You guys know I'm in a bind or I wouldn't resort to posting out of topic....please help me if you can!

I  need some help ASAP. As in before midnigt EST Sunday...

I am involved with a wonderful local charity/ministry called DESTINY DIAPER BANK. What this non-profit does is provide diapers and other necessities to infants, todlers, special needs adults and the elderly at NO COST. They operate purely on donations. They do not draw salaries. They provide these serives to other non-profits as well.

Anyway, The weekend of September 11-13, is a global event called Twestival, which if you are familar with twitter, is a global event that is going to raise awareness on a gloabl level of fundraising but also smaller events in local cities will be held with local non-profits benefiting from fundraiing efforts of the local community. I have nominated DESTINY DIAPER BANK to be the beneficiary of the SW Florida efforts.

I am appealing to all of my networks to help vote for this incredibly worthwhile organization. Please help me garner as many votes as possible for DESTINY DIAPER BANK! Voting ends at Midnight tonight. All of the Non-Profits are worthy of winning --I have been involved in some way with each one as I am a professional marketer/networking event planner, specializing in fundraising. The reason I have put my support behind DDB is because they support the other organzations and as I mentioned, they receive no federal funding whatsoever, and really would benefit tremendously from being the receipient of Twestival SWFL.

If you would be so kind as to vote, the URL is: Link

Thanks so much for your consideration. It costs nothing to vote! Cheers!

Marci

If you're interested in getting involved in Twestivals in your own areas, just email or PM me for more info!

Thanks Debbie. I have only a half hour left. It's such a near and dear chairty to me. I know from losing my dad in Feb, that adult diapers alone can run a family $400 a month!!! In these financial times that is a serious hardship! This organization provides them at no cost....that is providing they have the donations to enable them to do so, and so far so good. This win would really help them out and also give them them the media exposure they need to get to the next level! They were just featured in USA Today 3x so it's a start! I work with them very closely, so I know how hard they work and sincere they are. Just amazing folks! Thanks for your support. I hope they win, but it's a close one!!!

The organization that is ahead of them at the moment, gets diapers FROM them...how's that for irony....
