    Farm education, good. Food to food bank, good. Responsibility, good.

    If I could vote for two this woulda been the other, but given the amount of financial aid available it wasn't my first pick.

    Knowing how finances work is a HUGE thing. Just look at the mess we're in. Educating the next generation about these things might just save us in our golden years.

    Giving toys and groceries to children being treated for cancer. We all know how pricey that can get. This ranked higher for me than camp for kids that have a disability but will live to next year.

    The top 10 get money so there's plenty... but I don't think a playground should be in the same category as food... prolly why I don't work for Pepsi.

    Gives hungry kids a backpack of food for the weekend when they leave school on Friday. For kids with less than apt parents this could mean the difference between having a single meal over the weekend or not. Well worth it. I've seen this program at work and think it's brilliant.

    Other good ones in this category:

    The top 10 get the money, so lots to go around.
