With 2nd Place, Camp Borrego Was Awarded $10,000!

UPDATE! Thanks to all of YOU, ABF was awarded 2nd Place and $10,000 of support for Camp Borrego next year.

Thank You Thank You THANK YOU!


In case you haven't heard by now, ABF has been nominated as one of 8 environmental nonprofits to be in the running for CBS 8's 2014 Eco Ambassadors Campaign.

With your help through voting, Camp Borrego could receive a $25,000 grant from SDG&E, thanks to their Eco Ambassadors partnership with CBS 8 and the San Diego River Park Foundation. The grant would allow schools and their students to attend Camp Borrego free of charge.

The voting campaign started on June 13th and will continue until noon on July 1. Each person can vote once per day, per electronic device. So, help us out! Get online to the Eco Ambassadors Voting Page and vote for ABF every single day. Tell your friends, tell your coworkers, tell your family. Every single vote helps, and since we are currently in 2nd place, we need ALL of your votes!

In our quest for votes and publicity about this campaign, we have put together a few little reminders. My personal favorite? Reminder Ram.

So please, folks, put on your voting caps and vote every single day from now until July 1, from each of your electronic devices. It's only five days and a few minutes of your time, but this grant could help us fund Camp Borrego for 125 students next year. And that, my friends, is why we're here.
