Positive Impact

There are only a few days left for American Express cardholders to submit ideas that would make a positive impact in the world. “The Member’s Project” which ends June 17th, 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. So far more than 900 community development projects, 700 education projects, 600 projects concerning the environment, 125 arts and entertainment ideas have been submitted and posted. Other project ideas so far include water purification, microfinance and environmental preservation. For more information visit “”:
