Wanna help?

Burger King is doing something I feel is pretty neat. They have decided to give away $100,000 to non-profits in the New Orleans area, splitting it up with $50,000 to the top named non-profit, and splitting the rest incrementally so that the top ten nominated non-profits will each recieve something. If you want to help here's the web site. I had no idea big corporations were still interested in helping out around here, and I think it's a really important step towards regaining a solid footing. We've come a long way, but there's just so much more we need to accomplish.

What would my non-profit of choice be? Well, I've been nominating our hospital, Ochsner Clinic Foundation. It's been a big part of my life, especially recently, with PeeWee's medical issues. So you can nominate your favorite non-profit or mine! And spread the word if you will, you can nominate once each day, through May 15th. Then the finalist voting will begin June 5th. Thanks ahead of time for taking the time to vote and make a difference around here!
