WPI NEEDS YOUR HELP TO SECURE FUNDS!!!

PLEASE HELP WPI HELP MILLIONS!

As you may know, Chase International recently created the Chase Community Giving program enabling participants to determine which small US non-profits will receive donations of more than $5 million from Chases philanthropy funds. The top 100 eligible organizations with the most votes earn $25,000 during Round One. During Round Two, the top eligible charity earns $500,000 and the remaining 99 earn anywhere from $20,000 to $400,000.

IT IS UP TO US TO GARNER ENOUGH VOTES SO THAT WPI CAN BE ONE OF THE WINNING ORGANIZATIONS

You have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference for the future of the WPI! The first round of the program begins April 21. Now is the time to spread the word about this opportunity and encourage your friends and family to support this great cause. Winning a portion of these funds will help WPI further its mission to bring discovery, knowledge, and effective treatments to patients with neuro-immune diseases.

It is more important now than ever that we take advantage of the amazing opportunity this program presents to WPI and the millions of people suffering around the world. Beginning Thursday, April 21, PLEASE log on to Chase Community Giving at http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving and cast your vote.

YOU DECIDE WHAT MATTERS AND EVERY VOTE COUNTS!

    This is a much easier contest than the Pepsi Refresh Contest in which voters vote daily. With the Chase Contest, you are given 10 votes to use in Round One--only one vote per nonprofit. In round Two you are given five votes--again only one vote per nonprofit.

    WPI is definitely non-profit. Last time they were focusing on small organizations.

    Make sure the WPI meets their criteria. Is WPI non profit?

    Last year I think it was there was something like this and the WPI after people got voting.. we found out didnt fit the criteria and was pulled.

    If it doesnt it criteria.. the community should think of another CFS org which does and try to get everyone voting on that one.
