Have you ever dreamed of winning the lottery and then giving some money away to charities you believe in? The Chase Community Giving project is a lot like winning the lottery - except you don't have to buy a ticket, you can just click (http://bit.ly/jEsk7B) and vote! We had 500 votes yesterday - let's double that today.
Through these Cause walls and through my work at the National Association for Music Education, I have seen first hand the HUGE impact of school music programs - dedicated teachers, passionate, motivated students, supportive parents and school communities. It is inspiring! Keeping programs alive and strong - saving them from cuts and making sure teachers have the resources they need is important. Receiving $500,000 from Chase Community Giving is not a drop in the bucket - it is a BIG opportunity to really make a difference. Please vote (http://bit.ly/jEsk7B) today. Create an event on your Facebook wall and get your friends to vote too!
Thanks for caring and sharing your stories!
