Help Us Win a Trip to Alaska to Volunteer

Many of our friends, family, and blog readers have shared their support for our trip and their concern for Jay’s well being since the accident.  You have asked how you can help.  Here’s how:

Please click on the photo below to go to the Travel for Good site and vote for us to win a travel grant to volunteer in Alaska.

The grant is for up to $5,000 and will help to balance out the costs of Jay’s treatment so that we can keep on schedule to volunteer for a year.

Here are the details of the contest:

  • You are allowed 1 vote per day per computer from now until May 31st
  • You can vote from your mobile device as well
  • You do not have to sign up or give any information to vote
  • The photo of us in the tent on the right sidebar gives you a direct link to the voting page.
  • Four winners will be chosen, so feel free to vote for another video as well if you would like
  • If we win, we will participate in one of these trips from the American Hiking Society

Please let us know if you have any questions.  If you have suggestions of where we can share our story and encourage others to vote,  please let us know.

  1. I clicked on the picture, which took me to the website, but there wasn’t any button to vote. Might I suggest you include this link in all your emails since the contest is open through May 31st.

  2. It’s my understanding that the voting doesn’t begin until April 1st.

  3. The voting has begun already. There should be a green button that says “yes! I like it” on this page: http://www.volunteerjournals.com/volunteer-travel-grants/entries/send-sharon-and-jay-full-time-volunteers-alaska underneath the video of us. If you do not see it, please let me know the details (what web browser are you using and are you looking at it from a home computer or work computer or mobile device). The sooner we discover and fix errors in the voting process, the better!

  4. awesome! I voted!

  5. Best of luck!!!!!!!! 🙂

  6. I was able to vote later that evening. And now I can vote every day. The button didn’t appear when I first watched your video.

    • So glad you were able to vote! You can only vote once every 24 hours and once per IP address. So… if you have a wireless router at home you probably only have one IP address even if you have more than one computer. So… if Stephanie votes on her laptop and then you try to vote on your office computer, it may say that you already voted. But you could certainly vote from work even if Stephanie or Chris has already voted at home. Hope that makes sense. Thanks so much for voting and encouraging others.
