Thumbs up Help ALS Ontario Paralyze Poverty--Need help again

Subject: Vote Today. Make a Difference!

Thank you for helping get Paralyzing Poverty to the semi-finals! To date, we are number 20 in the competition but we still need your vote every day to win $500,000 for ALS Ontario’s equipment program and new scholarship fund. We need to make Top 10 to move on to the Finals!

Imagine how your vote could help those who suffer the physical toll of ALS, or the 40% of victims who live in poverty and often don’t even have the money for their children’s education. Your vote can help restore dignity and choice to families who struggle daily with the burden of this disease.

Vote daily to make a difference in the lives of Ontario families living with ALS.

Here’s how:

1. Visit avivacommunityfund.org

2. Register your email address

3. Sign In and Vote Daily at PARALYZING POVERTY - ALS ONTARIO | Aviva Community Fund or type 7768 into the search engine. If you have voted before, you can find Paralyzing Poverty under ‘Ideas I Support’ once signed in.

4. Spread the Word to family, friends, colleagues and peers – use Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn from Paralyzing Poverty to help increase awareness.

Caroline, I think that us true everywhere. Other neuro diseases like MS and Parkinson's are more debilitating than fatal and sufferers tend to live longer post diagnosed than we do.
