Vote for Banta Feeds/Christine Hisick

By: Contributor Last Updated: October 27, 2009

I need all of your help right now more than ever.  My family nominated me, and now I have been chosen as a Top 5 Finalist in the Standard Bank Searching for Local Heroes Contest that's sponsored by the Chicago Sun-Times.  The finalist with the most votes wins a $1,000 savings bond and $1,000 cash that will go to the charity of their choice.  The other 4 finalists win a $250 savings bond.

If you click this link, you can vote for Christine Hisick at the top left-hand corner. You can vote as many as 100 times a day per operating system.

I need your vote now more than ever, and I really need you to pass this email on to all of your friends too.  Winning this money is not for my personal purposes.  $1,000 is exactly the amount of money that I need in order to make Banta Feeds Food Drives an official 501(c)3 nonprofit agency.  Becoming an official 501(c)3 will allow Banta Feeds to apply for, and receive grants to help us operate, instead of the operating money coming out of my personal funds.  It would also allow us to help many more people to a greater degree, and even to eventually open up our own food pantry.  Banta Feeds has helped hundreds of people--now we need hundreds of you to help us.

Banta Feeds has been struggling to help the struggling in our area.  Now can you please help us by voting?  I would really appreciate all of your help, and if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email or call me. 

Thank you so much to all of you.  Please spread the word!
