Here is your chance to help someone else do some good. We received the following note from IAM member, Taryn:
I’ve entered myself into a contest to win a volunteering trip to Africa. I really, really love Africa and was able to travel there in February of 2009 where I spent four weeks in Tanzania as a volunteer teacher. I loved every moment of it and I’m dying to go back, but I simply can’t afford it. I was pretty excited when a friend told me about this contest so I entered right away. I entered around January 28th and voting had already started on January 3rd, but with some dedicated and extremely helpful friends I made it into the top 10 within two days! I have to stay in the Top 10 until February 7th at midnight in order to make it to the semifinals – at which point votes are re-set, and everyone must vote again like mad to get me into the Top 3. Then, a panel of judges decide who wins the trip. Voting is limited to one vote per email address; enter your address and then click the confirmation link in the email they send you. To vote for me, one may visit: votetaryn. I’ve also created a Facebook page that people may join to help spread the word, I post updates there as well and will send a reminder when (if) I make it into the Top 10 and votes have been reset for the semi-finals!
Let’s help Taryn win this so that she can help others. After all, it’s nice to be nice.
