Default ~ Please vote for Shriners Hospitals for Children ~In 1st Place (again)ways to go yet

I work at the the International Headquarters for Shriners Hospitals for Children. We have been selected as one of the charities to participate in the 10 Million Charity Mile Giveaway program for US Airlines/Continental. The more votes we receive the more miles we get. Please vote for Shriners Hospitals for Children http://10millioncharitymiles.com before 11:59 p.m., December 31, 2011. Look for one of our Logos to vote for Shriners Hospitals for Children


Thank you for helping us increase our miles and helping with our transportation funds http://www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/



Contest Terms
Voting ends at 11:59 p.m., December 31, 2011. During this time frame, you may vote for one of the listed charities to increase the percentage of the miles that they receive.
You may vote once per day. Each charity is guaranteed to receive a minimum of 25,000 miles. The donated miles will be deposited by January 31, 2011.

I hope all 194 temples send out the e-mail .

If you come down, you will get a tour by a Shriner who works at Headquarters and they always come by my cube.

Obviously not amigo.

Both charities are absolutely fabulous. This is voting for the Shrine Hospital, and not a request for money. We Shriners support our 22 hospitals.

Not at all. Although Corvetteforum does an annual fundraiser for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital we have always encouraged members to post links to charitable events they are participating in. You will see members promoting Breast Cancer events, JDRF walks, American Cancer Society Events etc. You will also notice I have a sticky posted in all the regional sections telling people I will waive the sticky rules for shows that are for charity.
