I have a favor to ask everyone, please...
Could you take a moment out of your day to read the information I'm passing along and click the link below? I posted something about Seedlings nearly two years ago if you'd like more background. Debra Bonde's non-profit organization in Livonia, MI depends entirely on fundraisers and donations. Seedlings provides braille books to blind children and works to promote the cause of braille literacy and the $10,000 prize money would really help her continue her work. Voting ends Sept. 7th. Thank you.
