Putting the Fun in Fundraiser

Hey everyone, 

I've been pretty lucky in my career to work on a lot of cool websites. I've never spammed any of them to this list before, but this one is really special, super fun and I could use your help.

Gingercane is a competition for new home builders and community developers to design and build a mostly edible gingerbread house. This website collects and tracks voting for the ginger bread design competition. But wait! there's a catch!

The catch is really simple, the developers and builders have to get people out to donate to the Alberta Children's Hospitals (Stollery and ACHF) because every dollar donated is 1 vote for their gingerbread house. We call it, Donate to Vote. This is our third year. Last year there were 8,000 votes tallied, and that adds up to $8,000 for the kids.

What I'm asking everyone on this list for is one (or both) of two things. 

First, if you could help me spread the word on this contest, that would be awesome. Materials and information are available here

Secondly, if you wouldn't mind voting for your favourite gingerbread house by making a donation, big or small or even trivial, that would be even more amazing. You can vote for my team here:

I suppose if you're really keen and want to join the fray you're welcome to do so as well. Contact me directly for information on how to do that.

I'm available most readily via email at [address removed]

Thank you for reading this far. See you at the Hop in January!
