vote to cure SMA, part 2

If you haven't used all your five votes on Facebook for Chase Community Giving and haven't yet voted for The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, watch this video.

Now will you? Please?

They're currently in sixth place and only the top six get money. The top place vote-getter will receive one MILLION to fund research. Please help these precious babies. It's so easy.

Here's the link to vote:

Thanks :)

Valerie said...

that is heart-breaking.... all the babies, so precious, and far too young....

can we use all 5 votes for this charity? after I voted once, the vote button seems to have disappeared so i wasn't sure if i could vote for the same one over & over?

Lucy and Ethel said...

Thanks for the PR and voting!!!

Valerie, I wish all 5 could be used for the GSF, but only one vote per person is allowed for an organization. Major bummer.

We are closing in on 5th place, thanks to the efforts of LOTS of folks!!!

Thanks so much, Patrice :)

I voted for this tonight. I was trying to decide which ones to vote for so thanks for giving me a heads up on one that was important.

Sara said...

I have tears in my eyes as I type, THANK YOU SO MUCH for posting this!! I emailed you about it, and I was so emotional that night (so sorry) I couldn't get my words together to convey the message I needed to properly.
Facebookers only have 5 votes to use, and only ONE can go to each charity (of their choice) - to answer Valerie's question above. PLEASE use one of them for GSF! If/WHEN they win the $1 million, ALL of that money will go toward research and awareness. My dear friend lost her 5 month old son to SMA, and precious Eli changed my life forever. I will fight along side her until this horrible disease is cured, which, hopefully, won't be long.
Thank you to ALL who have voted!

Thank you so much Patrice, again, for posting this. If anyone knows how heartbreaking it is to lose a child, it's you. And to watch one suffer, it's you. God bless you sweetheart!

From the bottom of my heart, xoxox, and much love~

P.S. Sorry if I am being WAY over emotional, I just really appreciate each and every vote that comes through <3

Thank you so, so much for such amazing support. I can not begin to tell you how much the entire SMA community appreciates the support and as a mom I really don't have the words to express my gratitude to Sara for reaching out, to you for posting about this, and to your readers for voting -- beyond thank you!!!

I voted and shared it with my facebook friends. I hope they are able to get a cure with the money they win!
