The top 3 fundraising teams that raise the most for their cause by the end of the Challenge will win grand prize donations amounting to $75,000 from the Skoll Foundation.

-1st place wins a $40,000 donation

-2nd place wins a $20,000 donation

-3rd place wins a $15,000 donation

In addition to the grand prizes, $25,000 will be given to charities throughout the campaign as weekly Bonus Challenges that can be won by participating fundraising teams.

There will be amazing prizes during the Challenge for donors to win too.  They’re really great and you’ll definitely want to check ’em out.

Along with the cash prizes, there will be opportunities to get massive exposure for these causes on The Huffington Post including front page blog posts, tweets from Arianna, surprise shout-outs and more…
