America Express Member Project

If you have seen the American Express television commercials touting the "members project" you'll know what this blog entry is about. American Express is asking people to name their top projects they would like to see funded and American Express will donate up to $5 million to a project selected by card holders. "Cure For Alzheimer's" has made it into the top 50 projects and needs to make the next cut to 25. If you have an American Express card, I urge you to go vote for the Alzheimer's cause.

Here is more information from the Alzheimer's Association.

Help Make Alzheimer's the American Express Members Project

Thanks to hundreds of American Express cardholders who are champions for our cause, the Alzheimer's Association has been chosen as one of the top 50 projects in The Members Project, a new initiative from American Express that will award up to $5 million to a project selected by American Express cardholders.
