VOTE! Microsoft Challenge for Change

Today I’m excited to be announced as one of 20 finalists in Microsoft’s Challenge for Change competition. This contest challenged students ages 18-25 to present ideas for change in communities around the world.

I have a simple request for your help over the next week. Please vote once a day for my entry and help support the efforts of so many people involved in improving healthcare, education and economic opportunities in rural Uganda! The five finalists receiving the most votes will each win $2,500 for their charitable project, and a three-week volunteer trip to Kenya in August. The voting runs through Monday, June 24, so after voting each day, please consider passing along this information to anyone who might support our efforts to build a Business and Training Center.  You can view my entry and video about Educational and Economic Change for Rural Uganda and vote online at http://bit.ly/11GV1Sg

Thanks for your support!
