Could you do me a favor, please?

I'm moving this to the top today to beg once again that those of you who have Facebook accounts take about 10 seconds to go help out the non-profit that my daughter works for.

Atlas Corps is a great organization which facilitates overseas fellowships for the world's rising nonprofit leaders--like a multilateral, reverse Peace Corps. They have Fellows from around the world come to the U.S. to serve and gain experience at organizations like Habitat for Humanity, the Grameen Foundation, and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The fellows then can take their experience back to their home countries to expand non-profit efforts there.

Atlas Corps has been invited to be one of 25 organizations (5 organizations in 5 categories) in the running for up to $1 million in grants in the Chase Community Giving Awards which is sponsored by JP Morgan Chase. It would be great if you could vote for them in this one-week contest that launched at noon today. There are no donations, no voting everyday--just one vote in one week.

My daughter is really excited about this organization, and a million dollar grant would mean a LOT to her organization, so it would mean a lot to us if you could take a few seconds and vote. Here's how you can help:

VOTE for Atlas Corps in the "Heroes and Leaders" category on Wed, Sept 28!
Please help out - it will only take a few seconds and you'd be helping a terrific organization.

Right now they're not doing as well as they'd like in the voting. But if each of my readers could head over there and vote for them, they'd be seriously in the running. So please, please go on over and vote for them today. If you've already done it, thank you so much.

Also, if you bank or have a credit card with Chase Banking, you can vote there for them there.
