Well, here's your chance to give that opportunity to other kids who might not otherwise get it. First Book is holding a contest, and the state with the most votes on September 15th will receive 50,000 books which will go to children in need. You can vote once every 24 hours. And it only takes a few seconds of your time. Aren't 50,000 books worth that?
Nebraska is currently in second place (WHOO!) but I'm hoping those Nebraskans on my flist can vote and help me spread the word for others to vote, too.
