Chase Community Giving - Cast Your Vote

Chase Community Giving is 'harnessing the power of social networking to give individuals and communities a voice in corporate philanthropy.'

Our friends at GiveIndia are one of the charities that are participating in this challenge.

GiveIndia is 1 of 100 NGOs selected (globally) by Chase Foundation to compete for $1 million on Facebook. NGOs have to get Facebook users to cast a vote for them and the NGO with the highest number of votes will win the prize.

In the first round of the competition, GiveIndia got about 3,000 votes and won $25,000. But, in order to win the $1 million prize, they need all the votes they can. If they win the prize, GiveIndia plans to use the money to educate 40,000 children for a year.

Voting begins on January 15 and ends on January 22.
