VANS Culture Grant for School Arts, Music Programs

I'm going to be honest about two things. I both love and dread getting a Causes notification from Facebook. I have an activist's heart and love supporting worthwhile issues. But I don't that some Causes requests feel more like someone's agenda. Some literally spam me with requests. Post on your Facebook wall, but don't flood my email with your pet causes.

They seem to think because we are friends, our perspectives are the same. Even if we share the same beliefs, we may not agree on the manifestation of those beliefs. Sometimes I feel pressured and proselytized.

So though I participate in causes, I rarely send requests. But I just got one that I don't think will be too divisive: an arts education grant program. I doubt anyone will take exception to promoting cultural enrichment.   Facebook Causes, An Agenda We Can All Agree On
