    Voting Help Needed From CycloneFanatics!

    Hello CycloneFanatics!

    Longtime lurker, first time poster. I grew up in southwest Iowa and have been a lifelong Cyclone fan. I attended a small college to pursue the opportunity to play college basketball; however, I have two brothers who attended ISU and I have always remained a huge fan and supporter. I'm a daily visitor to cyclonefanatic, and LOVE all the information CycloneFanatics everywhere are able to share with eachother. Unfortunately, the combination of my profession and two small children keeps me much too busy to be active on the message boards.

    I recently relocated to Kansas City after spending some time living on the east coast. My first post was triggered by the combination of a couple things, and a request I'm making to CycloneFanatics everywhere: 1) I know the stregnth that the CycloneFanatic community brings in on-line voting, and 2) I recently joined the board of a small start-up charity called Sleephead Beds, which was recently selected as 1 of 15 semi-finalists in Mercedes Benz USA's community stars challenge, 5 of which will win $25,000.

    My ask to CycloneFanatics is to PLEASE consider voting and asking your facebook friends to do the same. As we've witnessed, CycloneFanatics can make a HUGE difference in these challenges. Sleephead Beds operates with very limited resources, facing all the usual challenges young charities have when seeking support. These funds will make a world of difference in helping a large number of children sleep comfortably at night. We need your help! Together we can make an impact on this midwest community with a strong Cyclone base.

    Pleas see the details below and remember you can vote once per day! If you reply that you voted, as well as number of your facebook friends that also have (if possible to track?), I'd love to update my board on the level of support Cyclone fans were able to provide!

    THANK YOU AGAIN AND GO CYCLONES!

    Sleepyhead Beds is a non-profit charitable organization serving the greater Kansas City area. Our mission is to provide a cozy bed and warm bedding to children in need.

    The idea is simple. We take gently-used, unwanted mattresses and bedding, sanitize and sterilize them, and distribute them to children in need. There is no application process - as long as we have beds, they go to any children that need them.

    Sleepyhead Beds was founded in the fall of 2010 to fill a void in community youth services. Hundreds of area children go to bed each night on the floor, the back seat of a car, or on a sofa.

    In the past 6 months, Sleepyhead Beds has delivered over 900 beds to area children….connecting families with unused, unwanted beds with families who desperately want and deserve the comfort their own bed provides. These services also benefit the community-and the environment- by keeping hundreds of large, bulky mattresses out of area landfills.



    Please help Sleepyhead Beds win a $25,00 grant! See the steps below to vote for our video. Please share this info with your friends and vote every day!

    Unfortunately, the only way to vote is through Facebook. You won't find a better reason to open a Facebook account. Make sure you vote everyday through October 21st!
