Chase bank was giving donations to 200 charities. AHC foundation in the states was one of the 200. This is very good news for the foundation and all the AHC patients. Beside the fact that the money will come handy it also raises awareness of AHC and could lead to more funding hopefully.
Chase Community Giving is back to give away another $5 million, and you help decide which 200 local charities receive donations. Just search, vote, and share your enthusiasm with your friends. It’s a new Way Forward for giving. AHCF is eligable for 20.000$ donation if we vote the foundation in the top 200 so please vote. http://apps.facebook.com/chasecommunitygiving/
