Help Akshaya Patra win funding for hungry children in India

Raising money to feed the hungry was the reason I started this blog.
This news item caught my attention...please help by voting.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation, an organization that provides a free hot daily lunch for malnourished/poor children, to try to get them to go to school, is hoping to get 1.5 million in funding from American Express Members Project. AP has 1623 nominations and needs 2500.
Won't you please log on to American Express and vote for AP?
The nomination process ends Sept 29th. Top five voting begins Sept.30th.
Click on the above link and vote.
You don't have to enroll in anything, or have an American Express card, or donate money. Just vote on the site by Sept 29, 2008.
