Stop Global Warming Virtual March

WINDOWS LIVE MESSENGER $50,000 DONATION CHALLENGE
Our partner, the Windows Live Messenger's i'm Initiative is offering a Donation Challenge on Facebook. We could potentially get a $50,000 donation, but need your help.
To celebrate the new Windows Live, the i'm Initiative has issued this challenge: If membership in their "i'm Making a Difference" Facebook group hits 50,000 people before November 9, they'll give $50,000 to whichever cause gets the most votes. So please tell your friends, join the group, and vote for StopGlobalWarming.org. Every vote counts especially since Windows Live will still give $1 per member to the cause with the most votes, even if they don't hit their goal.
