will.i.am just announced that he is pledging a matching grant of $100,000 for the i.am Hope for Haiti cause! He will be giving $1 for every person who joins the cause and doubling every donation made. That means, if you donate $10 to Oxfam’s Haiti relief, will.i.am will donate $20!
In light of this new challenge, we’re extending the i.am Hope for Haiti fundraising contest until March 15th, at 11:59pm PST. Remember, to become a top fundraiser, you need to first invite your friends to the cause and then ask them to donate to Haiti relief. And your efforts will be doubled by will.i.am’s matching grant! Here’s how you get started:
1. Invite 20 friends to the cause. Start now by going to: http://apps.facebook.com/causes/cause_invitations/new?cause_id=434950
2. Once they join the cause, thank them and ask them to donate.
3. Let your friends know about the cause by clicking "Tell Friends" on the fundraising project. You can post about the cause to your wall and invite your friends directly to donate!
The contest is still anyone’s game. The 10th place fundraisers have only raised $25! Don't lose out on your chance to meet will.i.am and see the Black Eyed Peas in concert!
