One Vote from You = $1 Million for Sharks

While Haiti should definitely be a priority at the could help another cause that just requires you to vote on Facebook.  

Georgienne Bradley from the Imaging Foundation sent me the following information:

"Shark Finning is a brutal practice that persists practically unchecked throughout the world's oceans. Cocos Island - a UNESCO World Heritage site - is ground zero for shark finning. We need to stop this practice there now and educate future generations. 

As you know I am trying to stop shark finning and protect Cocos Island. please help me with this daunting yet possible cause. Vote with me, and get the message and vote out to your circle of friends. Instructions are below.

Please email me at if you have any ideas on how we can best get this critical vote out or want to get seriously involved in this cause.

We are currently positioned to win a $1,000,000 grant in the Chase Community Giving Facebook contest. The Imaging Foundation has a strong history of shark advocacy and education.

If you are a Facebook member, please consider casting a simple vote for the Imaging Foundation-Sea Save before Jan 22th.

Here’s how to vote:

Step One: Log into your Facebook account and paste this link into your web browser:

Step Two: Become a fan of “Chase Community Giving.” (You can remove them once you’ve finished voting.)

Step Three: You will be asked, “Vote for Charity?” Make sure the charity Imaging Foundation and click “Yes”

Once you vote, your Facebook picture will appear on the page, showing your commitment to protecting sharks. 

Thank you for your support!"
