This is why I heart my husband. Because we think the same. So here's my rant in not so fluid form...
How do you know the person that wins the money doesn't really need it? Who doesn't really need money right now anyway? 10 bucks means you only have to pay $40 out of your own pocket for gas instead of $50. 10 bucks means you can buy your mom a card and a box of chocolates to show her how much you love her. 10 bucks means you can take your girlfriend to McDonalds. And, we've already given much more than $30 to several organizations (World Vision and Campus Crusade were left off of my husband's list btw). So now we just want to give money to our friends. Sure, there are some selfish reasons behind it, like wanting people to read our blog and think it's funny and not take it too seriously, but if we have the money to give away, we can give it away to whomever or whatever we want. We could even give it to you so you could give it to the someone or something of your choosing, but you didn't leave your name so you lose.
Now I'm going camping.
