Sal Pizarro has written again about the Facebook/Chase contest:

The last day of voting for Chase Community Giving’s Facebook competition is upon us, and Symphony Silicon Valley needs to make up a lot of ground to be one of the 25 nonprofit groups that’ll get grants.
Another South Bay organization, the Santa Clara Vanguard drum corps, is doing much better, sitting at No. 20 on Tuesday. Every Facebook user gets to vote for five groups, so you should throw some love their way, too.
The symphony, which won a $25,000 grant in the first round of voting, plans to put any money it receives in the contest toward ArtSpark — an ambitious plan to bring every third- through sixth-grade student in Santa Clara County to a professional arts event at no cost to schools or parents.
If that sounds like a good cause, you can vote on Facebook until 9 p.m. Wednesday (use the case-sensitive Web address bit.ly/CommunityGiving as a shortcut).

Thanks, Mr. Pizarro! Now … get out there and vote!
