Greetings, Friends,

The last day of voting for the Ideas for Change in America competition is TODAY, Thursday January 15th! On Friday we will present the top 10 ideas to the Obama administration at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. We'll then connect the winning ideas to leading nonprofits and launch a series of national advocacy campaigns to turn each idea into federal policy.

I've voted for the following ideas:
I'm feeling excited about the potential that citizen input can have during this time of transition. Would you be willing to vote your passion and your compassion?

Hi Jim,
I also voted for Bridging the Empathy Gap, and helped spread the word about it.

I like how voting for ideas links ordinary people to government, with the help of already existing non-profit organizations. I'm curious about what this will lead to, if it will be the start of something.

It feels strange to take part in the blogosphere. I'm not sure I totally like it, but I've decided to try it a bit. Your blog seemed like a nice place to start. :-)
