AWARENESS: Child & Adolescent Bipolar Foundation - PLEASE VOTE

Child & Adolescent Bipolar Foundation has a chance to get funds to help spread awareness and educate parents whose children suffer with this condition. It only takes a few seconds to vote each way and can make such a HUGE difference for SO MANY!! You can even sign in easily through your facebook account. This is an important cause to me, as most of you already know. Myself, dealing with the disorder and possibly my 13 yr old, as well. (Not OFFICIALLY diagnosed as of yet... They are reluctant to diagnose it at his age... May need to go elsewhere to get him the help he NEEDS... There is EVEN STIGMA in the medical profession, trust me, I KNOW!) Help spread the word!!

Holly,

Thank you so much for posting about CABF's Pepsi Refresh Project. Over 5 million American youth have depression or bipolar disorder. Early intervention can save lives. Winning the $250K grant would transform our ability to help these teens.

Our current rank of 95 is a random "starting position" assigned by Pepsi for the 1st few days of the contest -- their rankings will be updated within the next couple of days. Please keep voting, and help us reach the top!

If you'd like to learn more ways you can help, please feel free to contact me: sraider@bpkids.org

Warm regards,
Shira
CABF Webmaster
