Play a quiz, give a dollar or more to the charity of your choice, and maybe win an iPad! All it takes is a moment of an ordinary day, and you can make a wee contribution to efforts to repair the world. Best of all, it's a race: we're in it with Treehugger, Neatorama and others.
When you're done, e-mail us at Play@QuizPlayDay.org and tell us how much you donated and to what cause. Don't forget to send us your quiz score. By doing so, you'll be automatically entered into a sweepstakes drawing where you could win one of 10 sets of Wii games; and a chance to go on national TV, talk about why you picked the charity, and chat about the whole quiz play day experience.
Prizing is courtesy of our sponsors over at the Game Show Network, and a randomly selected grand-prize winner will also take home a brand new Apple iPad courtesy of Neatorama.com.
So what are you waiting for? Take the quiz, play for your charity by making a donation, and don't forget that e-mail. It's all on the honor system here, so don't let us down! QuizPlayDay.org'll be keeping track of how much each blog raises each day of the week, too. You can follow the money over here. At the end of the week, the blog (or "team") that raises the most will get serious bragging rights and another, secret prize, to give to one random winner who played for their "team." So don't forget to tell us which team you played for!
