FAST has an opportunity to win $250,000 from Vivint. Company (formerly APX) in their Vivint Gives Back Project.  They will be giving away $250,000 to the grand prize winner and (5) $100,000 prizes to the top in each region in their current competition on Facebook.  Their employees raised the money and now they want YOU to help them decide where and to whom it should go.  This competition is all conducted in FACEBOOK and has two phases.

Here is the link for the Facebook event page: http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=188492087863434
Phase 1- Vote every day for FAST in the central region from April 15 – June 11th.
On June 12th the top 20 organizations in each region will move into Phase 2.
Phase 2- Voting begins June 14th – August 27th.  VOTE EVERY DAY!! If FAST is number one in the nation at that time we will win $250K.  If we do not win that, but are top in our region, we will win $100K.  This is a VERY important competition and we need everyone to vote for the sake of the children!!!  Vivint will also have a matching donations time period in phase 2.    During this matching time, you donate $50 and Vivint will match your $50 up to a total amount of $2500.00.  This means another $5000.00 for us!  Watch for the matching time periods and donate $50.00 (forgo 2 pizzas and some pop and you have your $50!!)
The first time you vote is rather difficult.  Please feel free to e-mail Yvonne Hamrick at 4hamricks@gmail.com and I will walk you through the process.
The second and subsequent times you vote is VERY EASY and requires about 30 seconds of your time.  Please follow the steps outlined below and GO VOTE!  THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!
