to your enthusiastic response to our appeal for votes, we charged out of the gate ahead of organizations much larger than Literacy Connexus. It took a full 24 hours for two of those organizations to pass us up.The good news is that Better World Books will award a second grant
, not just one to the vote winner. The second grant, also for $7,500, will be selected by their own committee,and we believe we are the top contender
By continuing a strong show of voter support, you are helping to affirm our organization and our Books for the Border and Beyond
project. Keep voting every day and share the link with your contact lists. We haven't given up on winning the vote count, but even if we don't, your enduring support will impact the committee's decision for that second grant.
Another important thing you can do, if you haven't already, isplease leave a comment on our project page
. We love that we have more endorsements than any of our competitors. Thank you
! That, too, we believe, will work in our favor for the second grant.
After next week, things will return to normal. Thank you for joining us in this endeavor!
