Vote for your cause to have a Media Makeover

For the cause of the week, I want to tell you all about CommuniCause. Now originally, I was going to be all about telling you to go and vote i[2]y (which if you are a young adult w/ cancer, and you've had interaction w/ the group, you should still do!) But after reading through the website and things, I thought it was more important just to tell you that it exists. I have no problems directing my friends on who to vote for, but for us, for cancer survivors, we have all found our own groups and things that we want to support, our own causes, and they all deserve the chance at winning a $25,000 media makeover.

Rather than detail the competition, I'm just going to copy and paste what CommuniCause actually says about what they are doing (the link to vote is at the end):

Help us, help othersHelp us, help others

Each year, MindComet, the interactive agency behind the CommuniCause campaign, gives back to our community by providing non-profit organizations free-of-charge agency services and donations. In the past, we’ve worked with the Orlando History Center, Habitat for Humanity, the American Cancer Society, Race for A Cure and Toys for Tots. We’re really proud of the work we’ve done.

This year, we just couldn’t pick a favorite, so we launched CommuniCause, allowing Americans to help us select the organization to receive our pro bono social media services. We are asking America to nominate and vote for their favorite charity that they’d like to see win the grand prize of a Social Media Makeover, valued at $25,000.

A winner will be randomly selected from the top ten charities that receive the most votes. Upon awarding the winner, MindComet will provide the winner with expert consulting services to help improve their social media presence and fundraising outreach. See Legal & Terms for official rules.

So, if you have an organization that has helped you through your toughest times, shown you support, or just genuinely represents your own passions, vote here on CommuniCause and do your good deed of the week.

Thanks for the sentiment, we really appreciate it! I hope that we're able to help the winning organization take their reach to the next level, and hopefully help other organizations a little along the way.
