Change Agents Unite: official rules

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. VOID WHERE PROHIBITED

Change Agents Unite is a separate site (if you use other FMYI sites) provided to connect ORGANIZATIONS with challenges (problems, tasks, questions) with USER (people who volunteer solutions and brainstorm answers), for the good of people, planet and profit. SPONSORS contribute prizes to help motivate Users to solve problems. Award recipients will be selected by representatives of the Organization who, in their opinion, contributed in a way that was most helpful to solving the challenge. The site is hosted by FMYI Inc. The following rules apply only to this specific site, and not to other FMYI sites that Users may have.
