Oh, I’m sure you remember me babbling on and on about the party.
No? Let me catch you up.
Well, guess what? The Make a Difference Day Almost-Sleepover (not Amy Sullivan) is up for an award. Yep, an award to the tune of $10,000, kind-of-award.
Plus, here’s the best part. The $10,000 will go directly to one of the designated local charities girls across the United States partied it up for. This means that our charity, The Rathbun Center, could win $10,000.
Envision me making a really high pitched eeeek sound.
This is how real it is. About a month ago, a reporter from USA Weekend, as in the national publication, called me for details about our fab party.
Yep, that’s my life, talking to reporters from a big time news source about a big time project hosted by kids with big time hearts.
Do you know what else is my life? My three-year-old chasing me around the house until finally I lock myself in my room so I can talk to USA Weekend in peace. However, when the reporter could still hear my daughter yelling, he politely asked me if I needed to go. That’s when I replied,“Oh, no, she’ll eventually stop!” To which he didn’t laugh, and I soon after blockaded myself in my closet where the noise could no longer be heard. Then, I answered his questions in a polite, put together way.
Anyway, back to the award. I need you, and I’m not the kind of girl who asks for favors, but I need a favor.
Could you vote for The Almost-Sleepover to win this year’s Make a Difference Day Award? It is easy, peasy. Just go here. Check the box that says you are over 13.

Oh, and if you Facebook and you’re up for it, could you share the story, or like it, or do whatever you people do on Facebook? Oh, and if you feel like Tweeting it or Google Plus-ing it, or letting people know by way of some social media I’ve never heard of, go for it!
Finally, if you want a bit more on why we decided to support the Rathbun Center, here's a glimpse at my daughter's story and stories from a couple other girls involved in our sleepover.
Okay, I’m finished. Now hippity-hoppity, please go vote and remember to check the box next to Guilford, CT.
