Facebook voters help Chase choose EnergyTeachers.org for wind ed
Submitted by Shawn Reeves
Until July 12, 2010, facebook users can vote for EnergyTeachers.org or any IRS-recognized charity (501(c)(3)) in the USA. The 200 charities with the most votes by the end of July 12 will receive grants from Chase, the financial company providing this opportunity. Every user can vote for 20 charities once.
EnergyTeachers.org has promised to provide wind energy education kits to 100 schools across the country if it wins the $20k category. If it can garner a few hundred votes in the coming weeks, it has a good chance of winning.
See the Chase Community Giving page on facebook. Please vote for EnergyTeachers.org and 19 other charities of your choice:
