My organization, Birth Kalamazoo, is involved in a local contest for $7,500 in video services. We're not proposing a video to promote our own business, but rather a short film (applicable to everyone in the world) about meaningful, supported, safe and health birth. We have been in the lead, but suddenly an import car company is zipping into 3rd place, having gained 600+ votes overnight last night! If they do it again the next two nights, we may not be able to hold them off. They say they gained the votes by posting in national car forums... Wow, the car community sure must be powerful... Is the mama/birth community just as powerful? Can you please help us by voting for our project? There are just over 48 hours left in this contest (ends at 5p EST Thursday), so we really, really need your help.
It's SO SIMPLE TO VOTE! Help us rally the natural parenting world so we can offer up a film about birth, not cars. Vote here:

Here I am with my 3rd born, 2nd HBAC.
Birth Matters! Help Birth Kalamazoo spread the word!
Birth Kalamazoo helped me have two wonderful drug free VBACs after a traumatic first birth ending in c-section. I am only one of many they have helped. Please show your support for them and organizations like them by voting today!!
These votes are super easy, one click, and we can vote each day. I really hope Birth Kalamazoo can get a solid lead in this - I have known them (though I am not in MI) since they started, and they are doing an amazing job in supporting the normalcy of birth - we need their message to reach wider audiences!
Pretty please click and vote!
Thanks so much to everyone who is voting! Please continue to help, the contest runs through Thursday at 5 p.m. and you can vote once every 24 hours. Your support is making a difference!
