Here are all the deatails so please take a few minutes and help some families get back into a new home:
My name is Lisa Martin and I came across your site looking for a helpful Saints blogs. I work for the St. Bernard Project and we rebuild the homes of Hurricane Katrina victims in the St. Bernard and Orleans parishes. So far, we have rebuilt 257 homes with more than 18,000 volunteers and with the help of countless donors.
We are in need of a shout out — the St. Bernard Project is a finalist in Chase Bank’s Community Giving contest on Facebook. The winner of the contest wins $1 million. We have beat out nearly 100,000 other nonprofits and are now competing against 99 others to win the grand prize. We are the only nonprofit from the Gulf Coast region, as well as the only rebuilding/Hurricane Katrina recovery organization to make it this far.
It would be tremendously helpful and amazing if (after checking us out) you shared our story with your readers/members in hopes that they will vote for us at http://bit.ly/vote4sbp. The contest is only one week long, starting Jan. 15 and ending Jan. 22. We are really hoping to win this and use the money to put 66 families back in their homes, employ 21 veterans and local underemployed individuals, and extend the hours of our Center for Wellness and Mental Health by 2,000.
