Making a difference in the lives of children across America is now only a click away.
“The $80,000 Vote for Education,” a contest sponsored by AT&T, allows people to vote for their favorite of three different education nonprofits: Communities In Schools, KIPP or Teach For America. Between now and February 14, visit AT&T’s Connect for Good page on Causes.com to vote for Communities In Schools.
Causes.com is the world’s largest online platform for activism and philanthropy. Since 2007, Causes has brought together 170 million members and raised $40 million for 27,000 different nonprofits.
Through its Aspire initiative, in 2010, AT&T committed $1.5 million to Communities In Schools to increase the number of school-based site coordinators who help connect at-risk students with much-needed resources, including academic support, mentoring, counseling and career development.
AT&T’s will be donating $80,000 in prizes to the three competing organizations. The nonprofit with the most votes will receive $50,000 to help young people reach their fullest potential. Vote for Communities In Schools, and share the link with your friends! And don’t forget, you can vote every day!
