Upload as many videos as you’d like, but be sure to mention only ONE nonprofit per video for a chance to win! If you’re uploading to a personal Facebook page, remember to set your video to public, so it can be included in the contest.

The named nonprofits in the eligible videos with the second, third, and fourth most “Likes” will each be the recipient of a $500 grant prize.
