I am the organizer of this group and have an unusual request.
For the last 6 months I have been living my life as Herbert the Astronaut and I've been wearing a space suit everywhere I go (work, shop, parties, snowboarding, the beach, Sun Run, ...)
(Whistler spring 2013:)
In January I signed up for a 6 month contest and to win it I decided to wear my astronaut suit for 6 months. I do this to show the world how passionate I am about going to space (and come back)... I really want to go and I know I can.
I'm very close to winning as I am ranked 11th out of 6000 by votes. If I reach 1st or 2nd place by the end of August I can go to Florida for astronaut training in December and hopefully launch into space mid next year.
Your support and kindness could be the difference maker and change my life forever. I truly hope you find it in your heart to help me out and vote for me. Voting takes only seconds.
You can vote for me at http://www.VoteForHerbert.com (until August 31st)
You can find out more about me (funny pictures, TV interviews, ...) by visiting my fan page: http://facebook/HerbertTheAstronaut
I am so close to winning but I can't do it without you. So please, please, please help me in achieving this big dream I have. I am forever grateful.
ps: your friends can vote too:) so feel free to share my voting profile and fan page with your friends and family:)
ps2: there are at least 3 'cheaters' in the top 5 that will be kicked out once the voting ends and this means that I'm technically in 8th place overall. yay.
I've had an amazing time these last 6 months. I've met so many amazing people, rock stars, pro athletes and ended up in the most bizarre places. I've been on TV(CTV News), radio (funny interview) and in news papers but in the end it is going to be you who makes the difference.
