Here's the scoop. Chase Bank is giving away $5.5 million dollars to non-profits in a facebook campaign. All you have to do is vote once - the non-profit with the most votes gets $250,000, second through fifth place gets $100,000 each! Girl Power 2 Cure is in the running currently we are in 11th place! If we win the $250,000 we will put the money into our Garden of Hope Campaign and grow it to $2.5 million for Rett Research!.
This money WILL change our daughters lives!
The thing that makes my stomach turn: there are 2 non-profits ahead of us - an organization for bears and another one for blind cats -
Yes, I said bears and blind cats have recieved more votes than our children.
I'll give you a minute...........
Sooo, I am reaching out to everyone in the blogging community and asking for you to please, please post to your blog and ask your readers to vote for Girl Power 2 Cure! This IS a FB campaign so they will need to have a FB account.
