The $200,000 grant
offered by American Express and TakePart (“an independent online community that connects its members directly to the issues that inspire them to engage, contribute and take action”) is still on the table, and Audubon needs your help to earn it.
You’ve been some of the biggest supporters of Audubon’s work along the Gulf Coast, both before and during this crisis. Here’s a free way to give the organization a means to continue its crucial role. Every three months, the groups above will pay out $200,000 each to five different charities, one from each category:
1. Environment and wildlife
2. Arts and culture
3. Community development
5. Health and wellness
Don’t worry if you’ve already voted. Vote again at takepart.com/membersproject/vote
! Anyone registered can do so once a week until August 22, when this round of balloting ends. Just remember that you can only click once, not once per category. (For more information, check out the FAQ page
.) Once you cast your choice, see which organization leads. Ensure Audubon takes home the top slot.
