Choose the charity

In 2004 MINIsOnTop raised over $1200, split between the American Make-A-Wish charity and the English Whizz Kidz charity.
In 2005 MINIsOnTop raised more than $5000 for the Kennedy-Donovan Center of Massachusetts.
In 2006 we raised over $16,000 for the Massachusetts chapter of Make-A-Wish.

Now for MINIsOnTop 2007, we need your input to choose the charity from the following shortlist:

  • Rosie’s Place, a sanctuary for poor and homeless women, offers both emergency and long-term assistance to women who have nowhere else to turn. Established in 1974, Rosie’s Place is committed to welcoming each guest with respect and unconditional love. Rosie’s Place accepts no government funds, and relies instead on committed volunteers and private supporters to accomplish its effective and innovative work.
  • Individual New England State state Make-a-Wish Foundations in yearly rotation (Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation’s mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish® experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.)
  • Autism Speaks: the goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. They are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. They are committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.
  • The Mount Washington Observatory is a private, non-profit scientific and educational institution organized under the laws of the state of New Hampshire. Its mission is to advance understanding of the natural systems that create the Earth’s weather and climate, by maintaining its mountaintop weather station, conducting research and educational programs and interpreting the heritage of the Mount Washington region.
