This isn't my standard post.
Our local elementary school, Durham Elementary, is a nominee in the Power a Bright Future grant program sponsored by The Clorox Company. One school will be given $50,000, and three others will receive $25,000! Three of the four cash prizes go to the highest vote-getters. The last prize is a "judge's choice grant."
Now through December 9, 2011, you can vote for Durham Elementary, Houston, Texas. You can vote once each day.

Vote early and often.
(And, yes, our little one won't be starting school there for another few years, but the school could really use the funds.)
