Your vote for the Children's Home can change lives


    Vote for the United Methodist Children’s Home every day through February 23 in the Aprons in Action contest on Facebook ( put on by The Home Depot Foundation. The UMCH could win $25,000 in Home Depot gift cards to build a new playground for the youngest children on campus. If they win the initial contest, they can also compete in March against the past year’s monthly winners for the grand prize of $250,000.
          In order to vote, you must have a Facebook account and you must be signed in. Here are the step-by-step directions:
          1. When you sign in on Facebook, search for The Home Depot Foundation.
          2. Scroll down until you see four photos and a list of the four competitors: the UMCH is #2 in the list.
          3. Click the circle by the name and click “vote.” (You must “allow” The Home Depot Foundation to access your basic information, which enables The Home Depot to monitor the contest and ensure that each voter only votes once per day. The Home Depot takes their contest and your privacy seriously, and they will not access your private information.)
          4. Click “share” to tell all your friends about the UMCH and help them win! You can vote once every 24 hours.
          The Home Depot Foundation’s voting page doesn’t work on cell phones and other devices, so you’ll need to vote from your computer. While you’re on Facebook, click over to the Children’s Home Facebook page and become their friend. They will be sending daily reminders to Facebook friends during the contest. After voting yourself, the best way to help the Children’s Home win the contest is to enlist your circle of friends to vote. Does your church have an email or a Facebook page? Would your coworkers vote? How about your niece with 1,200 Facebook friends - would she ask them all to vote? Together, the UMCH can win! 
          With a single click per day, you can help the United Methodist Children’s Home build a beautiful playground for their children. Thank you for helping the UMCH improve the lives of the children and the families who live there.
