Please help the River Gypsies win a grant!

Hey folks!

We've entered a contest to try to win a small business grant, and a part of the judging is how many votes we get. This grant would be a huge help for us in covering the printing costs for the River Gypsies Guide to North America. Basically a grant would mean we could focus more on finishing the book and less on selling ads in it.

Please help us out by voting for our story! It only takes a minute. You do have to create a username and password, but it's simple and takes about 1 minute.

Then you vote that you found our story inspiring, useful, or funny (or all three).

You can read the short story and vote at this link:

From the Pumpkin Patch to Entrepreneurship - Intuit Community

Thanks for helping out!

Thanks Toni!!

Thanks to everyone who has voted!

We're getting there. They extended the contest by a month today, so we're gonna need to keep getting votes to solidify our position.

Here's hoping we make the top 50 and get to do the video version of our entry!
