Only Two Weeks Left to Make a Difference Without Leaving Your Desk

With two clicks of a mouse, you can provide homeless veterans with access to justice, help foster children transition to independent living, or build awareness of Law Day!

The _ recently launched the “Make Your Likes Count” sweepstakes on Facebook, which invites legal professionals to support three ABA Fund for Justice and Education charities. The sweepstakes runs through May 15.

Here’s how it works: When you “LIKE” the ABA Facebook page, you have the opportunity to vote for one of three legal causes, the Homeless Veterans Initiative, Permanency Barriers Project and Law Day. The ABA will contribute a dime for each vote.  If all practicing lawyers in the United States participated, more than $100,000 would be raised.

Participants who vote for a cause can opt to enter for the chance to win prizes including vacation packages and tablets.  Prizes will be drawn through May 15.

To enter the sweepstakes and learn more about the legal causes it supports, visit:  http://www.facebook.com/AmericanBarAssociation?v=app_268204786592194.
