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.

Mike says:

Yay, we did it! The power of blogs can be amazing!

Lucas Edwards says:

Congratulations everyone! I’m very happy to be a part of the votings.

Squid says:

Congrats voters, I’m glad I put in a vote a day like the rest of the Chase army. I’m glad they have two winners.

Arnel Garcia says:

Wow! That is a really great! Two winners! Congratulations.

Sanja Io Eos says:

Congratulations! :D Kisses from Croatia :*

YEAH! dual winners, i knew it would work out in the end :)

Tim Colston says:

In the immortal words of Hannibal Smith–” I love it when a plan comes together.” Thanks for letting us become a part history, at least in Seattle.

Federico says:

Wow, great outcome! Congratulations!

Wow, great result !!!
Congrats !

Rob Arora says:

Awesome that they gave them BOTH FULL Grants !! Very impressive :)
Congrats Susan (and crew)!

Greg says:

Great outcome! Congrats.

The votes are in! It was a tie! You both won!
“In an impressive challenge never seen in the history of the Partners in Preservation program, Town Hall Seattle also staged a comeback resulting in several swings of the tally on the final day of voting. In recognition of the extreme closeness of the competition and the extraordinary efforts of both organizations to rally support, Town Hall Seattle will also receive their full grant request of $125,000.”

Way to go!

jason says:

voted the last 2 days. congrats!

Silas Otero says:

Great News… Congrats…

Glad that our effort ended up helping two historic sites…


Silas Otero

Brent says:

Love that they gave the prize to both 1st and second! we made a difference through you Chase.. A great great thing you/we did here!!!

Congrats Town Hall!!!!!!!

Susan Benson says:

Chase, we don’t know each other but I’m board president at Town Hall and we’ve been singing your praises for eons. But now, you’re now sporting a permanent halo. Without you and your community I’m sure we couldn’t have achieved this outcome. As you all probably know by now, Town Hall battled so hard that Partners in Preservation is giving Town Hall the full $125,000 grant — the first time in the history of the project that they’ve given the first and second place finishers the same amount. Thank you, Chase. And thanks to each and every one of you who took up the cause of our amazing project. Because of you, Seattle’s temple of thought and creativity will serve longer and stronger and glow brighter.

M@ says:

Awesome, great work. I’ll have to make sure to stop by the Town Hall when I make my first trip to Seattle next month.

There is nothing better than making a popular vote so close that they have to award the top two the same amount of money. I’m so glad Town Hall still gets $125,000. Thanks to all of you folks who are not from Seattle and will never have the opportunity to step foot in that awesome venue.

Stuart Nafey says:

Voted Wednesday too!

Michael Marks says:

3 for 3 for me and my wife. Good luck!

Anthony says:

Voted all three days.

Looks like the Town Hall is still in second place, but there’s still time to vote! 940 responses, wow!

Tova says:

Well, there you go. I registered and voted for Town Hall and so did my daughter.

I hope I’m doing the right thing… hard choices. My sister lives on, and is the Harbor Master of, Bainbridge Island, is a Tug Boat Captain, and plays in a local Cajun Fiddle Band. I really hope she will be proud that I supported Town Hall ( but I just read about this and it’s too late at night to call her and check).

If you ever want to check her group it’s whozyamama.com

Hope your Hall wins

Gabe says:

Voted again.

jen berry says:

Day 3 of 3. voted. task completed. why are we still tied. boooo.l

Andrius Simutis says:

A little late to the party here, but I just voted and unfortunately the boat is in first place at the moment. Nothing against boats, and it’s a nice boat mind you, but I don’t like the idea of the boat getting the money at the expense of Town Hall.

Beltpotter says:

Triple turbo voted.

DanielB says:

Voted again. We’re still in 2nd…only by 1%, though

Joe Herrick says:


Rob Arora says:

Voted again… dang – still behind by 1%! :(

Josh Baker says:

Check one more for Town Hall. Hope they can pick up the extra 1%+ today. I’ll see if I cant shake out some votes on Facebook today. Good Luck

Voted yesterday and today again, but unfortunately the town hall lost one percent in the race against the schooner :(

Nathan Smith says:

Ok! My wife and I placed out last and final votes this morning! Looks like the Town hall was behind again.. still have until the end of the day!! :D

jedrocero says:

ScottMacKenzie says:

dawn smith says:

Jeff Shaffer says:

Voted all 3 days, tweeted, FB’d. I hope it helps. It looks like the Schooner has surged ahead by a point so far. Need to get more votes in-yesterday was neck and neck!

Joel Woo says:

Voted a 3rd time.

Kevin says:

Just put in my second vote. That schooner is still pullin’ out a small lead. I’ll try & get some friends involved. I think it’s time for Facebook.

Lucas Edwards says:

3 votes now :-) You are right Brent. I can’t believe it. Many people must be voting since we are not ahead yet. But, in fact we were doing great yesterday – 18%! I will be blogging on twitter and facebook to get more voters to vote on
Town Hall Seattle!

Can we do it?
Yes we can!

Laurie Iten says:

OK, third day in a row I’ve voted. Wonder where all the people voting for Schooner are coming from? Hmm, could it be a computer with multiple user IDs and passwords programmed to vote over, and over, all the while monitoring votes for Town Hall?

Brent says:

Its hard for me to believe that everyone who reads this actually did it and Schooner is still ahead!
Hope Town Hall makes it!

Michal says:


M@ says:

Voted again…that **** schooner…

Øyvind says:

Voted today as well :D

Mike says:

That’s another (third) vote from me – good luck!

Dustin says:

Voted again, sorry I didn’t see this sooner. I only got to vote twice.

Alex says:

Placed my third vote…hope Town Hall gets it…good luck Chase!

CMDVisuals says:

voted the third time now (advantage of beeing in an other time zone). But town hall is still second place. Dammit.

Andreas Ott says:

voted today again

Timo G. says:

Voted for the 3rd time now… 2nd place with 18% vs. 19% for that Schooner thing…

CMDVisuals says:

Voted the second time.

Kuba says:

Voted 3rd time, cheers :)

Jenny Grand says:

The Adventuress is a worthy competitor, but I love photography and the arts more, so I voted for Town Hall. Also believe more people, with a greater variety of interests, will benefit from the grant to Town Hall.
Thanks for drawing attention to a great cause.

I was able to vote for the third time for the Town Hall and I see it is still in second place so I hope more people will vote for it to win. Last day to vote.

Voted again today also.

Jakob says:

Hi Chase,

I triple voted for the townhouse from Denmark. Not that I care about the townhouse or Seattle as such, but I am all for all things that keep inspiring you, so you in turn can keep inspiring through your work.

Dena Warmus says:

I am so excited to have voted for such an incredible cause!

Greg says:

Voted again today. Hoping this sends some karma my way. Last Wednesday I was doored riding my bike to work, denting my MacbookPro and smashing my external hard drive. That hurts me more than my broken wrist. At this point I’m not above looking for a hand out.

Hope the votes help.

Cynthia Wood says:

Hey Chase,

I just voted again – looks like Town Hall and Schooner Adventures are still neck and neck with 18% of the votes each. Tight race!?

I did want to mention, however, that even though I clicked on the “please don’t contact me” box I’ve already started getting emails from the National Preservation Society (or whatever it’s called)… :(

Fingers crossed for Town Hall Seattle! I want to go there next time I go visit my folks in Mill Creek.


Rick Yazwinski says:

Hugo says:

Done voted, best of luck with this project.

Sue says:

I wish they could ALL get the money! -but two reasons I voted for Town Hall are 1) 350 events per year- that’s something happening almost every single day!
2) more importantly- all events are $5 or less! -what good is a cultural center if it’s not accessible to the whole community, not just to those who can afford to enjoy it. Every community should have a place like Town Hall :)

Hey Chase, voted from sunny (well a bit wet actually) South Africa!

Voted ! Haven’t yet been to Seattle but honestly, it looks like the town hall is just the kinda place I’d head for. With all the sway you’ve got online, it makes me wonder how the Schooner (which does also look pretty cool) has done so well !

Devin says:

Voted, twittered, facebooked it! Almost wrote in on my face with a sharpie… but… no. Would that help?

But you are a person I feel I can trust. So I’ll vote each day to do my part. (Plus, you get bonus points for the video, photographers are suckers for something visual)
Keep up the good work, and I’ll past on the link to all my friends so they can do theirs.

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.

ZachWagner says:

Great cause! I voted! :)

Jason L says:

I voted today, will vote tomorrow, and wednesday for sure.

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!
