These three fantastic organizations will placed against one another to see who can walk away with the most votes. The winner gets more than bragging rights, however! They walk away with the largest amount of money—though every organization wins! Voting closes at the end of Thursday, August 31, 2023.
Contestant requires minimum 50 votes to qualify.
Voting: 1 vote per day per person.
