Subject: SFA falls behind in voting - We need your support now!
Dear friends and allies,
After enjoying a lead for a few days, the Student/Farmworker Alliance has fallen
slightly behind in the voting for this month's Myspace Impact Award
(http://www.myspace.com/impactawards), going up against an organization with
about 5,000+ more "Myspace friends" and who knows how much more resources and
time than we have right now to put into this.
So, today, we're calling on all of you to help us out.
For all the critiques of Myspace, this is still an incredible opportunity for us
and the CIW: We would receive some sorely-needed funding (the winner gets a
$10,000 cash prize), and also, if we win, secure a featured place on the
MySpace site for a month which would exponentially increase the exposure of
SFA, the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, and the Campaign for Fair Food to the
millions of people who regularly use MySpace.
We need to pull out all the stops. Here's some ways you can help us:
-Forward this message to friends, family, and listservs
-Post something about SFA's candidacy and the link to the Impact Awards page
and/or the SFA myspace page on your blog or website:
-If you're on mypace already, post bulletins, send messages to your friends, and
VOTE ONCE A DAY, EVERYDAY, from now through Friday September 21
-If you're not on myspace, use those extra email addresses you have laying
around (or some new ones you can grab from places like yahoo and hotmail) to
create a mypace profile and vote for us (*wink, nudge*)
Below is a message you can post as a Myspace bulletin.
Vote now!! --> http://www.myspace.com/impactawards
Student Farmworker Alliance has been nominated for this month’s MySpace Impact
Award! Vote today by clicking here: http://www.myspace.com/impactawards
After being in the lead for a few days, we've fallen slightly behind. WE NEED
YOUR SUPPORT TODAY AND EVERYDAY THROUGH THE REST OF THIS WEEK!
Voting closes on September 21st. Between now and then, please vote for us once a
day and forward and repost this message.
This is an incredible opportunity not only for SFA to receive some necessary
funding, but also to secure a featured place on MySpace for a month and help
spread the word about the Campaign for Fair Food and the Coalition of Immokalee
Workers to the million or so people who use MySpace each day.
You can vote once a day from now through Friday the 21st!
Pinpoint customers who are looking for what you sell.
