Now you know I do not ask for much, faithful (or unfaithful) reader. Today I am asking for 2 minutes of your time that I know can make a huge difference!

Thanks to initial and very exciting enthusiasm, BOLD has quickly risen to become one of the top contenders for this week's finalist spots on ideablob's $10,000 contest! However, the last 36 hours will be the most intense. It isn't too late to log on to Registration is easy. It will take a minute. Don't tell me you don't have a minute. I am not the annoying guy on the corner asking if you have a minute for our earth, oh, and by the way, did you bring your checkbook? We just want your vote to support BOLD's quest for the March ideablob award!

As you may know BOLD is an organization that uses the arts to inspire social action, including supporting local communities for the last 2 years without asking for any financial contributions from our participants. I am the Performance and Talkback Coordinator for this fine, fine organization which has about 5 cents to it's name. With your vote that can change!

So, here are two simple things you can do to help:
My Idea
The contest is very democratic. The 2 ideas with the most votes by midnight on Friday, March 14 will become finalists in this month's contest, which will have it's final sprint from March 22-31.
Thank you! You rock!

Wow! What a great organization! I hope BOLD is successful with the Ideablob contest. Voting was super easy. BOLD seems way more deserving than a company making a CD or a website for looking for a roommate!

Good luck to BOLD! Go vote!

Hey!!! I just found your blog! Awesome! Glad to hear doula life is keeping you busy. We are getting busier down here, but still really breaking in the market in Corvallis. I'm also working on CBE training. You are doing Lamaze, right? I've chosen to go with ICEA, but think in the long-run I'll do Lamaze as well.

It'd be nice to stay in touch. I never heard if Chrissy had her baby (I'm sure she has by now). My little guy is 10 months old today! Crazy.

Anyway, I'm off to read your blog now. My blog is currently on hold as I finish my dissertation, but I hope to return to it soon.
