CultureMap Charity Challenge

At CultureMap, one of the things we love most about Houston is the philanthropic spirit of its residents. In the spirit of giving this holiday season, we're hosting the first-ever CultureMap Charity Challenge. We've selected 12 charities to compete. In the CultureMap poll, an explanation of each charity's good works is provided and you can vote for your favorite.

You can vote very day, once a day, from now until Dec.  20, by clicking here.

The winning organization, announced Jan. 6, will become CultureMap's community service project for 2014. Plus, CultureMap will award the winner space on the site to tout their organization and a $2,500 cash donation.

So be sure to vote — and better yet, volunteer to help out one of these organizations or one of your choosing. It will be a great way to end the year and start 2014 off right!
