What we need now is an all out effort on the part of the Modest Needs community to launch us into one of the top two slots. I'm talking a full-on assault.
With your help, we can get money into the hands of those laid off in the Gulf in a hurry. Waiting for BP payouts or federal aid can take many months, if not years, but Modest Needs is primed and ready to not only double the amount of the grant, but see to it that those who risk losing their cars or their homes or worse get the aid they need right now.
It's so simple: Just vote.
The month of August is drawing nigh, and we only have 11 days left to secure this grant for those who so badly need it.
And after you vote, please share the link (http://gulf.refresheverything.com/gulfmodestneeds)to do so with everyone you know. Tell your mailman. Mention it to your classroom. Ask your son's football teams' parents. Go all out.
Because with just a few click which take just a few moments, you can make a profound difference in the lives of people who are already, slowly, being forgotten about by mainstream media. You can change lives. That's a profound thing.
If you are on Facebook, you can link your friends to vote. If you are on Twitter, you can link your followers to vote. If you blog, you can link your readers to vote.
Getting the word out is essential in propelling Modest Needs into one of the top two winning positions. That is where you come in.
The Modest Needs community impresses me every day with their commitment to helping and giving. It is you all who make it possible for Modest Needs to aid those in the midst of financial emergencies. It is your selflessness that makes every bit of this possible.
So, let's rally.
Let's warm up our clicking fingers, shake them out, then get ready to make an enormous impact of the lives of workers who could lose everything through no fault of their own.
Let's vote today. And every day. And tell the world to do the same.
Let's make something amazing happen.
