If you haven’t yet had a chance, please take a moment to cast a vote (or two!) in the final days of Tom’s “50 States for Good” initiative. Click here now and vote for an organization you care about – whether the cause is close to your heart or the organization is located near your hometown. As the manager of Yahoo! for Good, my company’s Social Responsibility department, I lead Yahoo!’s online cause marketing initiatives so I was excited when Tom’s of Maine asked me to be a judge for this year’s program. I, along with four other judges in the non-profit space, evaluated 60 different organizations, helping to determine the Top 41, which are now being voted on by the public. When voting closes on September 10, five non-profits will each receive $20,000 in funding that they’ll use to complete important grassroots projects and provide communities with valuable services. With causes ranging from greening urban spaces to animal rights to youth-focused projects, it can be a tough choice, but collectively, I’m sure we’ll make the right one!
Tom’s of Maine is also giving away 40 $100 Good Cards®, a gift card for charity that can be redeemed as a donation to more than 1.2 million organizations through Network for Good. When you vote for your favorite finalist, you can opt in to the random drawing. The 40 charity gift card winners will be notified after voting closes. So what are you waiting for? It’s all for good!
