Aviva Community Fund & Giveaway

So, this post is a little different than the usual, okay a lot different. I have a favour to ask of all of you, my lovely followers and readers.

I am a volunteer at the Midland Area Reading Council (MARC.) They are a not for profit literacy group that provides tutors and classes and a whole range of services for anyone who needs it. Anyhow, they are competing in the Aviva Community Fund Competition to start up a new literacy initiative (full details here.) In order to stay in the competition, MARC needs your help.

How you can vote:
  1. Go to
  2. Click “Register Now” - type in your email address and make up a password
  3. Aviva will send you an email – just follow the link to finalize your registration
  4. Find MARC by clicking “Explore Ideas” – “Advanced Search” – “Submit” – click in “Keyword” and type 5872 – click “Submit”
  5. Click on project and then select "Vote Now"
  6. You are allowed to vote once per day, in each round.
So, I know what you are thinking, that sounds great and all, but I don't live in Midland, how will this benefit me? Well, it won't, not quite anyway, but I spend a lot of time volunteering with MARC as a tutor, a class instructor and run their e-bay site, so it means a lot to me if you could spare a few minutes. That and as a thank you for voting, I will be running a little draw. Register and vote, then leave me a comment on this post (with your email) for your chance to win an Avon prize pack. Anyone who votes is eligible (ie international readers.) Details of what you'll get when I announce a winner at the end of the Aviva competition. As per usual winner will be determined using

I have no real way to see if you have actually voted, but this is for charity, so please be truthful and lend your support.

Thanks a Million ladies!!

    Good luck!

  4. I'm having trouble voting again. For the last two days it keeps telling me I already voted and to try again after midnight. Well I am!

  5. The website finally let me vote again, but I am annoyed because there should be 2 more votes from me by now and I wonder if others had the same problem and your friend is missing out on some votes because of that glitch. I suppose the others in the running might be missing out on some votes too, but whatever, they should make sure their website is working correctly.

  6. Just voted again today Bailey (248)!
    Good luck!
