You may have noticed that Sarah and I have been promoting our latest effort to help out the folks on the Pine Ridge Reservation. In fact, if you follow our Facebook page, you may have noticed quite a bit of promotion. No, we’re not trying to practice the sublime art of web-based mind-bending coercion on you. It’s just the nature of what this promotion is about: helping an organization win the competition for the Pepsi Refresh Project $250K Grant to build sustainable housing on the rez.
A few years ago we ran several successful fundraisers for the Pine Ridge Reservation and were rather amazed by how generous and supportive MT readers were. This time around, we aren’t asking you to donate money to the cause, just a little bit of your attention... every day (until we say stop). What we want to do is exercise the overwhelming might of our Swarming Minions™ to secure the donation someone else’s (Pepsi’s) money to the cause. Of course, we are benevolent overlords and would never ask a minion to support a cause they don’t believe in, but if you feel that this is something you would like to support, we gleefully invite you to join the swarm and vote every day for the cause via this handy portal:
Why every day? I guess it’s one way for them to gauge the commitment voters have to their cause. Causes who’s supporters don’t vote everyday will probably lose to causes who’s supporters do. So that’s why we’ve been bugging you about it.
Thank you in advance for your support and your votes. We’ve already helped them move up in the ranks from #142 to #76, which shows just how much of a difference MT fans can make. This is a cause that both Seraphim and I feel strongly about, so thank you very much for your support and consideration of this cause.
