30 second service project

I have been home now for five days and it has been soooo good. It has also given me a chance to think about more than just being in the hospital and wishing I were home. It is always greener on the other side! I wanted to introduce all my minions to a really great thing my dad told me about. My dads cousin is the president of the Prader-Willi Syndrome Association of Utah. They are competing for votes in the APX Gives Back competition in which APX Alarm will give $100,000 to the top vote getting charity in their competition.

Lets help them out to win this competition so they can use these funds to help new parents of children diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. Also by voting you will be entered to win an iPad. You can vote one time each day. Vote!

Here's how to vote. Please let your voice be heard!
