You can Make Your Comunidad a Better Place – Win a $25K Grant from State Farm

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and State Farm.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.

I recently shared with you all about State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist Program. State Farm’s Neighborhood Assist is encouraging people from the United States and Canada to submit a cause for a chance to win one of 40 $25,000 grants.  I want to make this world better for mi familia, for mi comunidad.I want my kids to grow up in a better world and I am passionate about that!  I also want them to lear about the importance of giving back to your community.  My dad is a wonderful example of this, ever since I can remember he was a member of organizations that helped our people in Guatemala who where not as fortunate as we where.  No matter how hard he works or how much he has to do he always makes time to be involved and give back and that is something that I want to pass on to my own children.  That is why I volunteer and I stand behind those causes that I feel passionate about and I truly believe that I can make a difference.

Beginning on March 3rd, people are invited to submit causes via the free State Farm Neighborhood Assist Facebook app. When a maximum of 4,000 cause submissions are received (deadline of March 23), the State Farm Youth Advisory Board will review all submissions and identify the top 200 based on a scoring rubric. The top 200 causes will then be announced on April 28 and anyone who has the free Facebook app can vote for their favorite causes with up to 10 votes per day until May 16. The top 40 vote-receiving causes will then each receive a $25,000 grant to help address the submitted cause. The top 40 vote-receiving causes will be announced via the Facebook app on May 27.

The time is here for you to share that cause that is near and dear to your heart.  What are you passionate about? What idea do you have to improve tu comunidad or tu vecindario?  I am passionate about many things and I believe that it only take one person, with enough passion and drive, to change the world. There are so many examples of this in history!  ¡Ayudemos a mejorar el mundo para nuestros hijos!  (Let’s make this a better world for our kids!)


[important]Submissions open now. Submit a cause you are passionate on the State Farm Neighborhood Assist app HERE as soon as possible because  submissions will end when 4,000 submissions have been received which is usually well before the March 23rd deadline.[/important]
