Members Project from American Express and Take Part 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.

Our Cause of the Week: Orbis International
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 Orbis International, a nonprofit, global development organization whose mission is to eliminate avoidable blindness in developing countries. They do this by working with local eye health partners to prevent and treat avoidable blindness.
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.
