Virginie needs your vote. I don't know if you ever went to the pantene website and voted for V. back when I first mentioned it. Maybe you did, if so, thank you. V is in competition with 2 others. The contest is a big deal and the winner gets 7000 euros. Euros because it is in Belgium. Which, if you haven't studied french will make the voting a sort of international adventure for you! Ann has instructions here. Really, it is pretty easy to do. Why are we voting for V and why do we care about the silly Belgiumese and their luscious hair? Well, V has agreed to give half the winnings to this really cool humanitarian project that my friend Ann is tied to. That's reason enough isn't it? How often can you make a difference with a little <click>? I mean other than <click>ing to buy that perfect pair of pants from the banana republic website.
A while ago there was some misunderstanding about the prize money. Ann initially assumed V was planning on giving all of the money away. Then, after further investigation realized she is planning on giving half the money. Which, frankly is just about half more than I would give to anything if I won a contest right now. That goes double if I won a shiny beautiful hair contest because WHAT A COUP THAT WOULD BE! Anyway, I think it is remarkable that she is giving away ANY of her prize money at all and if you decide not to vote for her because she's only giving half well then I'll just have to say it, you're a turd.
Now, here comes the plea. Will you please go and vote for V? If you've already done it, do it again. Just find her and click on her picture. You'll be taken to her page where a button with the word "voter" comes up. Even I could figure out that's the button you click to vote. Do that. Feel good about yourself. Sleep soundly tonight. You can vote once a day for a few more days. It won't take much to push her ahead and keep her there. Since I check my stats and know that more than 10,000 of you are here each day, I know we can do it! Now, you might think that since the other 9,999 people besides you that read daily will be voting you don't have to BUT that's really not true. For a couple of reasons ..
1) Every vote counts
2) I lied about the stats. So Mom, please go vote. Okay?
