We need your vote!

Today has been filled with updates on how Tropical Storm Isaac bounded through Haiti early this morning. Bringing heavy rains, flooding and mudslides, many lives have been affected, especially those 300,000+ still living in tents. (For the latest, check out CNN, Reuters and other reliable sources.) Fears of the storm reigniting the cholera epidemic are a reality for our Haitian friends. With the grim news spreading, we thought you could use some uplifting news.

Sonya, TRTP Vice President, entered a photography contest with 21 of our favorite photos from our travels to Haiti. She takes great care in her photography to capture the Haitian spirit in a meaningful, dignified way. We invite you to view her portfolio and vote. Many of these photos haven't been published on our blog or Facebook page, so be sure to take a look!

Voting closes in 3 short days. You can only vote once (not every day). At the top of the page, click on COLLECT ME (unusual choice of words, we know!). OneLife will ask for some simple info and, yes, it is a safe website. Please consider sharing her work with your friends.

What a great opportunity to share photos from The Red Thread Promise's work with the world!
