Help add to Ars’ $7,000+ 2013 Charity Drive haul

We’re just dying to give you some of this awesome swag!
Kyle Orland

If you’re anything like us, you’re spending today in a warm afterglow of family, friends, presents, and about 10 pounds per capita of rich, buttery Christmas cookies. Or maybe you’re just happy about having a few days off to marathon through an epic game or TV show. In any case, we’re going to try to take advantage of those fluffy good feelings by urging you to share your joy with some deserving charities. That’ right, it’s time once again to donate to the annual Charity Drive and swag giveaway sweepstakes.

So far, this year’s drive has raised nearly $7,000 from about 130 readers. That’s nothing to sneeze at, but it’s a far cry from the more than $18,000 we had raised around this time last year, not to mention the $28,000 we raised altogether in 2012. Ars readers have set a new personal best for giving every year since we started this charity contest back in 2007. I know we can keep that tradition going this year, because I know Ars readers are some of the best, most generous tech website readers out there (I also know you all respond well to flattery).

The good news is that the current small number of entries means the odds of winning a prize from our huge pile o’ swag are better than ever right now. In fact, if no one else enters, all the current entrants are guaranteed to win one of the more than 160 prizes we have on offer this year, including tablets, books, clothes, games, and rare collectibles.
