      Thank you soooo much if you have already voted for us on the Giving Of Life website!  

      If you have not done so, we would GREATLY appreciate it if you would take a moment to go to the Giving Of Life website - - find Finishers Project in the Education and Training Campaign, and cast a vote for us. Take a look at the recent note from the Giving Of Life staff:


Hello Friends!

      May 22 is almost here! That means you only have about three more weeks to vote for the ministries you care about in this first season of Giving of Life 2012!

      Here's a reminder for how the voting process works. You may vote up to five times:

  • One vote automatically provided when you visit the site
  • Two votes for creating a Giving of Life account
  • One vote for providing us with your Facebook URL
  • One vote for providing us with your Twitter handle

      And remember, GLG 2012 doesn't automatically award grants to the ministries with the most votes.

      The donor(s) for each ministry category-in conjunction with the Giving of Life founders - will choose one of the five ministries with the most votes (in each category) to be the grant recipient.  Recipients will be announced June 4.

      These ministries need your help to keep doing incredible work and reaching more people! So be sure to vote and spread the word!

       Excited to be on this journey with you,

      - The Giving of Life Team
