Help Youth Rights Win One Million Dollars!!

Written by NYRA Nov 17, 2009

The most exciting opportunity for funding NYRA has ever seen has just begun. Chase Community Giving is giving away $5 million dollars to organizations through Facebook. Best yet, unlike previous Facebook contests this contest doesn’t cost a dime to participate in, all you need to do is vote for NYRA. With so much money being given away, NYRA’s chances of winning something in this contest are extremely good. The top 100 vote getters will win $25,000, money that would go a long way toward lowering the voting age, lowering the drinking age, repealing youth curfews, defending student rights, opposing abusive behavior modification camps and otherwise enhancing the rights, respect and dignity of young people in society. Voting began on November 15 and runs until December 11. The top 100 groups will not only win $25,000 but will be entered into the second round of the contest where the top group will win $1,000,000 and five runners up will win an additional $100,000 each. Chase Community Giving’s advisory board will also give away an additional $1,000,000 to worthy causes that participated in the challenge. It is absolutely essential that you spread the word as widely as you can and tell all your friends on Facebook to vote for NYRA. If everyone votes and everyone does their part we are confident we can at least win $25,000. Please vote right away!
