Did that headline get your attention?  GOOD!  Now for the “meat” of the story!

My middle child, Alayna, is a kindergarten student at Discovery Elementary School in San Marcos. The school was built in the mid-90s and is still beautiful, but due to it’s age it has not held up well when it comes to technology. Kids today can do SO much, if they have the right equipment, and we’re trying to help them with that.

Clorox is holding a grant competition that awards the winning school $50,000, and Discovery wants to use that money to help upgrade the technology so that the students have the best available to them. Right now, we’re in first place, but our lead is shrinking and we need all the help we can get! Please take a moment and click on the link below to vote for Discovery Elementary. Each person can text* and vote online every day, so that’s TWO votes per person per day. It takes less than 5 minutes to text and vote online, so it would be really amazing if you would take those few moments to help out.

To vote online, click on the image above.  The easiest way to make sure you’re voting for Discovery is to click on “Gallery of Nominees” in the upper left corner, then click on the “Most Votes” button a couple of inches below on the left.  Discovery will hopefully still be in the lead, so it will be the first school.  Click vote and you’re done!  You do need to register the first time, and I chose to use a different email address that is not associated with my Facebook account (I didn’t want them accessing my info!).  I got a confirmation email for my registration, but I have not gotten any spam from Clorox after that. Each time you got there to vote after the first time, you can just click/confirm/finish!

Never texted?  That’s ok, I can help!  If you’ve got any questions about how to text or vote online, please don’t hesitate to respond here or email me at and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.    Every vote helps, so even if you can’t vote both ways, any voting is good!


* Note: Texting rates do apply, but only if you are on a plan that doesn’t include texting.


  1. I just wanted to update everyone – WE WON!!! Thanks for voting, your support meant the difference between $25,000 and $50,000. Woo hoo!!! 🙂
