The semi-finalists for “The Members Project” were announced this week by American Express. The program asked cardholders to submit, discuss and rate ideas to make a positive impact in the world. Project ideas ranged from local community-based projects throughout the USA to international aid projects in Africa and Asia. More than 7,000 project ideas submitted to “The Members Project.” In the next phase of “The Members Project,” American Express is calling for cardholders to register and vote for their favorite project ideas to narrow down the list to the idea about which cardholders are most passionate. For every cardholder that registers, American Express will contribute $1 toward the winning idea. American Express has committed at least $1 million and up to $5 million to bring the winning idea to life. For more information visit: “http://www.membersproject.com”:http://www.membersproject.com.
