Vote Early. Vote Often. Vote for Joseph Arthur Middle School!

Tags: , , ,

The staff (me) of gets lots of requests to promote education products, businesses, etc.

I usually turn these down based on principal (get it… principal). Mostly, I turn them down because people won’t send me free stuff.

But today I am going to make an exception. Today, I am going to use the Blog for good instead of evil. Today, I am doing something nice for the kids.

An ex-colleague of mine is now principal of Joseph Arthur Middle School in O’Fallon, Illinois. They have have applied for the Good Foods Garden grant provided by Reader’s Digest/Food Network and have been lucky enough to be chosen as one of eight finalists in the nation.

The most votes through a public website will determine who wins. So, they need your help.

Please vote as many times as you please (no limit… it’s just like politics in Chicago).

If you don’t do it for me… do it for the kids.

And I will be patitently waiting for my brand new XL Joseph Arthur Middle School t-shirt.

    @Gina Bergman, Thanks for the vote and thanks for visiting the blog.

    It would be nice if everyone who voted left a short comment.

    Between your vote and my 3 votes today, we helped the students a little.

    Thanks again and please come back.

    Nope, still 3 votes. I’ve tried the link 5 times in the past 30 minutes and it’s unavailable.

    Thanks again for your help with the contest. We WON!!! We are very excited and appreciate your help. Scotty is very excited and is already trying to figure out a way to grow a monster tomato plant in the greenhouse. Taylor thinks it’s silly I sat around the house for hours at a time pushing the “Vote” button and the “back” button hundreds of times a day. But, she is thirteen now (June 23rd) and everything is silly to her. Your t-shirts and other cool Joseph Arthur stuff is on the way.
