They are the unsung heroes of America, nonprofit organizations that provide a helping hand to people and communities in need.

It’s time to give them their due.

We’ll be doing just that in the month of November with a program we call What A Difference A Day Makes, or WADADM for short.

It’s simple. Go to You’ll see 16 nonprofits from the markets served by Regions Bank. Learn a little about each one, then vote for your favorite. Vote often – once a day until the month ends.

The nonprofit receiving the most votes will receive a gift of $5,000 from Regions, as well as 100 volunteer hours of service from Regions associates to help the charity with an improvement project.

The winner will be announced in early December.

The remaining 15 nonprofits will also receive a level of volunteer service from our associates, as well as a financial contribution.

We’ll introduce nonprofits to you each day on Twitter, through our handle @RegionsNews. Want to know more? You can learn about Regions’ community commitment here.

So, take a few minutes. See their stories. Vote. And, if motivated enough, reach out and help.
