And the winner of the last $100,000 spot in the Chase Community Giving Program is…. overcoming a deficit of 1617 votes in the last 12 hours is…. couldn’t have done it without their amazing families and friends is… the very humble and grateful … Diamond Blackfan Anemia Foundation! At 7:00pm we took the lead by 48 votes. We worked tirelessly throughout the night and at midnight we had secured 16,123 votes! We claimed 11th place (out of over 7000 charities!) by 721 votes! Each one of those votes over the past 14 days added to our win, not just in number, but in our hearts. Early voters put us at the top of the leaderboard right from the start inspiring us that we really could do this. Those votes in the middle of the competition gave us confidence that $100,000 was within our reach, if we preserved. Last minute voters were part of the final day push that we needed to take it home. Thank you, thank you, thank you one and all. YOU made this happen!
