Finding the Strength to Go On

Your donations are more important than ever.

Dear Marissel,

CABF parents are strong--we have to be. This illness never goes away--there is no cure. That's why I know we can pull together to win the $250,000 grant from Pepsi. We have the strength from within to get out the votes.

CABF has climbed from 296th to 5th place in only 2 weeks! We have 2 weeks remaining to earn one of the top two spots and a rare opportunity to strengthen our ability to help other families--families who might not be as strong. Winning this grant is based on total votes alone! Please take 30 seconds to help!

Voting is free and easy-- just click the links below.

Sign up for a daily email voting reminder at
and, if CABF wins, a chance to WIN 1 of 3 iPads.

Vote today, click the links below and vote ALL THREE WAYS every day in November:

Vote Online: Go to This will take you to the CABF Pepsi voting page. Click "Vote for this Idea". Register once and then you are all set.

Vote on Facebook: The first time you vote via Facebook, you'll be asked for permission to access your information. Click "Allow". This will take you to the Pepsi Refresh Vote & Share application. You will see CABF's project below the search bar. Click "Vote for this Idea". (Be sure to click "share this idea" to encourage your friends to vote for us on Facebook. Do this every time you vote!) If you do not see our project, "type CABF" into the search bar.

Text your Vote: Text 104174 to PEPSI (73774) (Normal text rates apply).

What else can you do to get more votes for CABF?
Bookmark our voting pages: & We need you to vote every day in the month of November. Anyone age 13 or older can vote. (Feel free to vote for other projects as well -- just not for any other projects which are also requesting a $250,000 grant).
Tell your friends on Facebook by clicking this image: on the right hand column of the CABF voting page.
FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS, along with YOUR PERSONAL MESSAGE asking them to vote for CABF every day. Remember to ask your kids and their friends to vote.
Print out flyers and cards which you can give to friends. Hand them out at meetings, sporting events, etc.

Don't think you'll remember every day? No problem! Sign up for daily email reminders for a chance to WIN AN IPAD! If CABF wins the challenge, everyone who registered for a daily email reminder will have a chance to win one of three iPads.
Winning a $250,000 Pepsi Refresh grant would truly transform CABF's ability to provide support, information and hope to thousands more families.
