Users of Facebook can justify playing Farmville or Nightclub City by pausing long enough to help out the San Marcos Youth Service Bureau (YSB) and vote for the bureau at the APX Alarm listing.
The YSB is competing in a funding competition sponsored by APX Alarm, which is asking Facebook users to vote for the organization they would like to see get funding from the APX Gives Back Project.
Here’s how it works. If you are a Facebook user, you may go to the APX Alarm profile, follow the prompts and then vote for San Marcos Youth Service Bureau. Be warned that you will be asked to allow APX Alarm access to send you messages, just as when users are asked the same question when starting a Facebook game. Users will have to use their own judgment to determine if this is acceptable to them.
Users can remove APX Alarm from their accounts after the voting is through on Aug. 22 by going to their application settings and deleting APX Alarm. Users are allowed to vote once per day every day.
The San Marcos Youth Service Bureau is a private, non-profit agency that provides free after-school programs to youth ages 11-17. The YSB offers after-school tutoring in general subjects, along with recreational activities and games. The service is free to students of San Marcos CISD.
