Hey Everyone,

I just found out that JP Morgan Chase just kicked off their community giving charity for this year.

How it works is that you go on Facebook and vote for the charity/organization that you would like to receive funding. People have 27 days to vote and at the end of that they see which organizations got the most votes and those are the ones that will receive funding. One charity will receive $250k, 4 runners-up will receive $100k and 195 others will receive $20k.

I typed in Lyme Disease and several organizations showed up. You can vote for more than one. I am fuzzy on the details but I think you get 20 votes? The ILADS is on there as well as the Lyme Disease Association and many many more.

Here is the link. I think you have to "Like" the page first etc and then it will allow you to vote.

There are many organizations you can vote for...just type in Lyme Disease in the search and vote and you will see 5 pages or so of lyme groups you can vote for.

Let's get some Lyme Disease funding!!!

Take Care!

PS...here is the information about it on the actual JP Morgan Chase website for anyone that wanted to check into it. It is a legit contest.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like there is another way to vote. I checked to see if there was as well and it looks like it is only on Facebook.

Hopefully we can still get lots of people to vote.

Thanks for sharing...It would help if some would

jump in and tell us which ones have the most

innovative ideas and need, etc...I don't know who

to vote for there are sooo many....Do you vote for the one closest to home---or the one's you know have put a lot into it??? Etc. Etc...

What is the Lyme Disease Inst. in Sikeston,MO?

I also do not want to vote for for any associated with the IDSA....

Can anyone help sort it out???

I went to the site and "liked" it, when I click to vote, it kicks me out every time. I will keep trying, though.
