ACT NOW: New Children’s Hospital Fun Center in Detroit UPDATE

I just voted again (as I have been voting daily, since you can vote once every day) for a free children’s fun center to be built in Detroit and we’re a very, very close second now. Since my last post a few days ago, we’ve become neck-and-neck with Houston (boo!). This is closer than the Democratic nomination now, folks, so do your part.

VOTE EVERY DAY UNTIL FEBRUARY 29 to help our kids. Write a reminder on a post-it note and stick it on your monitor at work and home to remember to vote every time your use the internets.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: You can vote once daily from any computer, so please vote every day at least once and tell all of your co-workers, family members, and friends to do the same. If there’s one city that isn’t used to getting freebees, it’s Detroit–we always seem to get things the tough way. Now that there’s an easy way, let’s take advantage.


…and vote every single day. Spread the word.

    I just wanted to point out that Colgate is giving a fun center to every hospital on the list so in a way, we’re already winners :) The contest is still going, though, and the winner of all the votes on February 29 will get an additional fun center, so keep voting!

    Really? Well, I suppose my ardor for the cause prevented me from reading it thoroughly. Anyway, let’s just keep that between us so that we can drum up the troops to help us win that second fun center. We deserve it, anyway.

    I am so glad that Colgate is already donating a fun center to each city on the list, but getting an extra one will be great for our city. We have one of the largest medical campuses in the country and anything to attract people to this talent is welcome. I spent some time in a children’s hospital in Canada visiting a sick friend. These fun centers are as much for the adults as the children. When dealing with life threatening illness there is comfort in the escape to a world of juvenile fancy. When voting this morning, I kept getting the secret word incorrect, but at the third try I am happy to say we are just ever so slightly in second place.
