The latest voting tallies are up and as of Friday we were in 1st place by 151 votes - up over 800 votes in 1 week!!!!!!!! WTG CHERUBS family for pulling together and working hard for our babies and CDH Research and Support!!!!
It's been a long road in this contest. We have overcome a lot of obstacles and we're still on top! This is proof of what a few determined people can do with the help of friends and family for a great cause!!!!
We have posted flyers, e-mailed 1000's, messaged 1000's of people on Facebook, posted on sites and we have begged, begged, begged people to vote while also raising a ton of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awreness!
We're also throwing a "contest within a contest" on Facebook - giving people a chance to win great prizes while helping our cause and raising awareness!!!! But to be honest, I think the families just want to help out rather than win any prizes... they are all that compassionate and determined! But they're still going to win prizes. ;)

Here is an example event - http://www.facebook.com/ev
It is in memory of my son, Shane. I will recruit voters but won't be in this contest within a contest since I'm the President of CHERUBS and that wouldn't be fair. But all other members and volunteers can participate! :)
You are welcome to use any text or graphics off of this event page, CHERUBS site, our FB pages, etc that can help you in the contest!
