If everyone in the book club goes and votes right now, there's another 1000 YES VOTES for ISF! Let's all do it now! Thanks for the link and the heads up, Debby. You're on it!

Debby (DebbyFeo) Voting ends Sept. 19th. If there is a tie, the charity, who received the most votes first, wins. $250,000 would be a big help to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation: https://www.facebook.com/ChaseCommuni...

Debby (DebbyFeo) Kim, thank you for all your help to get out the vote!

Oh yeah , I think it's rather odd :(

Moreover, if each of these 2,641,871 followers donated $1, ISF could reach easily at least half of what is needed!

I understand perfectly that people cannot follow Ian's tweets all the time and that, for some of them, also $1 can be too much, but.... to those who can afford it, come on!!!

Debby (DebbyFeo) Hi, Paola We've been trying to get the followers on Twitter to realize it only takes a few minutes to vote, but could mean a huge grant to ISF. There are so many ways to help out, that don't involve any money.

Yes! Yes! Yes! There are so many ways to help that don't cost a cent. People are seeing this more and more, jumping in with their energy, something we all have an infinite amount of! The ultimate sustainability!

Thank you!

Paola (Paoletta76) Of course! ;)

Debby (DebbyFeo) As of 11 pm on the 18th, ISF was in 4th place with 21,498 votes. Leader had 90,334. If ISF remains in top ten, should get $100,000 from Chase. We trended Tuesday. Will probably try to trend again today, Sept. 19th, last day, but don't know what time. Voting ends tonight just before midnight.

Debby (DebbyFeo) Just got "jailed" on Twitter for tweeting too much about the vote. Other volunteers are still trying to trend.

Debby, you did so much to get and keep ISF in the top 10! There is much gratitude flowing your way!

$100,000.00 is no small potatoes. This is a victory! For the people who voted their butts off, all of ISF community is deeply grateful!
