Thank you to all of you who voted for Lianne Graymar in the Sunlight Laundry Outdoor Makeover, here’s some good news: SHE WON!

You can see some details by going to http://www.sunlightlaundry.ca/story/ and clicking on the “Contests” link at the bottom of the page, and then the “Outdoor Makeover” button when that page loads. Sorry, there’s no direct link, it’s a flash website.

So now, on heels of that success, I’m posting to ask for your help for another friend who is in another contest. This particular one only allows you to vote once for each e-mail address you have.

Sharon Gabison is the parent of a boy with autism (and he’s a wonderful kid, by the way). She runs a business called ABA Resources, she’s a physiotherapist and a teacher at Seneca College. Here’s Sharon’s message:

As many of you may know, I have worked hard over the past few years to develop affordable educational aids to assist children with autism. These resources are now being used with great success by thousands of parents and in hundreds of schools across Canada, the United States, the UK and throughout the world. I am very proud of my accomplishments, but would love to be able to do more to help parents and teachers help their children (If you haven't seen my website, you can check it out at www.abaresources.com )

Canadian Parents magazine is offering an $18,000 value business development prize package for one worthy mom entrepreneur. ("Mompreneur of the Year Award"). This prize package would be an amazing opportunity for me to both expand the resources that I am offering and to increase my ability to reach parents and educators who could benefit from the resource materials I have developed.

But to win the package I need votes. LOTS OF VOTES. The person with the most votes wins. Please please please consider voting for me. Voting is simple and can be done online with the click of one button.

Please consider passing this on to anyone and everyone who you think would be willing to help.

Take care and thanks so much!!!!!
