Help 2 Small Charities Achieve BIG Dreams!

Chase Community Giving launched its newest grant campaign, today. Voting is FREE and done through Facebook. Here's how it works:

  • Sign in with your Facebook account. (If you don't have a Facebook account, you can open one from here, choosing "skip" on all the information pages, until your account is activated -- only takes a few minutes.)
  • Go to the Chase Community Giving Facebook page.
  • Like their page. You are now eligible to cast one vote each for two different charities. We would like to be one of them.
  • Click here to vote for Love Your Pet Expo Sanctuary, inc. (You must "allow" their app and log into it again from Facebook -- confusing, but easily done from this screen.)
  • When you have cast your vote for us, please scroll down below the votes to another "like" button. This one puts a voting box in your FB account. If any of your friends vote from that button, you get an extra vote.
  • Now you can go back to the list and choose another small charity for your second vote. This is a rare opportunity for small nonprofits to get much-needing funding.
The best part of this program is that it gives us a chance to help each other without spending any money. The whole thing only takes a few minutes, but early mornings and late nights work best. During peak hours, this program overloads Facebook's resources, which can be very frustrating.

While you're waiting to vote, here are some listings from OLA, for unusual banks, so you can start saving up for the next charity event that might require a donation.

Cute Poodle Penny Bank

Large Elephant Bank

Duck Bank

Shar-Pei Dog Bank

Is it a coincidence that all of these banks have an animal theme and I'm promoting an animal sanctuary? Nope! This whole article is a shameless promotion for a small nonprofit that gives forever homes to blind animals. Here is our Facebook page, our website, and our Twitter account. Please like, view, and follow. Your support is greatly appreciated.
