Please Vote for ZCF to help win grant money from the Chase Community Giving Program to raise and educate orphans in Zambia!
ZCF, along with thousands of other charities, has been chosen to compete in the Chase Community Giving Program. Chase will divide $5,000,000 between the 196 Charities who receive the most votes. Chase customers with a Chase online account and Facebook users can vote for their favorite charity from Thursday, September 6, 2012 through Wednesday, September 19, 2012.
How Can You Vote?
Chase Customers with a Chase online account will receive two (2) votes on www.ChaseGiving.com. Each vote on www.ChaseGiving.com must be cast for a different Eligible Nominated Charity.
Facebook (www.facebook.com) users who allow “Access” to the Chase Community Giving application will receive two (2) votes on the Chase Community Giving application on Facebook. Each vote must be cast for a different Eligible Nominated Charity. You can receive “bonus” votes if you share the link with a friend on Facebook and they vote as well.
Note: If you have both an online Chase account and a Facebook account, you can vote for ZCF through both to increase your impact!
This is not only a great opportunity for ZCF to receive much needed funds to support the Chishawasha Children’s Home, but also a much needed platform to gain national attention that will highlight the impacts ZCF is having on children’s lives in Zambia.
