Both Camp Quest and the Secular Student Alliance were nominated by Chase employees for the Chase Community Giving program. Here’s the deal: Chase doles out $5 million dollars to groups that were nominated. The organizations get a portion of that cash based on how many votes they get on facebook.
And what a coinky dink: everybody gets two votes.
Here’s how it works:
$250,000 to the Charity receiving the most votes;
$100,000 to the next ten runner’s-up Charity;
$50,000 to the next thirty-five runner’s–up Charity;
$20,000 to the next fifty runner’s-up Charities;
$10,000 to the next one-hundred runner’s-up Charities

You’ll be able to vote from now through the 19th, but why put it off? Go in there, click your mouse, and help send money to organizations that are teaching kids how to think and teaching them how to be activists encouraging others to think about religion (and why it sucks).
