We did it!!!!!!!! We were able to hang on and made it to the top 25!!
Congratulations to all of you and thank you for your efforts!
Please forward this to everyone who you recruited to vote so they know.
We get a week-long break before the official top 25 are announced. During that time, those projects will be contacted to set up new project pages for voting.
Remember that ONLY US-RESIDENT CARDHOLDERS CAN VOTE IN THE 2ND ROUND.
If you don't have an Amex card, you can sign up online for free! That gives you a vote. And if you decide to close your account as soon as the card arrives, that is OK too! :))
In the 2nd round, they are whittling it down to the top 5. Everyone has to vote ONCE A DAY, EVERY DAY! That voting period is 3 weeks long (ends September 30). This is a VOTES ONLY thing, the advisory panel will not be involved in choosing the top 5 finalists.
But we will know the outcome in only 6 weeks (October 14th!) So please get the word out, make sure folks are signing up for cards if they wish to vote, and that they are ready the minute the voting begins!
