My Darling Friends,
The Chicago 2016 Organization is holding a video contest asking people to answer the question “Why Chicago?” (as in, why should Chicago host the 2016 Olympics)
So, of course, being JenChicago, I HAD to enter! I created a song and dance called the “Chicago16” and with the help of wonderful friends produced the video, which is online now! The first round of voting ends this Tuesday (November 25) and the top 5 finalist will be announced the day after Thanksgiving. So please register and vote as soon as possible!
To vote, you must register (fill in blanks, answer questions, receive a confirmation email) and then you can score the videos. I know it may seem like a lot of work, but I figure… that’s what friends are for, right? And you KNOW I’d do it for you! The bonus is that by voting, you are entered to win a trip for 6 to watch the Olympians train in Colorado!
You may watch and vote on all of the videos or only vote for mine… and as MY friend, I am sure you will find that “American Dreams, Chicago16!” is the only video up there deserving the 5-STAR rating!
Here is the link: http://www.chicago2016.org/contest/entries.aspx and you may have to scroll for “American Dreams, Chicago16!” among the other submissions.
Thank you, in advance, for helping me. When Oprah interviews me after I win, I will be sure to tell her what amazing friends I have!
