Great HEART Give 2015 Voting This Friday!

In just four short days, Great HEART Give 2015 will be under way! This year’s new approach means that votes will be collected only on May 8, from 6AM–6PM. This year’s nonprofit finalists include (listed alphabetically):

Big Brothers Big Sisters Illinois Capital Region

Common Place

LifeLine Pilots

Meadows at Mercy Creek

Neighborhood House


You can vote in the following ways:

1. Text your vote.
Text “GHG2015” to 22333 to register, then vote with the code that corresponds with your nonprofit up to 10 times.* Standard messaging rates apply.

2. Tweet your vote.
Love Twitter? Now you can tweet your nonprofit’s code to @Heart_Tech up to 10 times to cast your vote.* We recommend tweeting something different, like adding hashtags or tagging your nonprofit’s Twitter account, to ensure that your multiple tweets aren’t considered spam posts.

3. Vote online.
Go to our online voting site to cast your vote up to ten times. If multiple voters are using your computer, we recommend making Poll Everywhere accounts for each voter (it takes about 30 seconds to do) so that all votes are counted.


Be sure to spread the news about Great HEART Give to up your nonprofit’s chances of winning a $10,000 technology grant! Like us on Facebook to share our posts, and join our event page for updates and reminders.


Good luck to all our finalists on May 8!
