a little thanks ahead of time

Friends, family and online acquaintances. I am aware that we all
dislike receiving mass emails and the like, so it is with that in mind
that I am sending one out with hope that you'll read it, act upon it
and not to be too upset with me for sending one out.

For those unaware of my situation, I've been backpacking through Asia
for the last 21 months. The last 7 of which have found me in Luang
Prabang, Laos where I've been doing a little computer work as well as
teaching yoga to cover my living costs. A better update could be
found on my blog here but that
isn't why I am writing you all.

In April I am planning on taking another yoga teacher training course
and this is where I am asking for your help. I found an online
scholarship program where the winner will receive tuition covered in
full. The way to win is by having the most votes by the end of the day
Dec 31st. Votes are counted in 3 ways and all done from the same
page. Comments left on the page, Facebook likes clicked on from the
page and tweets left from the page all will go to the final tally.
The contest ends in less than 10 days and I'm getting my butt kicked
hard. But I think with all of your help (especially if you forward
this on to your friends) I can win this. You can leave new comments
each day as well as from different email accounts. Your emails are
private and you won't be signed up for spam, they are just used as an
authentication method.

I would appreciate it greatly if you could take a minute out of your
day, today and each day until the end of the year and leave a comment
and or tweet. Facebook likes can only be done once but the comments
and tweets can be done each day.

The link to the page is here.

Again, I am apologetic for the mass email, but do hope you can look
past that and help a friend in need out.

many thanks and a whole lot of love
