I don't know about you, but many times, I don't feel so good about voting where political elections are concerned. I often feel like I need to hold my proverbial nose and just vote for the least unappealing choice.

But today is different!

I'm asking you to vote for something you can actually smile about.

I'm asking you to take only one minute and vote for an organization that is changing lives. Your vote is very important and will help SOLE HOPE win a grant that will help them to make an even bigger difference in the lives of children, widows, and families in Uganda and Zambia.

Here's what SOLE HOPE has to say about what they do:

"Millions of rural children are living with jiggers in their bodies. They are unable to walk or even work and this results in trauma, isolation which leads to low self-esteem. This is a problem that has been overshadowed by other plights, but can not be ignored. Sole Hope provides a tangible way to prevent this parasite while paying the workers a fair wage to complete the closed toe shoes that will be given to children where it is rare for them to own a pair."

I've posted a video and a link to their website below that will tell you more about SOLE HOPE. After you've learned more about their work, I hope you'll visit and vote for SOLE HOPE. This is one vote you can feel good about.

Oh! And unlike our American political process, you can not only vote more than once, you are encouraged to do it once a day til the voting ends.
