Today is the final day for voting over on Facebook. I am amazed at how this week has progressed; apparently even Joe Jonas is supporting us on his personal Facebook page! Right now we have just hit 48,000 votes and seem to be in a good spot to win $100,000 today. It brings tears to my eyes to think about how many people we have reached this week. Just the awareness is worth all the effort we've put into posting, emailing, tweeting, and then crying as the votes come in.

I had the highlight of my week happen last night. I was on Facebook really late and saw Cake Wrecks post the link to the beautiful video that was made for the campaign and ask their followers to vote for us. I was FLOORED because if you know me, you know I LOVE that blog. They have about 80,000 followers over on Facebook so that was awesome. Then, I see that they tweeted the link to their 1.2 million followers! Umm...super Wow, right? I was trying to figure out how they had heard of us. I had sent off an email earlier in the week asking for their support, but I honestly didn't even think it would be read. To my surprise, Jen from over there not only read it and supported us, but she even wrote me back to let me know she had done that for us. I was totally freaked out over that one. So in summary, if you don't go over to see the wrecks, go! I think you will get some serious laughs. (The link has been on my sidebar for ages, so you can just use it to go visit them.)

Hopefully I will be reporting back with some good news tonight. We can still use votes to make sure we stay up in one of the money positions, so if you haven't voted, please do before midnight tonight (that's eastern time!).

Well, I'd say you did a great job with Cake Wrecks!!! It is a fun site, and I could easily spend more time there than I have... which is about 0 at the moment. But I know where to find it :)
