Over and over we hear that it is possible to make a difference. It is possible to help your neighbor, plant a tree, save a child from starving or prevent a polar bear from dying. Sometimes in our own little world it doesn’t seem as though there is energy, money or time to make a difference, I can relate. How can I possibly stop global warming, provide a child in a third world county with clean water or change legislation for safer toys and baby care products for our kids?
American Express has joined with TakePart.com to create the Members Project ®to help make it easier, simpler and very possible for anyone and everyone to make a difference in their neighborhoods, communities and environment. When I was contacted to review the Members Project® I was skeptical that a credit card company could make a huge impact but once I registered for FREE I noticed that it was indeed easy. Easy to join, easy to vote for projects once per week that will lead to Member Project donating $200K to five causes every three months. Wow!
Here is how it works:
1. Join for FREE (I also become a Facebook Fan and tweeted to tell all my friends about the opportunity using the hashtag #AMEXMP).
2. Vote once per week for the causes American Express should fund. Members Project ®is donating $200K to five causes every three months. This quarter’s voting ends May 24, 2010.
You can choose to volunteer, share your involvement with the program to inspire and encourage others to participate and donate money or Membership Rewards points to one of each voting period’s 50 selected charities or choose from over 1 million other charities!
In honor of Earth Day 2010 I voted for the Nature Conservancy. Who will you vote for?
Why not? Great tips for free!
