Attention ALL FACEBOOK USERS!!- Chase Giving Challenge

My journey as a fellow is in the halfway stage... but better to start documenting the journey late than never! Part of the fellowship is raising the funds for the project. But the other part is working on background and putting together ways to implement the components of the project once on the ground.

Currently, I am obsessed with fundraising. I can't stop thinking about it. One way that Think Impact is trying to raise money is by being a part of the Chase Giving Challenge, which is being run through the Facebook Causes page. Think Impact was one of the top 100 organizations who made it through round one. Round two began on Friday January 15th, and is going until Friday January 22, 2010 ending at 11:59 pm. In the last week we have been towards the bottom of the leaderboard, but in a leap of hope last night we jumped 10 places! In 7 hours we were able to matriculate 500 votes!! Think Impact's cause is a significant one! I hope that we will be able to be first place ( wins $1 Million) and if not, than at least in the top 6 (2-6 gets $100,000). This is a great way to help out a cause without having to donate a dime of your own money. If you come across this blog before Friday Jan 22nd at 11:59 pm PLEASE VOTE for us.
