Vote Joy!

Good morning, Mamas! You may have been wondering where the heck I've been lately.

Well, I'll tell you. I've been hard at work on several projects, the most exciting of which I want to share with you. Many of you know about my love for and support of Mariska Hargitay's Joyful Heart Foundation, whose mission it is to heal, educate and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence and child abuse.

Some of you may also know about the magazine I work on for Joyful Heart, entitled Reunion.

Well, we've entered Reunion into the Pepsi Refresh online grant contest. We've put our blood, sweat and tears--and our joy!--into winning this grant, so that we can bring our magazine, and the sense of healing and community it provides, to hundreds of thousands of survivors nationwide.

Why the heck am I telling you about this? Because the way Pepsi Refresh works is kind of like American Idol--except it matters. See, you need to vote online for Joyful Heart to get this grant. You can vote today and every day this month. It only takes a second. But in that second, you bring Joyful Heart closer to winning the grant. And you bring survivors a step closer to a sense of healing and possibility that Joyful Heart wants to bring.

So vote today. And every day this month.

Thanks, Mamas.

Will do! You might want to mention that after people click the "vote" link, they should click on the $250,000 tab to find Joyful Heart.
