A few months ago I wrote about my volunteering for MANNA, a non-profit organization that feeds 750 seriously ill people 21 meals weekly. I have also written about Cyndi Dinger, the dietitian at MANNA that I work with when I do a demonstration.Â (You can go to June 2009 in the archives to read more about Cyndi and my MANNA sprout demo at The Wellness Community.)
Cyndi has asked me to post this message, so here it is:
For those of you who are facebook users (and I know who you areâ€¦ mostly), please help MANNA win a $25,000 grant from Chase Community Giving.
All you do is sign on to be a fan of Chase Community Giving and vote for MANNA.Â They are giving away a total of $5 million in grants.Â The eligible charity receiving the most votes will be awarded $1 million, the top five runners-up will receive $100,000 each and the 100 finalists, including the top winners, will be awarded $25,000 each. Additionally, a special Advisory Board led by prominent national philanthropists will allocate $1 million to the nominated charities of its choice.
Just click here:
After making your vote, you’ll be presented with plenty of ways to tell others about MANNA. Aside from adding a personal comment to the charity’s Page, you can make an update on Twitter, add a post to your profile or invite friends to access the application.
