$25,000 Richer!

We're THRILLED to announce that MPI finished as one of top 100 non-profits with the most votes in the Chase Community Giving competition on Facebook... so what does that mean?

WE WON $25,000!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Five grand will go directly to programs in Ecuador, and I can't wait to see what we decide to do with it... More chairs and tables for the library? Weights for Women's Exercise? Bookshelves for the Preventive Health Center? Pay raises for Program Directors? (Kidding on that last one.) :) The possibilities are endless.

Thanks SO MUCH to everyone who took the time to vote for us. We couldn't have done it without you!

Peace, love and Facebook voting competitions,

You guys did an incredible job getting out the vote! Congrats all around and don't forget to start dreaming up ideas for what we'd do with $1 MILLION! Round 2 voting starts 1/15 and the top ten get $100K with the winner getting the cool mil.
