A grassroots feminist organization could be the lucky winner of the first Social Media Smackdown for Charity. The Smackdown challenges nine celebrity teams to raise the most money for their chosen charities via social media sites and blogs.
Actress Brea Grant (Heroes, Friday Night Lights) is teaming up with Girls Rock Camp Austin to support young women artists--but the competition ends Thursday, and Team Brea is currently in fourth place, with High School Musical's Corbin Bleu in the lead.
Today, Paypal announced that it will donate an additional $5,000 to the winning team.
"An extra $5000 would send fourteen girls to camp who might not otherwise be able to afford it," says Emily Marks, Director of GRCA. "We have an extensive scholarship program and we believe strongly that girls should have equal opportunities to rock, regardless of background, ability or what's in their parents' bank account."
