It’s like Celebrity Jeopardy — but YOU’RE the celebrity. YOU HAVE THE CHANCE to earn $5,000 for your favourite charity? And it only takes 5 minutes of your time.

From now until December 20th, CanadaHelps is hosting a “Great Canadian Giving Challenge.” CanadaHelps is the only charity that promotes and secures online donations for more than 85,000 charities across Canada!

So here’s the challenge: all you need to do to win big money for your charity is take five minutes to set up a GivingPage and raise funds for your charity by encouraging family and friends to donate to your Giving Page.

In addition to all the donations generated for the charities by your family and friends, CanadaHelps is offering a total of $15,000 in prizes for charities. Nice!

Prizes will be given for two categories: 1) the GivingPages that raise the most funds, and 2) those that attract the most donors. Besides simply feeling good and gaining serious karma for helping out a charity, you’ll have chances to win an iPod Shuffle in a weekly draw just for GivingPage owners.

The contest closes on December 20, 2009 at 12 noon ET.

Which charity are you going to support!?
