    This is probably a stupid question, only because I have not read through the threads. Who gets the
    charitable donations? And what is it exactly used for? probably not any personal assistance for patients....?
    Inquiring minds :)

    I know if Phoenix Rising wins, they have plans for building member/patient resources here. I think it's probably in the first article announcing the contest. Each contestant probably has different purposes for the money. I'm not familiar with any that are planning on providing direct patient assistance. Good question.

    Yes, CJB, each organization determines what they would like to use the winnings for, generally based on their mission statement.

    most of the orgs have listed what they will be doing with the funds in their purpose statements (which can be read at the voting pages on the Chase FB application).

    PR is in the thread already.

    NIDA is here:

    and all the orgs are here

    the year that P.A.N.D.O.R.A. was running, some of the money did go to personal assistance for patients. Also, some of the orgs this year maintain help lines and support groups and things of that nature, although I'm not aware of them doing the types of things that Pandora does. (they could and I just don't know about that, though)

    larae,

    Possibly, if you stated what type of "personal assistance" you were looking for, either here or in a new thread, someone might be able to point you in a direction of help.
