Let's make a reluctant Barry Saunders wear a Santa suit! If readers donate $25,000 in money and goods by Dec. 17 to the charities listed in our Guide to Giving, an N&O photographer will be available to take pictures of those who come to see "Santa Saunders" at The N&O on Dec. 21. We'll post the pictures on our site.
Find the guide at bit.ly/givingguide.
At last count, readers had given $5,365. We'd like to thank Marvin Woll of Raleigh for the use of his Santa suit.
If you donate, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the amount, your name or company's name, and a phone number. Please put HOLIDAY CHALLENGE in the subject line.
You can remain anonymous, but we need to track the donations.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
