Sue sent out a message to her group asking only that they pass this on and go vote. Her message :
One of the roles I am most passionate about in my 1st life – is the work I do with an organization called “Grassroot Soccer” founded by my friend, Ethan Zohn, with his prize money when he won “Survivor Africa”. GRS is an incredibly innovative AIDS advocacy program for kids in Africa & Ethan is one of the most selfless people I know. While he is now battling a rare form of cancer for the 2nd time, with chemo failing, instead of thinking of himself he’s moving mountains for others again. He’s one of the 5 finalists in “GQ Better Men Better World Search” & will donate the $10,000 to GRS if he wins. Voting ends tomorrow. Would you take a moment to simply click to vote for him?
Here are ways that you can get there: http://www.thegentlemensfund.com/final_vote.asp or through http://grassrootsoccer.org — the Grassroot Soccer front page — which has Ethan’s pic and a note linking here, also taking you through: http://www.grassrootsoccer.org/2009/10/05/ethangq/ Thanks so much for the notes coming in from people saying they’ve voted! I’m so very, very grateful for your help with this. Keeping a good thought for all of you
I’d be so grateful if you’d help Ethan help kids by clicking, sharing the link in your blogs, tweets, anywhere with eyes. You don’t have to be big to make a difference. Very gratefully your’s — Sue Stonebender.
