The following email was posted on the North American Fly Fishing Forum. It is from Casting For Recovery, a non-profit that helps treat breast cancer survivors fly fishing lessons. They are in a contest to win a $250,000 grant from Pepsi. I encourage everyone to vote to help them get some much needed funding and support.
Hello, I'm wondering if I could ask for the assistance of you and your members to help a non-profit flyfishing organization called "Casting for Recovery" (Casting for Recovery)by simply voting in a Pepsi grant contest? It's completely free and will only take a minute of your members' time. CFR offers flyfishing lessons and retreats to women who have breast cancer. The movement of flyfishing naturally is beneficial therapy for that type of surgery, and the experience of introducing those who have gone through the trauma of breast cancer to nature helps in the emotional healing process as well. If you and your members can help, here is the information sent to me by Susan Gaetz of CFR: Casting for Recovery (CFR) has moved up to #4 in the Pepsi Refresh $250,000 grant contest. If we can make it to the 1st or 2nd spot by Oct. 31st, CFR will win! Please help CFR win this grant and continue to improve the lives of breast cancer survivors. Thanks! Susan Please vote DAILY .
