One Pixel at a Time...One Vote Counts

I have a friend who is involved in something called the Pixel Project. She's a fellow writer and a big advocate against violence, especially violence against women and families. So when she sent me an email about how I could help her out on this project, I thought about my blog readers. All it takes you is a moment to read and a moment to follow the link and vote.

Here is the information she sent me:

I am involved with the Pixel Project, a global initiative to raise awareness and funds to end violence against women. (Funds go to two registered non-profits.) The entire campaign is being done online and the fundraising is being done through a mystery picture of male celebrities from around the world. The picture will be divided into 1 million pixels, with each pixel being sold for USD$1 each.

We have 2 men committed (a Nobel Prize winner and a Pulitzer Prize winner) but we want to attract a globally known actor. To that end, we are running a Voters’ Choice campaign. The idea is for people vote for their favourite from among 5 nominees and sign a petition that will be sent to the winning actor to ask him to participate.

We are trying to reach 20,000 votes and we’re only at about 4,000. If you are interested, you can vote at http://bit.ly/PixelVote. Feel free to pass this message along to anyone else who might be want to get involved. The men have been selected because they have no history of violence, are globally recognized and have a good record of charitable work. Their bios are here. http://www.thepixelproject.net/community-buzz/voters-choice-celebrity-male-role-model/and-the-nominees-are/

So go...vote. Make a difference!
