Incredible Support

January 19, 2010 by Victoria Strong
There are so many exciting things happening surrounding this amazing campaign, growing our vote numbers and raising much needed awareness of SMA. We are truly inspired by every one of you for rolling up your sleeves and fighting for this with us, calling in favors, thinking outside of the box, and NOT GIVING UP. Every single vote is important and just when we think we've tapped out our friend base, another awesome boost happens. In the last few days, here are some of the cool endorsements GSF + SMA have received (forgive us if we forgot anyone, it is crazy around here):
