Vote to help a town win a grant to build a special needs baseball field...

A fellow CTMH sister is asking for help to get votes for her home town to build a special needs baseball field and playground.  Pepsi Co. is giving out $50k grants to the top 10 projects - hers is currently 45.  Voting is daily through June 30th.

To vote, go to this link:

Why am I taking time to send you this?  Because for a couple of years my youngest child required the use of a wheel chair to get around.  While Devin doesn't currently use one, the experience has given me a deep appreciation of the small inconveniences and difficulties having a child with special needs brings to every day activities.  Yes, pushing a wheel chair through bark mulch is difficult - more so than pushing a stroller as the chair has a different center of gravity. 

I hope you'll all take the five minutes or so to send in a vote for the next three days.  What a wonderful gift this town is trying to give to its children!  Thanks so much for your help!
