ASSET India Foundation has made the top 100 among hundreds of thousands of charities and is now competing for the top prize of $ 1 Million. The contest is organized by J.P Morgan/Chase Giving and people around the globe can vote for ASSET India Foundation only on Facebook.
We won Round I and and received $25,000. Round II of the voting contest starts at:
Midnight (EST) Friday, January 15th
and ends at:
Midnight (EST) on Friday, January 22nd.
ASSET will get the prize of $ 1 million by receiving the highest number of votes on Facebook with your help.
In this contest we are only seeking votes and not donations.
We have identified more than 5,000 girls who are children of sex workers and or rescued from trafficking (many of whom are HIV positive) and only 300 of them are presently able to participate in the ASSET program due to limitation of space and resources.
With the $ 1 million Prize, ASSET will expand its program to serve all the 5,000 + girls and set up centers in Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. We are working closely with the Clinton Foundation.
