Lend a Hand and I’ll Give You Some G-Tech

chase jarvis town hallFriends: It’s the weekend and I’m focused on some personal stuff that could use your help if you’re willing. I’m trying to help my favorite non-profit win a $125,000 grant to make emergency repairs to their building, and I’m willing to incent you with about $500 bucks in gear for your help in doing so. If you are interested, please read on.

[NEWEST update: in what the sponsoring group, Partners in Preservation, called "an unprecedented photo finish" I'm soooo happy and grateful and pround to announce that WE DID IT! Town Hall wins $125,000 grant. Thank you thank you thank you!]

[UPDATE: we went to 1st but are now back in 2nd, so we need your help more than ever. Don't forget to follow the instructions below, it's a little tricky. And more importantly, please vote everyday. Karma points. ]

Background: Town Hall Seattle is a cultural center based in Seattle that showcases diverse music, arts and humanities, civic discourse, and world culture programming. They feature the broadest range of any programming that I’ve ever known–from hosting cultural heavy hitters like David Lynch, Moby, Malcolm Gladwell, Barak Obama, Al Gore, and Arianna Huffington all the way to community activists, children’s choirs, poets, Seattle’s hip hop acts, and the local Spelling Bee. It’s simply an amazing cultural and creative hub.

Here’s the good news: the grant winner is decided purely by a popular vote online. The most votes wins. Here’s the challenge: Currently Town Hall is in 2nd place by 1% and the voting ends THIS Wednesday May 12. It would mean the world to me and the my community if you would vote. And here’s some incentive from yours truly. 100% honor system here. IF you vote, and IF leave a comment below saying that you’ve voted I will choose one person from the comment section below (bonus points for roping in your friends to vote too…) and send them a super-awesome 2 TB worth of G-Tech hard drive love (+/- $500 value) from my personal stash. We roll G-Tech drives exclusively around here, and I’m expressly grateful for their support.

Now go forth and vote. It’s easy:
1. Visit the grant award site here and select ‘New User’ in the ‘Vote Now’ box.
2. Register with a name, email and password. (Don’t be scared off by this. It’s harmless and you can check the don’t contact me box!)
3. Scroll down to Town Hall and click on it. A check will appear, but you’re not done yet.
4. IMPORTANT: now scroll to bottom of the page and click VOTE.
5. Awesome. Now that you’re registered and logged in, you can vote everyday thru Wednesday 12th. Bonus karma points if you vote today, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.

Yes, whoever built this voting widget wrote code like it was 1998, but don’t let that get in your way. We all …need more data storage and what better way to get some free terabytes than by helping this great cause land $125k.

If you’re itching to watch a video, here’s a little promo I made with pal Chris Ballew of the Presidents of the United States of America just for fun and to help raise awareness. Thank you thank you thank you friends.

    Good Luck Town Hall!

    BTW, if you happen to pick me to win the G-tech drive, go ahead and give it to Town Hall Seattle, a local school, or some other organization who could use the love. They probably need it more than I do.

    Good luck, THS!!!

    Hey Chase.
    Just published this: http://bit.ly/9E8QB9 to spread the word…. but in case you choose me I’d much rather see the photos you wrote about in this thing: http://blog.chasejarvis.com/blog/2007/09/to-go-or-not-to-go/ than to receive some G-Techs. Both the situation and set sounds cool and authentic and I have plenty of terabytes (also the fact that I live in Denmark would be make the shipping difficult).

    Anyways… good luck!

  186. Ryan May 9, 2010 at 2:03 pm #

I am in town this week for a scouting trip, drove by your studio was going to stop by, but figured no one was there on such a gorgeous sunny Sat afternoon, maybe some other time.

    I voted today, will vote tomorrow, and wednesday for sure. I am more of a musician than an photography (but still love photography a whole lot) and I think venues like this that help give artists a place to express themselves is great to keep alive. That’s just my opinion. I really do hope it stays up and thanks Chase for giving back. You have inspired me in so many ways to give back as well.

  389. ZachWagner May 9, 2010 at 10:38 pm #

    Great cause! I voted! :)

  390. JeffScottShaw May 9, 2010 at 10:40 pm #

    Thanks for the heads up. I actually just drove by town hall and told my wife how excited I was to take her there when we move to Cap Hill this summer (as she hasn’t had the opportunity to see it’s beauty). It wasn’t until a Rosie Thomas Christmas concert two years ago that I even knew Town Hall wasn’t a political place but I must admit that it has quickly become my favorite venue in the city. They got my vote tonight and they’ll get my vote until the vote closes. Hopefully all my friends will follow your lead and Town Hall will finish first on Wed. Thanks again for the work you do outside of your actual job.

  391. Basim May 9, 2010 at 10:45 pm #
