If you’ve been too busy cruising the streets of Cyberpunk 2077 to take part in this year’s Ars Technica Charity Drive sweepstakes, don’t worry. You still have time to donate to a good cause and get a chance to win your share of $5,000 worth of swag (no purchase necessary to win).

Thus far this year, more than 400 readers have donated over $23,000 to either the Electronic Frontier Foundation or Child’s Play as part of the charity drive (EFF is leading in the donation totals by about $800, FWIW). That’s getting to within spitting distance of the approximately $33,000 we raised last year and within sight of the record $38,861 we raised in 2016.

With two-and-a-half weeks left until the charity drive wraps up on January 4, I know we can reach new heights of generosity if we all dig deep for a good cause. See below for instructions on how to enter, and check out the Charity Drive kickoff post for a complete list of available prizes.

How it works

Donating is easy. Simply donate to Child’s Play using PayPal or donate to the EFF using PayPal, credit card, or Bitcoin. You can also support Child’s Play directly by picking an item from the Amazon wish list of a specific hospital on its donation page. Donate as much or as little as you feel comfortable with—every little bit helps.

Once that’s done, it’s time to register your entry in our sweepstakes. Just grab a digital copy of your receipt (a forwarded email, a screenshot, or simply a cut-and-paste of the text) and send it to ArsCharityDrive@gmail.com with your name, postal address, daytime telephone number, and email address by 11:59pm ET Monday, January 4, 2021. (One entry per person, and each person can only win up to one prize. US residents only. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. See official rules for more information, including how to enter without making a donation. Also refer to the Ars Technica privacy policy.)

We’ll then contact the winners and have them choose their prize by January 31 (choosing takes place in the order the winners are drawn). Good luck!
