I've been pretty terrible about updating this blog (I decided quite some time ago that I'd only write when I felt motivated, and lately the spirit has not moved me to write).
But I did want to post this appeal from Jill Sieder of the East Atlanta Kids Club.
As the East Atlanta area has increasingly gentrified, many of us have forgotten that our neighborhood, and the immediately surrounding neighborhoods, are still majority poor and minority. The East Atlanta Kids Club has performed a wonderful service in working with the disadvantaged children and youth in the area to make sure that they don't fall through the cracks.
I'm going to post the note from Jill in it's entirety. PLEASE take a few minutes to register online and vote for their project. The money will be well spent.
If you've already voted for our $10,000 idea this week, thank you!
If you haven't, please vote now!
We're in the final showdown of the national contest on Ideablob.com
with our idea to support the East Atlanta Kids Club's after-school
programs. The final round of voting will last until this Sunday, Nov.
30, at 11:59 pm.
We're currently in 3rd place and need more votes to catch the leader (!)
Please click here to vote for our idea:
If you voted for this idea before - but not this week, during the
final showdown, please vote again -- this week is when it really
counts. If you haven't voted yet, you'll need to register. It takes 2
minutes, tops, and you won't be spammed or asked to buy anything.
Then please send this link on to your friends, family, neighbors,
coworkers, and get them to vote, too! If you have any forums like
Facebook or Myspace, a blog or an online forum that you can post on,
please do. These vitally needed funds are worth the effort!
