Back in December we asked the Joomlashack community to nominate their favorite charity for our contest. In eight days you sent us over 110 nominations from worthy organizations from around the world. After a fascinating, fun, and difficult evaluation process, Team Joomlashack picked these five charities as our finalists.

And the runaway winner of the contest were the children of Casa do Caminho Orphanage, with almost 50% of the vote.
