We need your assistance in helping HOBY receive $500,000 in grant money. Please take a few minutes to help.
Earlier this month, HOBY was awarded a $25,000 grant from Chase Community Giving as part of Chase’s nationwide program of supporting nonprofit organizations doing good work. With thousands of deserving organizations around the country competing for these grant dollars, we were proud to finish in the top 15.
Now, HOBY has advanced to Round 2 of the competition where we will compete for votes on Facebook with 99 other worthwhile organizations with the winner receiving an additional $500,000 grant towards accomplishing “A Big Idea”.
Our Big Idea is to create a GLOBAL YOUTH SUMMIT. It will be a weeklong event that will challenge 400 students from 50 countries to break through cultural barriers and collaborate with world leaders to find solutions to the world’s most pressing needs: poverty, hunger, racism, global warming, bullying and more. Through the power of social media, HOBY will engage tens of thousands of additional youth worldwide as they virtually meet leaders, interactively ask questions and share ideas.
Your vote can help make the Global Youth Summit a reality. Voting is being held now through May 26th. Please go on and vote today. Encourage your friends, family and co-workers to do the same. Every vote is needed. You know what great work HOBY does so please step up and help us be the winner. All you need to do now is:
It only takes a moment to make a huge different. Vote at http://www.vote.hoby.org.
Thank you, as always, for your ongoing support.
