’m already blessed enough.

And may I never be too busy To help others bear their loads.

Then I’ll keep drinking from my saucer,

‘Cause my cup has overflowed.

Thanks to luvtigr for sharing this :)
