March Gladness is back

UPDATED: Bracket released.


Episcopalians for Global Reconciliation’s 2010 installment of March Gladness is ready to roll out.

March Gladness combines two of our favorite things — Making Poverty History and the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Here’s how it works. Like your regular NCAA pool, you fill out your tournament bracket — picking each game in the field of 65 right up to the championship game. Like your regular pool it costs a little to get in. Like your regular pool, the people who do the best picking the games win the pot.

…with this great catch:

*Instead of the winners taking home the pot, all money raised will be given to the designated MDG-related organizations. [Your org of choice has to be a registered 501(c)3 -ed.]

*At the end of the tournament, all money donated will be given to MDG-related nonprofits with the following distribution:

1st place – 50%

2nd place – 25%

3rd place – 15%

4th place – 10%

To opt in for play, mark yourself as “attending” on the March Gladness Facebook event page. Instructions will follow.
