Hey Readers! I am not big into promotions (mostly because no one wants me to promote anything), but this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. The founder is a most excellent friend of The Crazy Fat and her foundation is worthy and trustworthy. Think about voting, I know I did!!
I do not normally like to send out superfluous emails on behalf of Friends of Belwop asking for donations, etc, but this email is worth it--and I'm not asking for any money :) I wanted to let you know that Belwop is in an incredible position to potentially win $50,000 to help fund a brand new facility/orphanage in Nyeri, and all you have to do to help is VOTE! Cultivate Wines is running a competition called "The Give" which awards $50,000 to the nonprofit that garners the most votes over an 8 week period, and we have entered Belwop into the competition. They tell us that we have a good shot of winning the grand prize, but we need your votes to do it!
Please visit our page on the Cultivate site at http://www.cultivatewines.com/cause/5820/\ to submit a vote for us and watch an INCREDIBLE 2.5 minute film clip about Belwop that was recently produced by friends in California. You can vote once a day, every day, for the next 8 weeks--and if possible, we would love it if you would do that!
Please also forward this email to any lists or friends as you feel comfortable and/or post on your Facebook wall. We are in 1st place at the moment with 14% of the total votes, but we've got to keep it up for the next 8 weeks! This $50,000 could make a HUGE difference for the kids at Belwop, and anything you can do to help us will be much appreciated.
If you'd like a daily reminder to vote, you can join the Facebook event "A Vote a Day can win $50,000 to build shelter for the babies in Kenya!!" and click "attending", and you will receive a reminder once a day.
Thank you for spreading the word about this big opportunity for us; the 3 seconds it will take you to vote could make all the difference in the lives of the orphans at Belwop!
