Remember when Ben Keesey, the executive director and CEO of Invisible Children, guest blogged last week asking for all of us to vote for them in the final days of a Facebook contest to win a million dollars? They won! And Ben sent us this inspiring video and note to thank everyone who helped with the effort:
On January 22nd, 2010, Invisible Children won $1,000,000 in the Chase Community Giving Facebook contest, competing against 99 charities for the most votes. Watch the suspense as the last hour unfolded. It took every phone call, every Tweet and every news article to spread the word. It came down to the wire in the end and we couldn’t have done it without YOU. Our most sincere thanks. Love, Invisible Children.
A big congrats to Invisible Children for their win.
