+ - Slashdot for charity (and think of the children)-> 1

Submitted by m0rphin3
m0rphin3 (461197) writes "A Norwegian bank, DnBNOR, has a special Christmas campaign going on.
For every signature they get on "the world's longest gift-label" they will donate 1 Norwegian Krone to a children's charity. They also have a webcam so you can see the label being printed.
Could we use the Slashdot effect for something good this Christmas? The Norwegian buttons and input fields are "Skip Intro", followed by "Your name" and a captcha.

Happy slashdotting!"

Could we finally see Jurassic Park become a reality, or perhaps use this for colonizing other galaxies?"

... though his invention worked superbly -- his theory was a crock of sewage from beginning to end. -- Vernor Vinge, "The Peace War"
