A free and easy way to help your favorite charity

First slide

With Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner, it's time for the Arlington Catholic Herald's annual 'Nominate a Charity' contest.

Each year, the Catholic Herald staff picks one charity to "adopt," supporting them not only with physical or monetary needs, but also with a feature article in our newspaper and a video posted on the website in December. This year we're giving readers the opportunity to participate and share their blessings as well (we'll let you know how after the charity is chosen).

Do you know of a deserving charity? Tell us what they do and why our staff should sponsor them during the Christmas season. Nominate the charity by midnight Dec. 1 by emailing feedback@catholicherald.com. Be sure to include your name and contact information in case we have questions.

Afterward, don't forget to encourage your friends to participate, too. Raise awareness by tagging your friends and your nominee on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtag #HeraldAngels.

Thanks for your support of the Catholic Herald and generosity during the holiday season.
