Chasing the Dream

MDG is on top of things this week, bringing you news of a charity campaign BEFORE it actually happens. Novel idea, huh.

You’ll want to mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 8, as the first day to vote for how Chase Community Giving should divvy up $3 million amongst 100 small*, local charities across the nation (*501(c)(3) public charities with operating expenses under $1 million). It also happens to be the day many of you get to exercise your right to vote for government officials in your local and state elections. Always a good time.

Anyway, once you “Like” Chase Giving on Facebook, you’ll be given a total of ten votes. According to the official rules, you can only use one vote per charity, but I’m sure you’ll find dozens of charities that are worthy of your choice.

The top vote getter will take home $250,000, the next four will receive $100,000, and the remaining 95 will get $25,000.
