Your Vote Count

Now in this election season


everyone is asking for your

vote…but we are asking you to

vote two times a day until the end of

September. Pepsi Corporation has a

contest online where non-profits

from across the nation submit, for a

grant. We the people vote and the top

two in each category will win

$250,000. Our own My Father’s

House has submitted an entry and

THEY NEED OUR VOTE – NOW!!

Afew of us that have become

obsessed with this, but we need

more people voting! As of

yesterday we had moved to 139th

place from 165th place around a

week ago. And while we have a

ways to go. There are over 40 some

thousand households in East County.

I have relatives voting as far away as

New Orleans (thank you GiGi!).

I challenge you to think of creative

ways to get the vote out for this great

cause!! Next time you are with a

group, get everyone to text!!

Vote once online each day: Go

to http://pep.si/chldr7. Then

vote again by texting each day

Text* 102474 to Pepsi (73774).

Wouldn’t it be wonderful if our

community was able to win

the $250,000 to help

subsidize shelter for those in need

this cold winter? Everyone can help

get the word out, if you have any

questions please call me

503-665-0102 or e-mail me at

bess@greshamford.com.

A little time is such a

powerful thing to give!!
