Please?

Dear Readers,
The nonprofit organization I started, Faces of Loss, Faces of Hope, is in the running for a $25,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project! I can't even explain how awesome it would be to get this funding--we'd really be able to take the work we're doing to provide connection and support to babyloss parents to the next level. Plus, winning a national grant like this would open up a ton of opportunities to spread awareness and get our message out to a huge audience.

Anyway, to get this grant, we have to get enough votes from the community during the month of July to put us in the top 15 in our tier. Right now, we're hovering right around #32. Can you help?

The first time you vote, you have to set up an account, which takes about a minute, but after that, it seriously takes less than 30 seconds to go on and vote everyday. Obviously, this is incredibly near and dear to my heart, and I would SO appreciate it if you would vote in honor of Stevie!

Here's how:


1) Follow this link: http://pep.si/kzOEpR
2) Click the button that says ‘vote for this idea’
3) You’ll be prompted to either login or sign up for a new voting account (this just takes a few minutes and a valid email address, or you can even login using your facebook account!)
4) VOTE!
5) Repeat once a day, every day!
6) You can also ‘power vote’ for us if you have a ‘power voting code,’ found on specially marked Pepsi products.

If you vote, please comment here and let me know! You can also email info@facesofloss.com with 'I voted' in the subject line to be entered into weekly drawings for Faces merch :)
Thanks again, as always, for all your support!
Love,
Kristin

Glad you included info on POWER VOTING! We drink diet pepsi like our life depends on it. From the 2 cases we had waiting for the recycle bin I was able to give 15 votes! I'll check in the garage later to see if there is more---judging by my husband's garbage taking out skills, I'm sure there is!

Hi Kristin,
I voted and will do so again every day until the competiton closes.
I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your blog which I've been reading regularly and for establishing faces of loss, faces of hope. It's a place I've always felt welcome and not alone. It kind of gave me comfort to know that there are so many more women (and men) suffering through the loss of a baby and not only me.
Thanks for making such a difference for ,and because of, Stevie.
All the best from Germany

Hi Kristin,
I don't know how your blog works in the sense of do you get an email if someone posts a comment to an earlier blog? I've been reading your blog over the past few days and got to your post of 2 July 2010 where you talk about MTHFR gene and the last comment is from a woman in Bulgaria which was posted just two days ago. I don't know what to say to her and just wanted you to know so that you might post a reply as I think it would mean more coming from you and that you would know better what to say. She is a young woman who has I think had three miscarriages and said she felt like putting a gun to her head if she can't be a mother.
