Move Mountains for Millions


This morning I received this email from the Intracranial Hypertension Research Foundation, I was elated that they won one of the small grants, but more excited that they now have a chance to win one of the larger ones I will Repost my Face Book Plea on January 15th to remind people…but above all, this is one of two conditions making my life a challenge EVERY day. I affect Chris and Lauren because while they do not suffer, they see me suffering. They know my limitations…now I was blessed with the complications, and am one of the people whom weight change doesn't seem to make a difference (not stopping me from trying though but I do it for ME, not for a disease)

 We did it!

Thanks to your heartfelt words and votes, IHRF was selected as one of the 100 top charities that will each receive a $25,000 grant from Chase and now has a chance to receive a Million Dollar Grant, following Facebook users' voting in Round One of Chase Community Giving.

In Round One, more than 1 million Facebook fans signed up for Chase Community Giving program to support over 500,000 organizations. Eligible charities included 501(c)(3) charities with an operating budget of $10 million or less, serving the general public in designated areas. Round One ended at midnight on Dec. 12 and culminated with a surge of voting in the last week

Voting for the Million Dollar Grant in Round Two begins January 15, 2010 and will last until 11:59:59 p.m. ET on January 22, 2010.

One organization will receive $1 million. Five additional organizations will receive $100,000 each. And the Advisory Board will select additional nominated charities from either round to share in another $1million!

We are so excited and hope you are, too. Thank you for your support and please help us continue to spread the word about IH and IHRF. Together, we can move mountains
