Testing the power of social networks

A guy I used to work with had a baby daughter who had a brain tumour, and died aged 3. To try and help other children, Rob and his wife set up a charity called "Anna's Hope". Story here: http://annas-hope.co.uk/about/

Anna's Hope is one of 25 charities (out of 3500 applications) who has been put forward to win a £250K house. The eventual winner will be chosen by public online vote, closing on 20th September. The winner will be the one who has the most contacts and makes best use of social media .

Rob is competing against much bigger charities with bigger networks and more resources, so we're trying to spread the word. If you would like to help, please vote

Anyone from anywhere in the world can vote. You can vote multiple times, but only once per day. (if you have a Smartphone, you may be able to vote from that in addition to your desktop/laptop, I'm not sure how they are doing the once a day restriction).

Winning the house means that Anna's hope will reach its target of £1m and be able to set up the First Neuro Rehabilitation Service in the UK for Children with Brain Tumours

Thanks for reading.
