CHERUBS Needs Your Help to Win $100,000 for CDH Research and Support

CHERUBS has been nominated for a contest to award $100,000 but we need your help!!!!

The APX Givesback Project needs your help in honoring local charities that are doing heroic work in communities across the United States. Getting involved is quick and easy. Here are the key steps to follow:

Nominate your favorite charity – Beginning May 3, 2010 Facebook users can nominate their favorite local charity. It might be a nonprofit you volunteer with or just one you feel is doing great work in helping others. If your favorite charity has already been nominated, you can endorse them on APX Givesback’s Facebook application. The top 15 charities receiving the most endorsements in each of the 5 regions through June 12th become Regional Finalists.

Vote for your favorite charity – On June 14, 2010 the real fun begins. Facebook users from all over the US and Canada will be able to vote for their top 5 charities who they feel are having the most impact in local communities. The eligible charity receiving the most votes through August 21, 2010 will be named the APX Givesback Project’s top local charity. The top overall charity will receive $100,000. But don’t worry; each of the 5 regions will also have a winner who receives a $30,000 donation.
