    Looks like BBM is doing a charity campaign in the UK where you get to decide where money will be donated.

    In the spirit of sharing, this Christmas were supporting four fantastic charities and were giving people in the UK the ability to decide where our donation goes.

    Spread the word by sharing with friends and family. Upload your best pic that represents you and BBM, then make sure you visit this page after Christmas Day to see if your shot has been included in our exclusive Christmas montage

    Even Stephen Fry tweeted about it (6.4 million followers):

    I am glad to see BlackBerry continuing to do some good for people.
    The charities that will benefit ( each charity will receive a minimum donation of 10,000) are:

    Age UK: Thousands of older people are dreading this Christmas. Age UK needs your help to make sure that older people don't face this winter alone.
    Crisis: Crisis is the national charity for single homeless people and dedicated to ending homelessness by delivering life changing services and campaigning for change.
    Princes Trust: The Princes Trust helps the UKs most disadvantaged young people turn their lives around. With your support, we can transform vulnerable young lives.
    Free The Children: Free The Children is an international charity and educational partner that believes in a world where all young people are free to achieve their full potential.
    On a side note, everyone keeps complaining that there is nothing in the news about BlackBerry but negativity. Here is a really good story of BlackBerry being a good corporate citizen and doing what they can to help people during this holiday season.
