Remember that annoying plea I made to get you to join Chase Community Giving on Facebook and vote for Barrel of Monkeys? Well, it worked. It and lots of other pleas. So thanks!

We've known for a while that we were one of the 200 companies that got enough votes to win a $20,000 grant.

What we just found out is that of all the nonprofits to receive at least one vote in that competition, we were one of 17 chosen by an advisory board to receive an additional $30,000.

17. Nationwide. Chosen not by popularity or hustling ability but by worthiness.

That means more money for our work with CPS, more men in wigs, and more silly dances.

So great! Congratulations! When you can effectively peer-pressure people into supporting you AND get merit-based support, that's when you've really made it, in my opinion!
