WASHINGTON, D.C., Jan. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Two days remain to support America's national parks with just one "click."

As part of the challenge grant campaign, each of the competing charities is guaranteed $100,000. Public support through an online voting campaign will determine how the remaining $600,000 will be allotted to the four charities. Funds raised for the Foundation through this campaign will support national park restoration and preservation efforts, connect under served communities to their parks, and give disadvantaged children the opportunity to experience their national parks for the first time.
