Non Profit Social Media Learning Coming to Chicago – With Your Help

Chase and LivingSocial are awarding  12 individual grants of $250,000 to 12 small businesses. And a peer of ours is in the running but needs your vote!

Melissa G Wilson lives here in Chicago. She wants to use the grant to launch a non-profit organization  to provide affordable ongoing, high quality social media training and book publishing support to all–especially entrepreneurs, small businesses, seniors and students.


Over the past 25 years she has donated thousands of dollars and thousands of hours to help professionals, entrepreneurs and young people from 12 to 29 get affordable social media and networking training. She has donated time and money to help groups like: the YMCA, YWCA, United Way, Scholarship Chicago, University of Dreams and dozens of young professionals.
