Every year, USA Weekend Magazine and the Points of Light Foundation sponsor “Make A Difference Day,” a national day of service. And to honor particularly compelling service projects, they’ve created a contest – the “Make A Difference Day All-Stars” contest for a $10,000 prize (awarded by the Gannett Foundation). You may not realize this, but Assistance League of Irvine is one of 120 Assistance League chapters across the nation. And the National Assistance League organization has been chosen as one of the finalists for this prestigious award. The winner will be selected by an on-line vote – so we need your votes to win! (More about how to vote, in a minute.)
We were selected because of our national 2013 Children’s Book Drive, in which 93 Assistance League chapters, including Assistance League of Irvine, collected 103,000 books for children in schools, foster programs, and shelters. That’s an average of 1,100 books per participating chapter!
We thank all of you who donated books to us for this book drive and helped make it such a success. NOW we’re asking all of you to VOTE for us, to help National Assistance League win the All-Star prize!
You can vote for us at: http://makeadifferenceday.com/vote-now. Voting is open from now until March 4, and is limited to ONE VOTE PER DAY.
As they used to say in the old days, vote early and often (i.e. daily). Help Assistance League win the All-Star prize!
