CultureMap Charity Challenge

With only three days left to vote in the CultureMap Charity Challenge, two charities have become the clear front runners — Salvation Army of Greater Houston with 20 percent of votes and VICTORY Houston with 30 percent. If your favorite charity isn't one of those two, you had better get voting as there's still enough time for any of the charities to make a comeback with your support, and if you have been voting for one of the two front runners, keep up the good work and continue submitting your votes.

Every vote counts and each could be the one needed to help your favorite charity win the CultureMap Charity Challenge.

You can continue to vote every day, once a day, until Dec. 20, by clicking here.

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

The full list of charities includes:

So don't forget to vote each day for the next three days. Your favorite charity needs the support.
