PLEASE Vote For Me!!!

I am so excited to announce some very special news this morning!  As you all know, I have been participating in Share a Story, Shape a Future (SAS-SAF) this week, a blog tour that celebrates all things literacy -- especially inspiring and encouraging the love of reading in our children.  This is a topic that I am truly passionate about and I have had so much fun being involved again this year and being inspired by so many ideas!

Throughout the week, I have been Writing About Reading.  The hosts over at SAS-SAF have provided writing prompts and questions, wanting participants to share their ideas.  The exciting part is that there is a contest associated with this.  Five people have been nominated.  And, the prize?  Well, it is 50 multicultural books donated to a school or library of our choice!!  I am so excited to announce that I am one of these finalists!!  Yippee!!

Just to be fair, here are the five nominees and their corresponding posts that have been nominated:
I believe whomever may win is very deserving of this honor; however, I will admit that I would be awesomely tickled to win!!  I will even include my entry announcing the school of my choice . . .
I would love to donate the books to a small school in my local area called A Time to Discover. It is a small progressive home daycare and preschool. The owner and primary teacher is so passionate and the excitement and learning that is seen in the children (including mine!) is amazing. She has always dreamed of starting her own school, has used her personal savings to create the fabulous classrooms and purchase all of the educational materials, and wants to someday move to a larger facility in order to bring a wonderfully loving and genuine education, full of diversity to a larger population of children! I believe that this donation would contribute to her dreams as well as the children's!! :)
Please take a few moments to vote.  The poll is now open and will remain open for voting until 12:00 Noon (EST) tomorrow, Saturday, March 13, 2010.  Winners are announced on Monday morning!
