Go Vote for the International Medical Corps

Did you know that nonprofits now compete head-to-head online for funding? The International Medical Corps is currently taking part in one such showdown, and I'm impressed with what they do: save malnourished children around the world.

Here's a quick explanation of why your vote matters:

Chosen out of 1,190 projects, “Saving the Lives of Malnourished Children” is now eligible to receive up to $1.5 million in funding. The project with the most votes receives $1.5 million, 2nd receives $500,000, 3rd $300,000, and 4th and 5th $100,000. The funding – made possible by your votes – would bring a vital lifeline to hungry and malnourished children around the world.

So, take a minute and vote. I did. You have about 72 hours.

Thank you so much for your support Ariel. International Medical Corps made the top five in the AMEX challenge! Now votes reset to zero and we have until Oct. 14 to vote again for the winner of 1.5 million. IT would go so far in helping malnourished children. Thanks again!
