Dear Friend,

We are in 8th place and have to get in the top five.

The Santa Fe Civic Housing Authority has entered a video contest to win $15,000 worth of playground equipment. We were in the top 10 finalists out of 116 entrants, now the 5 top vote getter’s will get the prize money. We want to be one of the top winners. Please Vote every 24 hours from now till May 10th and ask everyone you know to do so too. We are going against stiff opposition and need everyone to pitch in. Please vote and get out the vote.
Voting is now live on the KaBOOM! website. Click here to vote:

David,
To help us remember to vote, could you bump this every day to bring it back to the top of the watch list?

Thanks
