Vote every morning for the WPI in the Chase Community Giving Contest
The Chase Contest starts today, and you can vote every day for 10 charities. Of course, I'm hoping we'll all just cast a vote every morning for the WPI...
First, go to this page http://www.facebook.com/ChaseCommunityGiving and 'like' it.
Then either put Whittemore Peterson in the search box, or use this link vote every morning for the WPI.
Warning if you are on a Mac, Safari doesn't like facebook apps at all, and in Firefox I had to change my security settings (Firefox-preferences-privacy-accept third party cookies). Since I usually surf in Safari, and just use Firefox for Chase and Causes, I'm not worried about the settings, but if you use Firefox all the time, don't forget to uncheck that box accepting third party cookies before you go on to commercial sites.
Here's a link to the rules http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/rules
Chase Community Giving
JPMorgan Chase has given more than $100 million to nonprofit organizations every year for the past five years, focusing on community development, education, and arts and culture. The bank strives to be a catalyst to meaningful, positive, and sustainable change within high-need neighborhoods and communities across the globe. It also supports employee efforts through matching gift and volunteer programs. Earlier this year, Chase provided over 500,000 local organizations with a national platform to promote their missions, attract new supporters, and gain visibility with more than 2 million Chase Community Giving fans.
At the end of the program, we gave away $5 million to charities all over the country, including a grand prize donation of $1 million to Invisible Children to help children in Uganda. Now, with your help, we’re ready to do it again!
If we are not a high-need community, I don't know what is!
PS: We can only vote once a day for each charity. Every day we can vote for ten different charities.
