Vote For Donors Choose In The American Express Members Project

American Express is giving away $1.5mm to the winning project and $500k to the project that comes in second. This contest ends in less than 2 days. The number of projects still in the race is now five and Donors Choose is one of them and is currently in second. If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that Donors Choose is an amazing organization that allows us to give teaching materials directly to needy public school classrooms.

You have to be a member of American Express (which means you have a card) to vote. I just voted for Donors Choose. It took all of about two minutes, but I suggest you have your amex card handy when you do it.

If you want to see all five finalists, go here. This community has visited the Donors Choose Giving Page over 500 times in the past week and a half. If we can generate a similar amount of votes in the Members Project, it will likely make a big difference.

    I voted for that exact project (i.e., help 100,000 public school kids) on Saturday through a link. Pretty neat promotion for Amex to put on. Do you know if we are allowed to vote more than once…on different days?
