Please consider casting your vote…

Two opportunities have come up for you to vote online to show your support for something. One is a very worthy organization. The other is shameless self-promotion.

The first is from our friends at CDS Monarch on Hard Road. They recently announced that their agency is a finalist in a contest run by the Home Depot Foundation, with the winner receiving a $25,000 grant.

Here’s the explanation form the email I received:

CDS Monarch, Inc. in Rochester, N.Y. is enlisting area residents to help the organization win a $25,000 The Home Depot gift card by voting daily throughout August in The Home Depot Foundation’s second annual Aprons in Action Facebook contest. Voting begins Aug. 1, 2012 and runs through Aug. 31, 2012 at If CDS Monarch receives the most votes during the month they will win the $25,000 prize to help fund necessary remodeling projects at The Nucor House, a residence for Veterans in the Warrior Salute™ program, and will have the opportunity to compete for the grand prize of $250,000 at the end of the year-long program.

That would be pretty cool. They’re only up against three other agencies, so let’s get voting, Webster!
