Day Three – Brighter Planet VOTES NEEDED

Day three- The status report is better today.  We still need your votes at http://brighterplanet.com/project_fund_projects/100

REGISTER AND VOTE FOR adapting to Climate Change Native Habitat and Community Garden.  We have 68 votes as I write.  I am pleased.  Only 32 more votes and we’ll be at the 100 mark.  This is a landmark because it means we’ll be in the running to apply again if we don’t reach our goal this time.

We have 12 more days to go and we are campaigning for our cause.  Anything can happen. Just look what happened today.  We received a grant for $250 from Leopold Education Project a Program of Pheasants Forever.  This will help fund a raised bed garden for Girl Scout Troop 4362, Minnesota & Wisconsin Lakes and Pines in Shell Lake.  

Expect the unexpected to happen in life.  Things could change over the next 12 days.  Happy Tonics could gain the notice of some large environmental group that can sway votes our way.  One can only hope.  Remember change has always come from the ground up.  Here’s your chance to prove it.  Thanks!

Till tomorrow insectamonarca friends,

Let’s face it some folks have big guns with bigger networks in larger cities with a bigger VOTER base.  We’re in Northern Wisconsin with a population base in Shell Lake of little over 1,300 souls.  Is it any wonder we are falling behind?  Those of you who are watching the process can make a BIG DIFFERENCE.  Please REGISTER and VOTE for Climate Change Native Habitat and Community Garden Shell Lake

 I feel honored when I learn who is a member of the Project Selection Team.  To even think that our grant proposal is being considered makes me humble.
