    Thumbs up Chase Charity Giveaway - Hurry

    Chase (JP Morgan-Chase to be official I guess) is holding a contest through Facebook with people voting for funding. There will be 100 $25k prizes and 5 $1mil prizes. Or donations as the case may be. They say that 500,000 charities are already in their database which was compiled from IRS records on 501c3 organizations with less than $10million in their latest filing to the IRS. Which should be just about everyone but the largest career departments.

    Facebook page is: http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommun...9&jp_avt=35813

    In case you don't find your department here's the form to submit it for inclusion: http://survey.chase.com/wix/p32683536.aspx

    Only caveat here is your department must be a 501c3, not a c4 or c7.

    To vote you have to be on Facebook, and each person only gets 20 votes. Voting is until December 11th.

    Good luck - Brian

    Is there a "send fire chiefs to grant seminars" charity I can vote for?

    I'll be glad to give one to Jamaica in trade for one to the Ozark Gateway Fire Chiefs Association.

    And it has begun...


    edited to add: I don't think I ever realized until I looked at the map on you guys' page, but you're pretty close to where my family is from in Iowa (Fonda/Pomeroy area).

    Gotcha your back and voted. Yes Fonda/Pomeroy Is north of me.

    My wife would love to move to Eureka Springs or somewhere in the area.
    I think it because it closer to Walmart As she loves to spend.

    We went down there for vacation a couple of years ago and she still talks about it.

    Everyone may as well list their favorite charity at this point. 20 votes goes a ways.

    I'll give someone all 20 of my votes in exchange for a 50% cut in the winnings.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.
