>Your Vote Could Grant GLSEN $1 Million; PLEASE VOTE NOW
>GLSEN is in consideration for the Chase Community Giving campaign, a joint venture with Facebook that will result in $5 million worth of donations to charities chosen by Facebook users.
The first round of the campaign ends this Friday, that’s just 3 days away and GLSEN needs your support! The top 100 voted organizations will be announced on December 15 and each will receive $25,000.
Those 100 organizations or charities will then advance to the next round of voting and on February 1st the finalist with the most votes will be announced and awarded $1 million. The first five runner-ups will receive $100,000 each.
While we’d love to win the million, first things first. $25,000 would go a long way toward our work to make schools safer for all students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity/expression.
$25,000 can help us support more Gay-Straight Alliances, raise awareness about the Day of Silence and encourage the passing of anti-bullying policies that truly protect all students.
Once you’ve voted, tell all of your friends, relatives and co-workers through share buttons like the one below. You can even paste the button on your personal website or blog!
Anything you can do to help spread the word will result in more votes for GLSEN and students working to end anti-LGBT bullying and harassment in schools.
*The deadline ends this Friday, December 11. Don’t be the last to vote!
