Let None Go Hungry

Are you an American Express cardholder? If so, you have the chance to make a positive impact on the lives of millions with just a vote. The American Express Members Project will take your ideas and your votes and combine them with their money to fund needy and inspirational projects. You just need to tell them which of the projects you think should win.

The number of projects is currently down to 25. In seven days, the top five projects, based on your votes, will be announced. And then on October 14th, one winner will receive $1.5 million.

My personal favorite project is the International Medical Corps, "Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children". You can check them out here.

So, if you are a cardholder, I urge you to vote. At least in this race, we don't have to listen to annoying political ads :)

Thanks so much Deborah! As you may know, IMC made it to the top five! We are thrilled that at least $100,000 will be donated by AMEX to help children in need, but we are still hoping for the 1.5 mil. the vote tallies for those in the top five now start from scratch, and we have until 0ct. 14 to collect as many votes as possible. I encourage you and your readers to vote again if you can. (or feel free to re-post!)Thanks so much for your help!
