Hello Elizabeth,

The last day of voting for the Ideas for Change in America competition is today! On Friday we will present the top 10 ideas to the Obama administration at the National Press Club in Washington, DC. We'll then connect the winning ideas to leading nonprofits and launch a series of national advocacy campaigns to turn each idea into federal policy.


You have voted for the following idea:


Voting ends at 5pm Eastern this Thursday, Jan. 15.



We started the Ideas for Change in America initiative in the hope that we could translate the energy behind the Obama election into a citizen-led movement for change around the major issues we face. With over 500,000 votes thus far, each of you has helped deliver a clear message to the Obama administration that the American people want to participate in their own government again.



For that, we thank you. And we can't wait to work with each of you to continue this momentum after the competition ends.



In the meantime, best of luck for each of the ideas you support!



- The Change.org Team

I loved it over break when we were listening to Raffi in the car for the baby...and Hannah was shouting "Baby Beluga" lyrics until we reached the door of the restaurant...and then did the exact same thing two nights later! We got some weird looks.
