(Reprinted from the home page. Tom Vanderwell has been talking about this grant for a week or so and I have been too busy to tell you about it. So I finally decided to just paste his blog here! Please share this on your Facebook page if you have one and ask your friends to share it on theirs. With everyone voting, we can easily be one of the top 10 qualifying organizations and have a chance to win a grant to help feed the kids!)
I’m happy to let you know that after just a week in the contest at http://givingoflife.com we are already in 10th place! That’s a great response.
But we need to do better. Based on the number of people who “like” God’s Littlest Angels on Facebook and the number of people on our e-mail lists, we can definitely get into the top three if not win the entire thing.
Here’s how the contest works again:
Go to http://givingoflife.com/browse/gods_littlest_angels_haitian_baby_ministry/ and vote for us. I’ve heard conflicting reports on whether you can vote again if you did before. I went and it has let me vote one additional time (3 days after my first vote). So it’s worth checking.
Tell 40 or 400 of your closest friends that it’s important that they go check in and vote again.
On November 8, the top 10 vote getters will be eligible for the final. No, we won’t have to sing and dance. The judges will then pick the three winners of the prizes. A reminder of what’s at stake:
$50,000 first prize – that would buy a year’s worth of formula.
$20,000 second prize
$10,000 third prize
There’s a lot at stake!
Thanks for helping us make a difference for the kids who need us.
