Random Tuesday

First of all ~ I hate blogging when I ask people to do something (i.e. donate money to a cause). I'm not asking for donations, but I am asking for your votes. Below is an email I received this evening from a friend:

Dear Family & Friends,

Over the last two years Defining Media LLC has been producing the documentary Defining Beauty: Ms. Wheelchair America. The team is now heading into the final stages of post-production for the documentary and has been selected as a finalist in the Pepsi Refresh Challenge for the month of May. They’re in the running for $25,000 in finishing funds that will be the needed financial push to bring this film to reality – bringing all the important messages that Ms. Wheelchair America stands for to the greater public.

This is the final week of the Pepsi Challenge and they/we need your help. Right now DEFINING BEAUTY is ranked 117th, they need to drop to the top 10 to win. In the first week they joined the challenge they went from 224th to 80th in three days so I really believe that they can get into the top 10, but only if all our contacts are tapped.

First, please register and vote here:


Then, VOTE EVERY DAY until May 31st.

Finally, send this message to all those that you think are in support of advocacy and change for the disabled and able-bodied communities across the United States

I was part of Ms. Wheelchair Nebraska for 5 years before moving to Kansas. It is so near and dear to my heart and these women are the most AMAZING people I've ever met. If you'll remember, I blogged about my friend, Crystal, eons ago. Your votes are appreciated! I had so much on my mind tonight, but I so need to find my pillow. Good night, all!
