I wrote this review while participating in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting on behalf of State Farm and I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
There are many benefits to living in a rural area or small town like mine. My family enjoys the privacy gained by owning property, and the ability to have horses, goats, and other animals. Traffic is not an issue. Some days it seems like I see just as many golf carts, four wheelers and tractors going down the road, as I do cars. Friday night high school football games bring out the whole community. There are also some downfalls to living in a rural area. We lack the conveniences of shopping and restaurants, and there is little to no money for the arts, or programs to assist those in need. A pet rescue program is something I would really like to see. I am excited to learn about the State Farm Neighborhood Assist program where communities like yours and mine can get funding for projects that will make the community better.
State Farm Neighborhood Assist awards $25,000 grants to help communities through community development, education, and safety initiatives. There are 200 programs throughout the United States and Canada currently in the running to win one of 40 grants from State Farm Neighborhood Assist, and we can help decide who receives a grant by voting for our favorite.
40 Causes Will Get 25K
From now until April 22 you can vote for which causes you would like to receive $25,000. The 40 with the most votes will win! The applicants for 2013 are up on State Farm’s Facebook page and you can go and vote for your favorites (up to 10 votes per day) through April 22nd.

What a great program. I like when big companies give back. I will be sure to vote. thanks for sharing.
I don’t know if it’s officially a community project, but I would love to get some plays and musicals into our area. The nearest town that has plays is 1.5 hours away.
What a great program!
