Members Project® from American Express: Philanthropy Charges Ahead

Looking for a simple but impactful way to give back? Members Project from American Express, in partnership with TakePart, is an initiative that allows you to get in on the action by voting on charities that you’d like to see get funding from American Express. With a total of up to 50 causes involved, there are a ton of opportunities to volunteer or donate to help make the world a better place.

Our Cause of the Week: EarthShare

For the next several weeks, we’re going to highlight a new charitable organization that’s a favorite of Flavorpill staffers. This week we’re focusing on EarthShare, a community-based environmental group that connects people with “green” nonprofits through workplace giving, volunteer opportunities, and educational programs.

Even though our Cause of the Week isn’t part of Members Project, you should check out similar charities, join, and start making a difference on www.takepart.com/membersproject.

How? On the site, you can cast your vote every week to help decide which five charities will receive funding from American Express, volunteer your time, and donate to your favorite charities. Voting is open to everyone, and there will be five new winners every three months.
