Help Zimkids win $10,000 just click your mouse

Dear Friends of Zimkids

  As I mentioned in our last update Zimkids has produced a video to compete for $10,000 in the Ford Focus Global Drive.  After much work it is now posted entitled “You Can’t eat a Ford Focus” (right now it’s the first in the upper left corner) and all we need is your vote by clicking on the “Love It” button so could you take the time to go to this site:  It has to be done by midnight December 31!


Click on the “Love it” button.

The more Love Its we get the better chance we have of winning. And we need A LOT!  We are up against some stiff competition.

So make it your New Year’s resolution to Click and please ask your friends and family to join in the clicking!!!

Here’s the blurb on the video:

Everyone has heard about the misery of Africa, about the violence, death and dying. But no matter the hardships, just like their counterparts in the rest of the world, African children like to have fun, especially the children we work with. Every one of them would love to have a shiny new Ford Focus since trekking kilometer after kilometer on foot to get water and food is exhausting. But what the children we care for really need is security – and we’re trying to provide them with that possibility by establishing a garden and chicken coops to help feed them. We at Zimkids have the land to do that, and with $10,000 from Ford, we can dig a well, install a solar-powered pump, build chicken runs and teach our kids to grow their own futures. And if we do our jobs right, in the future, they’ll be able to buy their own Ford Focus.

Thanks SO much!
