Finding Fearless: Help CAASE Win $10K This Week




We need your help! More specifically, we need your clicks and your social media charisma. You've got it, trust us:

What’s Happening?
CAASE has a real chance of doubling a $10,000 grant we received from the Finding Fearless campaign through the Case Foundation (no affiliation to CAASE).

Why does this matter?
Our executive director, Rachel Durchslag, applied and WON a $10,000 grant to support our prevention curriculum for young men in high school. Now, there’s a contest for us to win a $10K bonus grant, money that would help us continue our work with young men in high school.

Sometimes voting in social media campaigns feel like a shot in the dark, but this one is different. There are only 20 organizations competing, and we’re already in the top 10.

How can I help?
Vote for us via Facebook. Go to the Finding Fearless page and vote for Ending Sexual Exploitation for the $10,000 bonus grant. Make sure that you submit your ballot—it’s sort of tricky, you have to “confirm ballot.” If you’re a little compulsive, like me, you can try voting again. It should give you a message that you’ve already voted, which means that your vote counted.

Or, vote via email. If you’re signing in via email, you need to take some extra steps to make sure your vote is counted. After you submit your vote, you will get a confirmation email from the Case Foundation. You must REPLY to this email for your vote to count.

You can only vote once in this contest.

How can I spread the word?
Here are some messages you can post to Twitter or Facebook:

Facebook
The Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation has the chance to win a $10K bonus grant through the Finding Fearless campaign. This money will help support their prevention curriculum for young men in high school. They’re in the top 10 and need a boost, will you take a minute to vote for them, and share this if you feel like it? Thanks! https://www.facebook.com/casefoundation/app_467687463264055

Hello,

I'm writing because an organization I support, the Chicago Alliance Against Sexual Exploitation, has a real chance of winning a $10,000 bonus grant through the Finding Fearless campaign this week. These funds would help their prevention curriculum for young men in high school--teaching them about the realities of the sex trade and empowering them to be allies in the movement to end violence against women.

Would you take 5 minutes and vote for them today?

Vote via Facebook. Go to the Finding Fearless page and nominate Ending Sexual Exploitation for the $10,000 bonus grant. Make sure that you submit your ballot and it is counted--you have to “confirm ballot.”https://www.facebook.com/casefoundation/app_467687463264055

Or, vote via email. If you’re voting via email, you need to take some extra steps to make sure your vote is counted. After you submit your vote, you will get a confirmation email from the Case Foundation. You must REPLY to this email for your vote to count. Vote here. http://befearless.casefoundation.org/finding-fearless/vote
