Adam Milstein Meme Competition is Open

Calling all Meme-ers! The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, founded by Adam Milstein, has teamed up with over a dozen pro-Israel and Jewish organizations to sponsor a pro-Israel Meme Competition called the “Milstein Meme Competition.”

The competition is currently open and ongoing. Anyone is invited to submit a Pro-Israel meme to the worldwide competition. There is a limit of five memes per participant.

Beginning August 3rd at 5:00am EST there will be a public voting period where people can select the meme they like best. This will be a unique voting process as the votes will be judged based on Facebook reactions. These reactions vary from like to love, from laughter to wows and sad to angry. This open public voting period will run until August 14th at Midnight EST.

Once the public voting closes a panel of six pro-Israel activists will select the winners and those winners will be awarded with cash prizes (totaling $2,000) and a public announcement that will be made August 17th by Adam Milstein.

According to Adam Milstein, the goal of the competition is to utilize memes to reach Millennials and Gen Z that are so fond of the method of expression with the goal of going viral during or after the competition. The memes submitted can vary in tone, from funny to dramatic, whatever the meme artist envisions. To sign up or vote, you can visit http://www.milsteinmemes.org.

The Center for Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership was Made Possible by Bruce Levenson

The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership is located within the University of Maryland. The center works to educate students in all areas of nonprofit and philanthropy. For instance, students were recently sent to India to work with the youth, disabled individuals and wildlife preservation. The center donates about $10,000 in gifts to non-profit organizations. The center hopes to prepare students to become the new leaders of non-profit organizations. They do this through providing them with the necessary skills and experience to lead these types of organizations. The center began with the donations from Bruce Levenson and his wife, Karen Levenson. Bruce is well known for his philanthropy. He is also a owner of an NBA team and a businessman. He is also a board member. His wife, Karen, is a teacher and works with at risk youth. The center is utilized to assure that each student at the University of Maryland gains knowledge on the importance of giving back to their communities and to those less fortunate through the means of non-profit organizations and philanthropy. When they leave the university, many students involved with the center have worked closely enough with the non-profit organizations, that they go on to work for them. Also, many students are inspired to launch their own non-profit organizations, as they continue to receive support from the center. http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html
