Special request from Pro-Ecuador Editors

Hey Pro-Ecuador Readers,

I realize this is quite a bit out of the ordinary, but
I hope you will honor a request from a dad trying
to help his daughters.  

Our regular Pro-Ecuador newsletter will be sent out
on Monday, Memorial day, with a View from the Roof
article entitled, "America at War with Itself."  

Now for the request:  Our twin daughters, Lark and
Tamara, are in the final running for a $25,000
grant from Pepsi
to fund a non-profit arts academy,
Avalon Educational Institute, in Duluth, Minnesota.    

With only two days of voting remaining, they are in
11th place.  The top 10 vote getters will each win
a $25,000 grant. You can help them by clicking
on the Vote button below. After you click, you will
need to register to vote. I would love to tell them
that Pro-Ecuador readers pushed them over the top.

Please take a couple of minutes and help two wonderful
young women and a bunch of other people realize
a dream. Click on this link to take you to the Pepsi
Voting Site.  


Gary Phillips and Linda McFarlin
