Thank you to everyone who voted for Milkweed Mercantile, the off-grid, "everybody-gets-paid-the-same", innovative new business starting up at Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage to win a chance at a $10,000 prize, which they plan to use to purchase a wind turbine.  Thanks to you, they are finalists!!!   Now, they really need all of us to vote in the final vote, which runs from now until Sept. 30. It only takes a few minutes of your time. (If you haven't registered there before, it will take about 3 minutes total.  If you have, it will take just a few seconds.)  Please, PLEASE, kind, caring folk of Care2, take a little time to help out these good folks. 

Here is the link to vote:

And, if you want to find out more about the business and the woman behind it, here is the link to Alline Anderson's blog.

And, again,


Mel DarkDeer
