Challah for Hunger Chase’s the Scale

If you have a moment, Please take a moment to vote for Challah for Hunger–the project of PresenTense 07 Fellow Eli Winkelman–in the Chase Community Giving contest on Facebook. 

Vote now!!

Chase Bank is giving grants of $25,000 to the 100 organizations with the highest number of votes.  Voting ends December 11.  That's this Friday!

Challah for Hunger chapters bake and sell, to raise awareness and funds for hunger- and disaster-relief.  Through the challah enterprise, other impacts are achieved: community strengthening and bridge building, Jewish identity development, education and advocacy, leadership training, critical philanthropy training, and more.

When Eli came to PresenTense in the summer of 07, there were two chapters of Challah for Hunger.  In May 08, there were six.  Now, there are almost thirty, based mostly on college campuses in the US.  And Eli has a list of more than 40 other people who want to start chapters in their communities!  In 2009, Challah for Hunger has raised more than $60,000 to donate to other organizations, by baking and selling more than 20,000 loaves of challah.  They are projecting donations of $100,000 in 2010. 

The Chase Community Giving grant would allow Challah for Hunger to better support its existing and new chapters.  Please vote today and encourage everyone you know to do the same.
