More news from DZANC

We are sending this email to you because you actually clicked through on the Facebook application link two days ago when Chase and/or Facebook was having all sorts of problems. We believe you did this because you intended to vote for us, or possible check out where our status was at that time. Well, Chase has extended the voting to go through until midnight tonight, and if you tried voting before and left frustrated, we'd certainly appreciate your trying again today. Again, the link was fixed late last night and appears to be working fine right now.


We at Dzanc would like to thank those of you that have voted for us in the Chase Community Giving contest and remind those of you that may have been busy when our initial email came through that you can still vote up through Friday night at midnight. You can do so here.

Receiving a $25,000 grant from Chase Bank will enable us at Dzanc Books to further extend and support our charitable commitments which now include the Dzanc Prize, our Dzanc Writers in Residence Programs, the numerous workshops and readings we do nationally, and our plans to bring additional programs to students and adults who might not otherwise be able to participate in these sort of workshops and courses.

Those of you clicking to vote now, you'll be asked to Become a Fan of Chase Community Giving - there's a specific button for this on that page - once you do that, you can enter Dzanc Books Inc in the Search for your charity box and then vote for us. Even though you're given 20 votes, you can only vote for Dzanc one time.

Thanks again to everybody,

Steve Gillis
