These are just a sample of the canes that my husband and I have created to give the cane user a custom ergonomic cane that provides comfort, stability and style, a just because you need a walking aide, doesn’t mean that you can’t have a sense of style with an artistically designed piece of functional art. More info at Big Stick Canes.
I am currently trying to get a project funded to allow me to create Custom artistic ergonomic fancy wood canes for wounded warriors : To do this, I need your help by voting for my project between May 1 – May 31, every day. [Note: I am currently awaiting selection for October/November/December 2011 and will post an update.]
The more votes, the more chance I have in winning and being selected for this grant. It is a lot of money that can go to helping our soldiers who gave their all and never looked back. Unfortunately, many of these men and women did not survive to come home, but the ones who have, may now have a severe physical handicap that they are expected to endure without much support.
My project Custom artistic ergonomic fancy wood canes for wounded warriors : is a small token towards showing appreciation to these wounded warriors that someone does appreciate their self-less devotion to our country and our freedom and even if i can’t heal their wounds, I can give them a nice cane that will help them through their daily hardships.
So, I ask you to help support our troops that have returned home unwhole by voting for my project. EVERY VOTE COUNTS! So please get friends, family, co-workers, anyone who you know who would care to help win this grant to support my project to VOTE!

6. Power Voting. Beginning at 12:00:01 p.m. (Noon) ET on May 1, 2011 and ending 11:59:59 p.m. ET on September 30, 2011 (the “Power Voting Period”), a Participant can use a Power Vote Code (as defined below) to receive extra Votes to vote for an idea on the Website. Once a Participant enters a Power Vote Code on the Website, the Participant must use all of those Power Votes associated with the Power Vote Code for one (1) idea by midnight (local time) of the day the Power Vote Code is entered. If you are not ready to cast your Power Votes, do not input your Power Vote Code. Rather, review the Website to find your favorite idea and then insert your Power Vote Code when you are ready to use your Power Votes. Once a Power Vote Code is entered on the Website, the corresponding Power Votes must be used by midnight (local time) on the day such Power Vote Code is entered for one (1) idea otherwise those Power Votes will be forfeited and will not be carried over for use on another day. A Participant may enter and use up to ten (10) Power Vote Codes per day during the Power Voting Period. Power Vote Code must be submitted as set forth herein on or before 11:59:59 p.m. ET on September 30, 2011.
6(a). What is a Power Vote Code? A Power Vote Code is a unique ten-character alphanumeric code (“Power Vote Code”). If you have a Power Vote Code, log on to the Website and look for “Activate Power Voting” in your lower toolbar at the bottom of the page or alternatively click on the Power Votes link in the main navigation to enter your Power Vote Code to see the number of Power Votes associated with that Power Vote Code.
6(b). How many Power Votes are available? The numbers of Power Votes available to Participants are 5, 10, 15, 25, 50 or 100. The number of Power Votes awarded will be randomly determined.
The odds of receiving a particular number of Power Votes depend on the number of Power Vote Codes received and the order in which they are received. The odds are based upon an estimated 3,000,000,000 Power Vote Codes produced; the actual number may vary depending upon the actual number of Power Vote Codes released into the marketplace.
6©. Where to Find A Power Vote Code. Look for a Power Vote Code on specially-marked 2 liter, 20 oz. bottles and 12-pack and 24-pack cans of PEPSI, DIET PEPSI and PEPSI MAX products. A Power Vote Code can be found, while supplies last, printed underneath specially-marked 2 liter and 20 oz. bottle caps, and printed on the reverse side of specially-marked 12-pack and 24-pack carton wraps (referred to as “Power Vote Code” in these rules). Not all products and package sizes may participate in all areas.
6(d). No Purchase Necessary. To receive one (1) free Power Vote Code without purchase, send a self-addressed, stamped envelope postmarked no later than September 7, 2011 and received by September 14, 2011 to Pepsi Refresh Power Votes, P.O. Box 760023, El Paso, TX 88576-0023. Limit one (1) free Power Vote Code per request per household per postmarked outer envelope. Residents of the state of VT may omit return postage. Pepsi-Cola Company (“Sponsor”) assumes no liability for lost, late, stolen, illegible, misdirected, mutilated, incomplete or postage-due mail or requests.
Again, I thank you for your help in making this dream and project come true!
