CURED - please vote daily!

UPDATE: We did it! CURED was in 2nd place for the Central region when the contest ended, and won the $100,000 grant! Thank you SO much for your help!

Are you on Facebook?  Do you have a spare 30 seconds a day to vote for a good cause? 

If so, we need your help!  Vivint is giving away LOTS of money to a select few charities.  And we, the general public, get to decide who gets the money! 

There are MANY great charities on the list, but we hope you'll choose CURED.  This non-profit organization working toward a cure for Eosinophilic diseases. 

Keandre has this serious and painful disease.  It has been life-altering for him.  It has changed who he is as a person.  If you have followed our journey at all, you know that he has had a rough go of it.  We are so very thankful to say he is finally on the path to healing, but we have a long way to go still.  It has taken daily medication and strict avoidance of 21 different foods (dairy, eggs, nuts, wheat, soy, fish, chicken, get the picture?) to even start him on the right path.  And he will continue to need regular endoscopies, medications, and this very strict diet indefinitely.

If you know Keandre (or another child with an Eosinophilic disease), we'd appreciate you voting in his honor. 
Here is the link to vote. (And here is where Vivint explains how to vote.)
