San Francisco Charity A GOOD IDEA to Give $100,000 to Haiti Victims Upon Winning Nationwide Charity Program
Date:1/15/2010

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- A Good Idea, a volunteer organization which is a vehicle for positive social change ideas in San Francisco, plans to give $100,000 to Haiti earthquake victims if the organization is selected as the winner of the Chase Community Giving contest sponsored by JPMorgan Chase & Co.

"While A Good Idea focuses on homelessness within the Bay Area, we feel that it is of the utmost importance to contribute to the people of Haiti," said Jared Paul, Founder and Executive Director of A Good Idea.

A Good Idea was among 100 small charities out of 500,000 eligible nationwide to garner enough Facebook votes to receive a $25,000 grant as part of the Chase contest. Entering the second round of voting on Friday, January 15, A Good Idea will give $100,000 of their winnings if they are able to earn enough Facebook votes to propel them to the top spot in the contest.

"We are grateful for the opportunity to make a difference in Haiti," said Paul. "By connecting people in need with people that want to help, our organization has the ability to offer courage and support."

In two years, A Good Idea has built a strong following of volunteers and produced a string of impactful community service events in the San Francisco Bay Area. The group recently attracted national attention for its 24 Hours of Service Event, which included distribution of goods to the homeless and other civil outlets. Gaining nationwide notoriety for their work, A Good Idea was awarded the "Acts of Kindness" award from the American Red Cross and has been recognized by Mayor Gavin Newsom and the San Francisco Board of Supervisors.
