I received the following email the other day and I encourage you to support this terrific cause
I hope this finds you well. I’m writing to ask for a favor. The museum I’ve been working on, Clara Barton’s Missing Soldiers Office, is one of 24 finalists in a grant contest held by the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The historic site with the top vote automatically received $100,000.00! Although we peaked at 7th place, we’ve recently slipped to 11th, which will be out of the running. All you need to do is register at the site and vote for Clara Barton’s Missing Soldiers Office every day through May 10. Every time you share a post on Facebook about voting or retweet a message on Twitter that contains #clarabarton we receive extra points! The website is http://www.preservedmv.com.
Please help me spread the word by asking your friends and family to vote for us! Clara Barton began giving to anyone and everyone she could in need from the Civil War in 1861 to her death in 1912. The Missing Soldiers Office is just one aspect of her extraordinary life that continues to support the military and civilians around the world today. Winning this grant will enable us to restore and reinstall the original building’s windows. Miss Barton deserves to have a first class museum to inspire others to continue her work.
THANK YOU in advance
