Today I am writing about something other than cakes...
I volunteered in Tanzania 4 years ago through a company called Cross Cultural Solutions (CCS). It was an amazing experience, and Tanzania definitely has a piece of my heart.
I am longing to return to this incredible country and to see the people I got to know there once again. CCS currently has a photo competition on called "The Many Faces of Volunteering". I submitted a photo from my volunteer experience and out of over 1,000 entries my photo was short-listed to the Top 50!
And then public voting began on Facebook! (ugh!). I think of myself as reasonably "well connected" but I had no idea how connected others were!! I am currently in 9th place and would really love to be in the top 4 or 5, but desperately need more votes to get there... To be able to have my volunteer tuition paid for and to volunteer again would truly be a dream come true.
If you feel like supporting me, just go to http://www.facebook.com/crossculturalsolutions On the left hand side you will see "Vote here - contest entries". Click on that and "like" CCS. Then vote for my photo!
It is currently on Page 1 (could move to Page 2 if I drop lower than 9th place). It is a photo of a Maasai Woman gazing off into the distance (shown above) and my name (Setia Lindsay) will appear underneath it. You can only vote once, and voting ends in a few days (Nov. 14, 2011)!!
So please vote if you have a moment! Thank you!
