Vote for MECA
Best-known as MECA, the Multicultural Education and Counseling the Arts organization is a nonprofit “committed to the healthy development of underserved youth and adults through arts and cultural programming, academic excellence, support services and community building.” Among the many things they do are art education programs for high-need kids.
MECA is currently competing with four other nonprofits for their share of $100,000. The amount of Facebook votes they amass helps to determine how much funding they will receive. The more votes they get, the more money they get. Very straight-forward and easy.
You are allowed to vote once per person, from now until June 30, 2013. So vote today!
If you are like me and don’t really want to “like” a random page to vote, then do what I do for these contests: go to the voting page, like, vote, then make a note to go in a week after the contest ends (July 7th) and unlike the page. It’s not cheating; they never said I had to “like” them forever, just vote.
