Grassroot Soccer was recently selected as one of 25 charities to compete for the Chase American Giving Awards.  GRS is competing among five charities in the Educators & Mentors category.  The non-profit that receives the most votes on Facebook in each category in Round 1 (Sept. 28 – Oct. 5) moves on to Round 2 and will win between $125k-$1M.  This funding could make a big impact toward Grassroot Soccer’s goal of educating 1 million African youth in life-saving HIV education, and empowering them with skills and knowledge to mobilize their communities against the spread of AIDS.

Voting is open Noon EST Sept. 28 – Noon EST Oct. 5 on Facebook.  To move on, GRS will need as many votes as possible.  YOUR vote can really make a difference. It only takes a minute and your vote can make a big impact in the fight against AIDS.
