Help A Special Needs Organization Give Away 2,000 iPads

The Strong Family

The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is hoping to give away 2,000 iPads to children with Spinal Muscular Atrophy and other special needs. But they need your help!

GSF is a not for profit organization dedicated to ending Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA), the #1 genetic killer of young children. GSF was named after Gwendolyn, the daughter of Bill and Victoria Strong. Gwendolyn was diagnosed with the most severe form of the disease at six-months-old.

Since then the Strongs have been dedicated to raising money and awareness for SMA in the hopes of finding a cure and enhancing the lives of those with SMA. Recently they have started a program to give out 100 iPads in one year to those in need.

From 100 to 2,000

Recently GSF was selected by Chase as one of 25 nonprofits to be featured nationwide on NBC’s the American Giving Awards with an opportunity to win up to $1 Million. This is where your help is needed. The charity with the most votes will win $1 million. If they win one million dollars they will give away 2,000 iPads to children with special needs!

The Big Idea

Here Is How You Vote

1. Go to VoteForGSF.com and VOTE! You can only vote ONCE. You can only vote for ONE charity. And because this is a one-time vote, your vote and your additional outreach matter all the more! Start multiplying your vote by making sure everyone in your household votes for the GSF too.

2. Bonus VOTE for Chase Customers! The main AGA voting will take place on Facebook, but all Chase Customers with an online account may cast ONE additional vote at ChaseGiving.com. That includes those with Chase banking, credit cards, mortgages, auto loans, retirement, investing, student loans.
