Project Ideas

The nation’s third largest payment card network has launched a unique online initiative that enables its cardholders to create and share project ideas for making a positive impact in the world. The new American Express “The Members Project, which opens today, enables cardholders to rate and discuss the project ideas on message boards and then ultimately vote and choose one innovative winning idea that AmEx will help bring to life with up to $5 million. After registering online cardholders submit their project ideas for one of the following categories: Arts & Entertainment, Business & Finance, Education, Environment & Wildlife, Fun, Health & Fitness and Community Development. For every cardholder that registers, regardless of whether they come up with a project idea or just add their input on project ideas already submitted, AmEx will contribute $1 toward the winning idea. The more cardholders registered, the more dollars available. AmEx says it will commit at least $1 million and up to $5 million for the winning idea. The top 50 ideas will be announced on July 3rd and cardholders can then log-on and cast their vote for their favorite idea. For more information visit “”:
