Snapster's comment should probably be noted as well (they're not making a show out of it but I think that it's a good thing):

We (Woot Inc.) doubled our haiti donation plans to $20k with a $10k donation going to Food for the Poor org.

The blog is a terrific read. Kudos to Matt Rutledge for his generous donation.

Great story. Wish I could say Woot saved me... Though I have probly helped put a few kids.woot through college with all of the stuff I've bought.

@glindagw: How about a Bag of Crap day on Woot no actual crap sent but Wooters can donate their $8 to Haiti through Woot.

@oheifearnain: Good idea! The blog includes several links for donations. There are comments regarding all sorts of fun charity bags of crap ideas, etc. However, I think that it would be simpler if we all donated the $8 that we would spend on a Bag of Crap to one of the organizations that Matt mentions.

I'm sorta with oheifearnain on this one.

I suggest that you do the order number/DJIA thing again, except this time you give the $8 of non-winners to disaster relief instead of woot-off lights.

This is really cool.

I like the idea of woot doing a day of Woot! allowing us to donate to a charity instead of buying items, it is something that could be done System wide even, including on Deals - as one of the Sponsored deals spots.

@hobbit: I like the sponsored deal spot idea. Maybe on the other sites when a deal sells out instead of leaving SOLD OUT up untill midnight.

I'm not sure how I missed this, but I'm glad I was lucky enough to see it.
I was searching for coupons from "True Value" heh..

Awesome story - too bad this can't be bumped back to the top.. I know there are a lot of Wooters who didn't see this that'd love to read it.
