A Sikh Museum? Possible with your vote in 4 days!

graphic.jpgSikh history is about to be made in North America. In December, throughout the United States, 500,000 nonprofit charities competed on a competition on the popular internet website, Facebook, for the Chase Bank Community Giving contest. The top 100 groups advanced to the second round for a chance at 1 million dollars.

Out of the top 100 groups, a Sikh youth organization was amongst the top 20. That Sikh youth organization was the Jakara Movement. The Jakara Movement has hundreds of volunteers throughout California and has been organizing Sikh conferences, retreats, camps for the youth for the past 10 years. Now they have a unique opportunity for seva for their community. The Jakara Movement has publicly committed that funds won will go towards the building of a historic Sikh Museum in North America.

To make this a reality, the Jakara Movement requires the help of the entire Sikh community. It is not asking for money. Only a simple vote on the popular internet website Facebook. From January 15 to 22nd, 2010 you can vote for the Sikh museum through Facebook. The Jakara Movement has created a website with instructions on how to make a Facebook account and how to vote. It can be viewed at www.votesikh.com. Gurjit Singh, a volunteer with Jakara states, In order to make this successful, we need the support of the entire Sikh community, from Bathinda, to Birmingham, to Brisbane, to Brampton, to Bakersfield. Anyone with a Facebook account can vote from anywhere in the world.

For more information visit www.votesikh.com and help the Jakara Movement make the first Sikh Museum in North America a reality.

They are looking right now for volunteers in their local communities to begin putting up posters, distributing flyers, and getting the word out. Visit www.votesikh.com and volunteer!
