Vote For a Cause & Crank Up The Cause

April 30, 2012

Be a philanthropist for a day. Help us give away $50k.

Detroit4Detroit is a new campaign that is mobilizing 150 passionate Detroiters to complete 150 community projects across the city through 20 local Detroit nonprofits. On May 17th, they're hosting Crank Up The Cause, an innovative event that will bring citizens and their partner non-profits together to discuss and fund critical community projects in Detroit. Our own Travis Wright will be MC'ing and there will be food, music and entertainment - so register today here. Your $10 ticket will be turned into a $10 voucher at the event that you can share with the nonprofit of your choice.

We love crowd-sourced giveback here at WDET so we're upping the ante and giving away $50,000 in free promotion to Detroit4Detroit non-profit partners with your help!

Here's How It Works:
VOTING FOR PART 1 IS NOW CLOSED! 1,500 people helped us give away the first $25,000 through our Vote For The Cause campaign which ended on May 14th! Check out the results below. Organizations will receive a percentage of the $25,000 pot equal to the percent of votes they received. voteforacause_round1_results

We're giving away the second pot of $25,000 at Crank Up The Cause!
Your admission voucher will also count as a vote - and you'll be able to support one of 20 non-profits on site! Each non-profit will receive a percentage of the airtime we're giving away and the funds will be distributed proportionally based on the number of votes.
Buy your ticket today and spread the word!
