Explanation of Voting System (how we choose our final beneficiary from our top 3)
OUR BENEFICIARY IS NOT CHOSEN BY POPULAR VOTE.
Your CORR representative is responsible for counting your region’s total votes.
Your CORR representative has the option to override the actual voting results of your region should they feel that the attendees at the conference are not an adequate representation of the region. They are however encouraged to take your vote, discussion, and notes into consideration if this option is exercised. (this will be noted and made public.)
Each region’s vote will equal 100 points to be assigned and divide amongst our 3 finalist.
For example your regions 100 points could end up looking like this:

ORG 3 – 10 points (10% chose ORG 3)
A max of 1,200 points will be awarded across our three presenting organizations. With the organization with the most points being our winner.

Unity in Action: 2011-2012 Collective Philanthropy Project Beneficiary Selected!
Friday, August, 2011 – Youth leaders from across North America came together during the UNAVSA-8 Conference in Denver, Colorado on July 30th, 2011 to vote on the next beneficiary for the Collective Philanthropy Project.
The Collective Philanthropy Project, CPP, is an initiative created in 2004 for Vietnamese-student and community organizations to collaborate in working toward a charitable cause. The idea was to create momentum for a collective national effort under a different philanthropic campaign each year. The CPP campaign assists non-profit organizations to better achieve their mission through collective and collaborative fundraising with UNAVSA.
Prior to the conference, Non-Profits were nominated at the grassroots level and encouraged to submit a application and proposal for a project that would utilize the energy of the Vietnamese American student youth network. Based on the applications received, the Preliminary Selection Board narrowed the field down to top three organizations. These organizations were Children of Vietnam, Catalyst Foundation, and Viet Nam Medical Assistance Program. Each organization had to travel to Denver and make the case for their project through a a intense 3 hours of Pitch presentations, individual q/a, and a group panel q/a. after which our regional members broke up into discussion groups to decide how their region would vote on the proposals.
The UNAVSA is pleased to announce Children of Vietnam’s the Hope System of Care, as our 2011-2012 Collective Philanthropy Project beneficiary.
Children of Vietnam (COV), based in Winston, Salem, creates a future for these children that is full of promise. They are dedicated to providing these children with what they need to succeed in life: good nutrition, life saving medical care, safe and secure housing, and access to education.
As a result of COV’s life changing programs, these children can look toward a brighter future. COV helps these children escape the cycle of poverty, overcome the limitation of disability, and realize the dreams they never thought possible.
UNAVSA’s and its regional partners, along with individual VSAs across the nation will collaborate with Children of Vietnam and its team of dedicated volunteer staff to create a national campaign from September 2011 to July 2012 to help bring awareness to the plight of disabled children within Vietnam.
This past weekend the Union of North American Vietnamese Associations selected Children of Vietnam and the Hope System of Care as the beneficiary of their year-long fundraising by its chapters on college campuses all across the United States and Canada.
