Vote for the Catholic Brady Bunch!

Here's your chance to help a large Catholic family get their kids into college:

Howdy Friends & Family,

Our family has entered a $25,000 nationwide UPromise college scholarship contest in which you submit a 30 second video (no more than 5 MB in size) explaining why you'd like $25K towards college. We made a cute parody of "The Brady Bunch" and all nine of our kids fill up the nine squares! You have to watch it a few times, because the kids thought of several creative things that happen as our oldest, Nathan and Matthew, sing about why they need the money for college. You can vote for and view our video, "Our College Fund", at:

A larger version of the video is on YouTube:

We received a phone call Friday that our video made it into the Top 10 and now the $25K Grand Prize Winner will be chosen by the voting public! YOU can help us win by voting ONCE PER DAY (if possible) April 1 through April 16. We would be so appreciative if you (and any family or friends you think may enjoy the video and vote) could help us win the scholarship!

I'd like to email you a quick reminder to vote each day. Just let me know if you'd rather not be on the list. If you spread the word and someone else would like to be added to the daily vote reminder list, I can add them if they email me at:

Thank you in advance for any help you can give towards this effort! And again, please feel free to forward this email to any friends or family you think may enjoy the video and vote. We may never be able to know or thank everyone who voted, so please accept our heartfelt THANKS from our whole family!!

UPromise Contest Voting:
"Our College Fund" video parody of "The Brady Bunch"
* April 1 - April 16

I've already voted twice - there are some great videos in the top 10 (I especially like the one from Wisconsin and the singer/guitarist) but I prayed about it and feel voting for the Brady Bunch parody (which is also very cute, don't get me wrong!) is a great way to support our huge Church family.

If you've never heard of Upromise I encourage you to explore their website and, if it interests you, sign up. If you don't have a student (or graduate - they allow you to transfer earnings towards Sallie Mae student loans, too!) to "save" for, consider clicking here to register and send your earnings towards David's student loan. Thanks!
