VAM Members Have Big Ideas - Vote for This One!

From the Norfolk Botanical Garden:

We need YOUR vote! Please help us spread the word!

Please support Norfolk Botanical Garden in the 2nd round of the Chase Community Giving Facebook contest!

Your determination put the Garden and our eagles in the Top 10 in Chase’s national 100 charities worth supporting, helping us win a $25,000.000 prize – now it’s time to take hold of that #1 spot!

From Thursday, May 19, 2011 – Wednesday, May 25, 2011, you can click to vote. One vote per person.

The charity with the most votes for their ‘Big Idea’ will be the recipient of a $500,000.00 prize!

Norfolk Botanical Garden’s ‘Big Idea’ is to capture the enthusiasm from our eagle fans all over the world and put it into a FREE educational program that would allow us to upgrade our technical capabilities and develop compelling stories, online learning resources, printed materials, videos, images, benchmark-driven educational curricula, demonstrations and other multimedia resources and make them available to our viewers!

This educational program, ‘Without Boundaries - Wild Eagle Encounters,’ will help our wild eagles soar into homes and schools around the world sharing our message of environmental stewardship!

Please vote and help us spread the word!

Together we can reach new heights as we work together to promote our wild eagles, plants and the environment through our beautiful gardens and educational programs.
