Bank calls for people to vote for charity money The AIB Better Ireland programme is calling on people to vote by text for their favourite charity and give them a chance to get €10,000. AIB is giving €1.85 million to childrens’ projects all over Ireland.Local communities will have the final say in choosing 185 most deserving children’s projects to receive funding. By voting they can choose which group in their area gets EUR10,000 from their local AIB branch.Voting runs to 6th June. Each text vote costs 60c (including VAT) plus standard network charges, and all proceeds (after operator charges & VAT) will go to the relevant short-listed group, regardless of the final voting outcome.AIB’s Better Ireland Programme received 1,300 applications for funding nationwide. These applications were then short-listed to 547 children’s projects. Applications ranged from a wide variety of groups including homework clubs, teen clubs, autistic services, community crèches, schools and colleges as well as drug and alcohol services for youth.Local participation, local voting and local benefit are key criteria for the AIB Better Ireland Programme.www.aibgroup.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 12 May 2008 | News Tagged with: corporate Ireland 23 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
