View Full Version : Help for Friends of a Friend
October 15th, 2003, 1:51pm
I'm kinda new here, but thought I'd try and request some assistance...
One of the best people in my life sent me some mail today asking me to help her, help her friends that is, win a contest on bhg.com. Her friends have a little girl and... well here is what my friend wrote me:
"Her name is Cate and she is the dear first child of my friend from high school and his sweet wife. They've entered her in a Better Homes and Gardens Halloween [photo] contest and, frankly, I want her to win. Please help her."
So here is the link: http://bhg.com/bhg/photocontest/vote.jhtml?entryId=3200002
I'm sure most of us are already registered at BHG.com. You get five entries a day, I don't know how long it runs, but if she got five entries ONLY from some of us it sure would help. It IS an awfully cute picture!
By the way, there is also a link on that site to win a CREST NIGHT EFFECTS sweeps...

I had to register first before I could vote.
Sorry I didn't mention that... I figured we would all already be registered at BHG.com since they offer a couple big giveaways every year. I hope you signed up for the one time only entry $10,000 sweeps while you were there! http://www.bhg.com/bhg/file.jhtml?item=/contests/cash/cash_land&temp=yes
Cate is doing REALLY WELL!!! She has slipped into 4th place as of a few minutes ago however... so keep those votes coming!!!
Thanx a ton... her parents are getting a HUGE kick out of all the votes!
October 22nd, 2003, 4:44pm
Little Cate has fallen to 5th place! Any votes you can muster would ROCK!!! She's doin awesome and probably will never catch the front runner... but 5th? I can't take it!!!
You can vote every day...
thanx so much for all your votes... and if ya get a sec I'd really appreciate it if y'all could kick in a few more!
p.s. - don't forget to get in on their $10,000 giveaway! http://bhg.com/bhg/file.jhtml?item=/contests/cash/cash_land&temp=yes
October 22nd, 2003, 5:30pm
You get my 5 votes every day!!!!
When does the voting period end?
October 24th, 2003, 6:00pm
Again... Thanx SO MUCH!!! I know her success in this contest is due to my friends in the sweeping community, and her parents do too.
She has been hangin in there bouncing between 3rd 4th and 5th place...
I don't really understand what the "Weeks" are or how long the voting periods are... the rules are a little confusing... so I am just going to continue putting in my 5 votes every day until it tells me I can't anymore.
Here's the link again http://bhg.com/bhg/photocontest/vote.jhtml?entryId=3200002
October 25th, 2003, 6:34am
I've been voting everyday Sigh. How did she drop back to 5th? Let's keep bumping this up top. :)
October 25th, 2003, 11:10am
Yeah... I was supprised at her standing when I put my 5 in this morning... but she's still doing SO MUCH better than she ever could have thanx to us!!! Plus... it's not over yet... WE are persistant... those other little kids parents will get tired of entering and THAT is when Cate will start shining!!! Thank you for all the votes y'all DO contribute...
October 25th, 2003, 1:10pm
voted again :)
October 25th, 2003, 7:02pm
They let me do all five votes for your friend's baby. I hope they win, the group at OLS can do anything if they want to!
October 25th, 2003, 7:19pm
Yup!!! I give her all five of my votes every day!!! You can spread em out over the group if you'd like, but of course I'd love it if y'all'd give all 5 to Cate!!! (http://bhg.com/bhg/photocontest/vote.jhtml?entryId=3200002)
October 25th, 2003, 7:40pm

Hey gang!!! Thanx so much for all yer help on this! Little Cate is doing really awesome! I would LOVE to see her beat the little "Pre-Teen Beauthy Queen" who is in 4th place (Cate is in 5th a few hundred votes behind).
