Habitat for Humanity is participating in Jewelers Mutual Insurance Company’s “Band Together” online voting campaign this month, which allows the public to decide how $2 million will be distributed to national nonprofits. Beginning today, voters may cast daily ballots for Habitat for Humanity. Other participating nonprofits include St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, with Feeding America and Food Banks Canada competing together. The cause that receives the most votes by July 31 will receive the $1 million grand prize from Jewelers Mutual. The runner-up will get $700,000 and $300,000 will go to the third-place winner.
“Jewelers Mutual has a long legacy of supporting organizations that make lasting and positive changes in their communities,” said Scott Murphy, president and CEO at Jewelers Mutual. “But this year, we are pulling out all the stops and donating the biggest one-time gift in our history. Our business is thriving, and we’re committed to helping people in need thrive, as well.”
As part of the campaign, online voters will also be eligible to win one of three sets of stacking bands from Stacked New York. Each week of the campaign, one voter will be randomly selected to win.
Jewelers Mutual will announce the winners and vote totals on Aug. 1.
