Actor Hugh Jackman is giving $100,000 to someone’s favorite nonprofit group. Just tell him why in 140 characters.

The Australian film star made his offer April 14 on Twitter, the rapidly growing online social networking site. The folks at Catholic Relief Services are hoping their agency is the one that gets the cash.

Laura Durington, online community manager at CRS, says she “retweeted” Jackman’s offer to the agency’s 1,000 followers on Twitter and thousands more on Facebook asking them to take up the challenge.

“We talked about it and we laughed about it,” she told Catholic News Service. “Then we thought why not, there’s no reason not to.”

Responding to individual tweets since his offer went out, Jackman said he has been impressed with the kinds of groups being touted. He’s encouraging people to show passion in their tweets.

    So can you not participate in this unless you’re on Twitter? The above article says provides a link to post, but there’s no place to post there…

    Please consider strongly the Catholic Relief Services for your kind donation so they can continue providing services to so many

    Thanks Hugh, for your generosity. I don’t participate in any online social networking systems – so I can’t directly support your drive. Nonetheless, I applaud your initiative and will remember it with an additional contribution when the next collection for CRS is taken at my parish!
