In all the hustle to get Lincast out the door, I forgot to post this…

If you had $25,000 to improve Lincoln, how would you spend it? That’s the question Alltel Wireless is asking Lincolnites right now. Alltel is giving $10,000 to

But Alltel will give $25,000 to the one of those organizations that receives the most votes at Or Alltel customers can text PARK, FOOD, or HOME to 102102 to vote for the corresponding group. Voting is open through October 19.

To learn more about Habitat for Humanity, or to hear from former Cornhusker Mike Rozier, who was in town to help promote this event, check out Lincast.

Nice idea. Props to Alltel. However…

Why not give the $10,000 each to the afore-mentioned three charities, then give $5,000 each to the OTHER top 3 charities that people vote for. There are many other deserving groups (like Friendship Home) doing great work in this city that could benefit. This could open it up to others, and the ones that get the votes get some much-needed cash, and Alltel spends the same extra $15,000.

I applaud their idea anyway.
