(Fwd) thanks + hoping you'll encourage your readers to vote in


Just got an email from Charles Best, founder of Donors Choose.org, that
website I mentioned the other day, that I wanted to pass along. They have
a special project they're trying to get completed, and there's only a
couple more days left.

Hope you'll consider helping out -- I don't have an AmEx card, myself.

Thanks!

Grizzly,

Thank you so much for participating in the DonorsChoose.org Blogger
Challenge! Eleven days into the campaign, bloggers like you have
channeled support to 27,147 kids in public schools.

I have a big favor to ask: Would you consider encouraging your readers to
vote for us in the AmEx Members Project <http://www.membersproject.com/> ?

The contest ends at midnight EST on Monday, so we've got less than 48
hours
left to go. 1st place comes with $1.5 million, and 2nd place comes with
$500,000-all of which would go to classroom projects on our site. In this
economy, winning those funds could be critical for the students and
teachers we serve.

I hope you'll check out the video for our Members Project entry, which
might inspire extra enthusiasm for your giving page in the Blogger
Challenge:

Here's the link to vote for our entry, "Help 100,000 Children Thrive in
the
Classroom"

You need an AmEx card to vote, but you don't need an AmEx card to tell all
your friends to vote.

Thank you for considering it!

Sincerely,
Charles

Charles Best
