Chase Bank is giving away 5 million dollars to the charities that get the most votes in their contest.  The North American Bear Center is registered.  They would love to pay off their debt as well as start a "Hope Center" to help rehabilitate abandoned and orphaned cubs.  Please vote.  I know we can make a difference with all the Lily and Hope lovers here.

This is being run through facebook, so I think you have to be a user to vote.

Just imagine how many people we could get to vote if all the facebook/Lily lovers posted a link.  It could really make a HUGE difference!!

Thanks everyone,

Sue M. and Dr. Roger's organization (Wildlife Research Institute) is also on the charity list.  Would be great if both of them could be in the top 200 that receive donations. 

VOTE for the Wildlife Research Institute:

Me again..........votes still needed! If you use all the twenty votes they allow you, you get TWO gift votes which you can send onto someone else............and if you are sent two gift votes you can use them too..........so you get to vote twice for the NABC and WRI

Even if you only vote for 5 charities, you get an extra gift vote, that you cand send to a (TT) friend and he/she can vote for the same charity twice !!
(Becky, I have sent my extra vote to you -> use it well  bear_tongue )

Only FOUR more days to vote !!!

• One charity will receive $250,000
• 4 runners-up will receive $100,000
• 195 others will receive $20,000

The North American Bear Center is currently #5 and the Wildlife Research Institute is currently #12 in list of charities! 

Thank you all for voting !!

Hugs,  :hug:

I voted twice by using my daughter's computer at her house - that's another option, if you have access to more than one computer at different locations :o)

Maria,
     I just went on the boards to check and saw the final update - YIPPEE!!!  Wish we could have raised the Research Centre into one of the top 5 spots as well, but they were right to make sure the NABC got the $100.000 and at least the Research Centre got $20,000  What a fabulous day!!
