You can vote through August 31, 2009, but I would really appreciate it if you just clicked on over and voted today. Like right now. While it's on your mind.
But wait—there's more!
These are also the final days you'll be able to vote to make my sister-in-law Angelou, founder of the environmental non-profit Greening Youth Foundation, a Cox Conserves Hero. If she wins, she'll get a $5,000 grant that she'll use to expand Greening Youth's programming, which already touches the lives of a diverse crowd of elementary school-aged kids who participate in her in-class projects, school-wide recycling programs, and after-school environmental club. That's to say that Angelou wouldn't be the only winner here—children all across Georgia would gain from her honor.
Do Angelou and me a solid: Vote for her at www.CoxConservesHeroes.com.
You can vote through August 31, 2009. But I'd appreciate it if you just went on ahead and hooked a sistah up right now while it's on your mind. CLICK HERE TO MAKE ANGELOU A NATIONAL HERO!
Thank you for all you do to support MyBrownBaby! Next week, look for the blow-by-blow on my visit to the General Mills headquarters and the Betty Crocker Kitchens. (Here's a little nugget to hold you over until Monday: The PRESIDENT of General Mills' snack division AND the manager of the prestigious Betty Crocker Kitchens are both sistahs—way to go with the diversity, General Mills... we see you!)
Have a fantastic weekend!
