Vote vote VOTE!
Go HERE and vote Taryn Davis. She was just 21 when her husband, CPL Michael Davis, was killed by a roadside bomb in Iraq. In 2007, just four months after her husband's death she created the AWP (American Widow Project). This non profit has helped, and supported over 900 military widows. Pretty awesome huh?
Taryn is up for CNN's Hero of the Year award. The top 10 nominees will receive a $10,000 grant. The nominee with the most votes will receive an additional $250,000 in grants!!! Wowza! So please vote (up to 10 times a day! wink,wink).
CNN's photographer David S. Holloway went, and hung out with Taryn, and other widows on an AWP get-a-away trip. Click HERE to watch, and hear about his visit.
Thank you so much for your support!
