Did you know...there have been 30 million toy recalls in the US since January 2007? Isn't the time right to take a step in supporting locally-made, eco-friendly alternatives?
There is only a little more than 24 hours left for us, and we are asking for help through online votes.
Our eco-friendly board game company was selected as 1 of 20 semifinalists in the 2008 Forbes.com "Boost Your Business" entrepreneurial contest. We're a family business that invents and distributes sustainable game products.
We're pursuing a $100,000 grand prize to develop a new game made with bold recycled components with a teen/adult version and a junior version. Anyone will notice that our business plan is the only one that also turns part of the prize into a web site that generates ongoing donations for non-profit organizations -- we will make a free and fun online game that makes charitable contributions with each visitor's play.
In order to advance, we need to generate enough votes from the public for our business now through September 30 (polls close at midnight!). Andwe need a lot of them! All 20 companies are working overtime to make it to the finals and we need your assistance.
It takes two minutes of time in an easy online vote and validation system with Forbes.
Sharing this with as many parents and educators is our goal. Can you help with a fast vote? Can you ask a friend or two to consider supporting us before the midnight deadline?
Thank you for your time and thoughtfulness. Please let us know if there are any ideas.
