"We are extremely humbled that the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation (GSF) was voted by its supporters in December 2009 as one of the top 100 nonprofits out of more than 500,000 organizations in the first round of the $5M Chase Community Giving campaign on Facebook. That accomplishment would have never been possible without the passionate dedication of each and every one of us collectively working hard to get the word out about the importance of the campaign and tirelessly asking our family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues to vote for GSF. To each and every one of you and them, thank you. Together, we made it happen!
For our first round accomplishment we received a $25,000 grant from JP Morgan Chase. We promised 100% of that to Dr. Hans Keirstead's promising stem cell program at the University of California, Irvine and we proudly sent a $25,000 check directly to Dr. Keirstead's lab within days of learning we won."
On Friday the voting will begin and I will post more information on how all of you can help us. I will also be sending out emails to remind you about our cause and hoping that all of you Facebookers will vote to make it happen. I am hoping that you will forward on my email as well as post the information on your Facebook pages. Two minutes could make all the difference. Stay tuned!
On another note, if I don't seem to be doing things right on Facebook please be patient. The truth is I have no idea what I'm doing yet and don't even have a picture posted. I promise to get it all sorted... that or Mike, my very computer savvy husband will! : )
Love to you all,
PS Bill and Victoria, hope you don't mind me quoting you guys!
