Last Day to Vote!!!!

January 22, 2010

So I know I posted about this a few days ago, but today is the last day you can vote for the National Autism Association to win one of the $1-million prizes being given away through Chase Community Giving. There are 100 charities that people can vote on and the NAA is the only autism-related one. The top 5 vote getters will receive a $1-million prize. Just think how many families the NAA could help and what kind of resources they could provide with that kind of money. I’ve been impressed to see how many other autism organizations are throwing their support behind the NAA to win this. Usually it doesn’t seem like all these autism organizations get along too well, but this seems to be one instance where they’re all helping each other out.

So if you have a Facebook account, it only takes a few seconds to cast your vote here. And if you don’t use Facebook…what are you waiting for? Everybody else is on it. Just think…you can reconnect with family & friends and cast your vote!!!

Here’s the info that the NAA just sent out about this. Again, just go here and you’ll be able to cast your vote!!!!

Vote to raise money for NAA

January 15, 2010

There’s a contest going on now on Facebook where you can vote for a charity to receive $1-million. The only autism related charity is the National Autism Association. Here’s the details that the NAA posted….

“Dear Think Autism friends,

Last month your votes put the National Autism Association into Round 2 of Chase Community Giving – voting is now underway for $1,000,000!

Autism is a national health emergency, now affecting 1 in 110 children in the US, yet resources for families remain scarce and under-funded. On a very modest budget, NAA’s programs provide REAL help and hope to families affected by Autism. One million dollars is not a drop in the bucket for our organization, it is a game-changer and will allow us to significantly expand our programs.

NAA is the only autism organization in the running and we need your help! Please take a minute to cast your vote for NAA today. You can make a huge difference!
