The Wheelchair Foundation - free wheelchairs needs votes 6 - 19 Sep for grant $$

The Wheelchair Foundation is a division of Global Health and Education Foundation, a 501(c)3 charitable foundation. USA Federal Tax ID #94-3353881.

MISSION AND FAQ

Member AussieOzzie shares the following:

MY REQUEST FOR YOUR HELP

I am a Chase Bank customer and also a financial supporter of The Wheelchair Foundation of Danville, California.

Each year, Chase has a Community Giving program where they allow banking clients to nominate eligible 501(c) 3 charities to share in a $5 million pool of money to support their causes.

This year I nominated The Wheelchair Foundation and as of this moment it appears that they met the criteria to reach the voting phase; wherein Chase customers and the public can vote for their favorite charity on Facebook. The top 196 charities will receive cash grants in proportion to the number of votes they receive on Facebook; hence the need to rally as many votes as possible.

The top 196 charities will receive cash grants in proportion to the number of votes they receive on Facebook; hence the need to rally as many votes as possible.

It is my sincere hope to solicit the voting power of my fellow FlyerTalkers to vote for The Wheelchair Foundation from September 6th to 19th. Every $150 that The Wheelchair Foundation secures will provide a free all-terrain wheelchair for someone in need around the world.

I believe it is easiest to simply provide you with links to all of the relevant web pages for your review and consideration. You will find all of them below my signature.

There is no money being requested, just a couple clicks of the mouse to vote (and hopefully enable grant moneys). Simple and easy. It would also be cool if FT’ers who vote could post a reply saying yes they voted. (To vote, please use the link below - September 6 through September 19, 2012)

VOTE at Facebook Chase Community Giving page: http://www.facebook.com/ChaseCommuni...p_162065369655
Vote for the GLOBAL HEALTH AND EDUCATION FOUNDATION, of which The Wheelchair Foundation is a division.

My sincere thanks for your kind time and help.

Voting Portals Overloaded - Try Again In A Day or Two

Hello Everyone:

Thank you for your interest in supporting this great charity.

Like JDiver, I haven't been able to vote yet and can only attribute it to Chase's Giving Grant websites being overloaded with activity on Day 1 of the campaign.

Please do put this voting activity on your To Do list for a couple of days from now and check back. Hopefully all will be working properly by then.

I'll do the same and let you know if I have any success.

Thanks for your patience.

Cheers,

- AO

Boom! It's working and I voted. It costs nothing and it encourages Chase to give this worthy organization one of their grants.

I voted and allowed the link to my FB page, which I rarely do, so that I could have a 2nd vote for this organization.
