Chase and Living Social have teamed up to increase awareness of the important role small businesses play in local communities and to help small businesses grow. Together they have agreed to give 12 small businesses across the US each a $250,000 grant to further their business. Each applicant has to submit a lengthy application complete with an essay section consisting of their responses to the statements and questions asked by the panel of judges and will be used to determine whether they should be awarded a Grant. Sounds like an amazing opportunity and we feel Chase and Living Social are doing a great thing.
Here is the kicker, anyone can apply BUT only the small businesses that get 250 votes at www.missionsmallbusiness.com will be looked at by the panel. Here are the 5 steps you can take NOW to help out your local small businesses!

It takes less than a minute! Your vote could help push that business to the next level increasing revenues, increasing new jobs and stimulating our economy. If that doesn’t get you motivated think of this: Some of you call it karma, but we at eFaith believe what God said in Luke 6:38, “Give and it shall be given back to you, press down, shaken together and running over!” That means when you help further someone else’s vision even better things will come back to you in your life!
