Help Parkersburg Rebuild Their High School

>> Tuesday, October 07, 2008

And it won't cost you a thing.

If you're from Iowa you one thing comes to mind when I say Parkersburg- and that's "damn big tornado". Most of that town was destroyed this past spring. No big names came to have benefit concerts, no Hollywood stars drew attention to the disaster, no helicopters from the big news stations splashed this across screens nationwide.

Iowans came together to help and with a lot of hope, faith and determination life has gone on in Parkersburg. That's just how we do it here in the Heartland. We get up, wipe ourselves off and pick up the pieces.

I encourage you to visit Henkel Helps Schools as they are giving away $25,000 to a deserving school. Scroll through the finalists until you see a photo of destruction- for that is all that is left of the Parkersburg high school. Read the entry. And then enter your email address and vote. You can vote once daily per email address.

Parkersburg had 81% of the votes cast when I voted earlier. You can vote once a day every day. It's a good cause!
