Your Neighbors Need Your Vote

Good Morning Frank Here...
I am old school when it comes to my job and local television news, I always say I wish I was in this business back in the early days when the pioneers and legends of our field were basically experimenting with new ideas live on air, somethings worked and somethings did not. That was the exciting part, pioneers of local television pushed the envelope and kept reinventing themselves. One thing that has remained the same is that it is our job to serve you and while there is a lot of bad news there is also a lot of positive news to share.
One of those stories I shared with you a few weeks ago, was about a great organization called Little Hearts Big Smiles, out of Wilmington. The group provides support for families with special needs and they are currently in a competition for a 5,000 dollar grant for a handicapped accessible playground and they still need your vote. Here is a great e-mail they sent me and I wanted to share it with you and hope to get your vote again and or for the first time, the link is provide in the body of the e-mail.
Mr. Marzullo,

I would like to personally thank you for promoting the grant that Little Hearts Big Smiles is trying to receive for $5,000. Our volunteers from Clinton Massie Local Schools are some of the most wonderful kids. They are learning valuable lessons about people with disabilities.

I'm writing to ask if you would be willing to promote our flyer again with the link to the voting. We are currently in 2nd place and voting will end March 31st at 11:59 p.m. EST. The day you posted the link and showed the flyer on the news we got in first place and were ahead by over 1,800 votes!

The link is
or people can go to and the link is on our home page.

We would love to talk about our project of building a fully handicapped accessible park in Ohio and get the word out to as many people as possible about the needs for accessibility.

Thank you for your time,
Deirdre Wulf - co-founder LHBS
Publicity Chair
