JPMorgan Chase’s charitable arm has pledged to dole out $5-million to grass-roots charities chosen by Facebook users, USA Today reports.

The top vote-getter will be awarded $1-million, with five runners-up getting $100,000 each and 100 other finalists receiving $25,000 apiece.

Kimberly Davis, president of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, said the organization views the contest as a model for future “crowdsourcing” programs. “We hope that people will see this as an exciting venture in innovation and for philanthropy,” she said.

ARCS' Westchester food pantries receive $10K from M.A.C

Friday, August 7th, 2009

This week, ARCS received a $10,000 grant from the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support its Westchester County food pantry programs. The funds will be used to purchase nutritious foods and household items from area food banks, which will be distributed to our hungry HIV-positive clients and their families who visit our Hawthorne food pantry or our Mount Vernon emergency food closet, housed in the Mosaic Center. We are deeply grateful for the continued support from the M·A·C AIDS Fund, who have given generously to ARCS for the past several years.

Established in 1994 by M·A·C Cosmetics, the M·A·C AIDS Fund supports men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS globally. Introducing its first VIVA GLAM lipstick that same year, M·A·C decided that every cent of the selling price of the VIVA GLAM lipsticks would go to the M·A·C AIDS Fund. With a total of six shades of Viva Glam lipstick and two shades of Viva Glam lipglass now sold worldwide, and through the annual Kids Helping Kids Card Program, M·A·C Cosmetics has provided over $135 million (US) to date for the M·A·C AIDS Fund. The M·A·C AIDS Fund is the heart and soul of the company – with its employees giving their time, energy and talent to help those affected by HIV/AIDS worldwide.

So keep buying VIVA GLAM lipsticks and you’ll be supporting ARCS while looking beautiful!
