Let's Make A DealSubmitted by Kinsjon on Sun, 04/15/2012 - 11:48
Would my fellow Paulites mind if I had a little fun today? Would you like to join me?
My wife and I planned to donate $100, but waking up this morning I sensed Karma was in play,
Some of you may remember our daughter Emily and her "Ron Paul Is Our President" video from 2007. She was four then and eight now and firmly follows her mom and dads inaugural anticipation of our 45th President, Dr. Ron Paul.
Some of you may also recall, Emily started playing the drums two years ago.
On February 15th, Emily entered a drum contest for females called Hit Like A Girl 2012. Over 300 females from around the world entered the contest. Emily is the youngest competitor. After two months,public voting ends at 11:59 pm tonight, April 15th 2012.
Okay, so I just spent 30 minutes writing another three paragraphs of explanation, deleted it, and let's just cut to the chase.
My wife and I will donate an extra $1 for each vote she receives from now until 6:00 pm est, up to $250.00.
I hope you all will realize this is not a spam. The current vote leader has nearly 5,000 votes, Emily has 345. In our minds,
she is already a winner. She has been publicly recognized by the band Collective Soul, Sheila E and we even found her video
embedded on Sarah Palins video site and several Drum forums as well. We allowed her to enter this contest for several reasons and none of them were an expectation of winning.
Not only does this offer provide us with an excuse to dig a bit deeper, but it also provides us an opportunity to see our little girls face light up when she see's another 150 votes later today.
So if you have 5 minutes, please watch her rock the drums and if you enjoy her video, take another 2 seconds to click the "Vote For This Video" button. Nothing to fill out unless you wish to make a comment, just a simple click.
Thanks for playing.
Mom and Dad
