Indulge me in a pleasant fantasy….
Surely you have seen this TV commercial?
Here is the truth: I probably am actually pretty boring, if the truth must be told. But there is one thing I do that is – interesting. keep your fingers crossed. I have entered a contest that will award $25,000 for my 2013 trip to teach in Nepal if I win.
Between now and October 30th, there will internet voting by the general public. that is where you come in. Though I have made four trips to teach nursing in Nepal, I have never done external fundraising. This seems like an interesting way to gather support…..The contest entry is on YouTube and you can see what I have proposed by going to http://youtu.be/9dj6MybnOWk
and yes, the contest is sponsored by the beer company that brews Dos Equis beer. The contest rules are very clear that promoting beer does not have anything to do with the contest. (very interesting indeed).
There is no “vote” button per se; I think the votes are tallied by the number of video views. so – please encourage as many people as you can, to view the video.
Even if I do not win I will still be returning to Nepal in 2013; and If I win, I will use the money in addition to what I was already planning to spend.
Please share widely!
