So for those of you who haven't heard about this by now, Chase bank is giving away 25k to charities that get the most votes on facebook. The info reads:
It can be incredibly rewarding when your vote has a local impact. Chase
is giving away $5 million to various charities and needs you to help
pick which ones. Simply vote for your favorite nonprofit and then get
friends and others on Facebook to do the same. You can select from over
500,000 charities that focus on education, healthcare, housing,
environmental issues, combating hunger, arts and culture, human
services, and animal welfare. Give your charity the recognition it
deserves and needs with Chase Community Giving.
It's a new Way Forward for giving.
See the Official Rules http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/home/rules for complete eligibility requirements.
So I thought I would include info on some organizations that I know are competing and encourage you to use some of your votes if you haven't already. If anybody has an organization that is not on this list, feel free to add it in the comment box below. Here's hoping we can all help each other. Here are my picks:
The Andrea Rizzo Foundation- This is a really great organization that provides so many great opportunities.
Fringe NYC- I have produced a few times in this festival and applaud the work they do in over 200 shows every festival
Rising Phoenix Rep- Very cool company and very cool people
The Barrow Group- A supporter of new work and a great space in Midtown!
Stella Adler studio of acting- I have produced here and worked with some great actors who came out of this school
That's who's reached out to me so far. I have 13 votes remaining so comment if you have a charity you'd like me to add my vote to.
Keep Chasing that money guys!
