We’re turning our Facebook Wall into a big greeting card!


Starting tomorrow, we have a really cool way to honor everyone who’s graduating in the Public Allies Class of 2010.

Each unique congratulations post made on our Facebook Wall between tomorrow and June 30 will be met with a $5 donation to a Public Allies fund-raising campaign on Causes.com. So you can share your good wishes with, say, the Allies who graduate in Miami next week, or the class graduating in North Carolina next month, and $5 will be donated in their name — without you having to spend a penny.

Pretty nice, huh?

It’s all thanks to a generous matching donor who’s helping out with the campaign. But to me, the best thing about this idea is that it gives us a chance to all get together in one virtual “place” to share a little love and honor a truly admirable accomplishment — finishing 10 months of a Public Ally apprenticeship program.

FYI here are the graduation dates:

  • June 15: Cincinnati
  • June 24: Chicago, Delaware
  • June 25: Milwaukee
  • June 30: Arizona, Connecticut, Miami, New Mexico, New York, Pittsburgh, San Antonio, Silicon Valley
  • July 2: North Carolina
  • July 9: Los Angeles
  • July 30: Maryland
  • August 1: Indianapolis
  • August 7: Eagle Rock

So if you know anyone graduating from one of those sites, think about visiting www.facebook.com/publicallies and giving him or her a shout-out. Further details can found at this Facebook Events page.
