ABOUT THE CONTEST: The Chase Community Giving contest has a lot of money ($5 million) to give as grants to the 196 charities in their eligible nominated organizations list that get the most Facebook member votes before Midnight Eastern time Wed, September 19. Right now only two organizations serving people with neuro-immune illnesses are in the running - Neuro Immune Disease Alliance (NIDA) and Phoenix Rising an NEID Corporation.
