Global Kids is an innovative youth development nonprofit that helps thousands of at-risk young people every year to learn leadership skills, serve their communities, and connect with the world around them. This year, I'm excited to learn that Global Kids is expanding beyond New York City to Washington DC to reach even more young people in need.
To that end, Global Kids is competing in the Chase Community Giving Competition on Facebook to fund their important work. Supporters simply vote for their favorite charity on Facebook via this link. The top 100 organizations will win at least $25,000 and possibly up to $500,000, depending on where they place in the contest. That kind of funding might mean Global Kids can reach hundreds more young people who deserve a chance to be global leaders.
Please take a second to vote for them at http://vote.globalkids.org and then share your vote on Facebook. Notable folks like Spike Lee and Rosario Dawson already have. Thanks!
