    The (special) nine-year-old son of some dear friends is in the running to win a GoPro camera. I'd love to help this special child win - he's beside himself with excitement, and it would mean the world to him. The deadline is tonight (Sept. 16th) at midnight Central Daylight Time - coming up fast!

    If you have time, and are willing to help out another Hubber who's trying to support a dear young man, please click on this link and vote for Lake Powell Jump: http://austinsmilefixer.com/fun-stuff/contests-events/

    He literally jumped off that cliff to try to win this! 

    Thanks!  Love you guys!

      Done . . . A little more help. Just three more votes at this time to reach the threshold to be in the lead. It takes only a moment of time following the link above for a simple vote. Good Luck . . . smile

      Hi Marcy,

      I was out of the office while the voting was going on, so I didn't get the chance to contribute, but I'm delighted to see that his photo won. I hope he enjoys the camera! Photography and videography are wonderful hobbies to nurture in children. smile

      Was the award given to the person who submitted the photo, or for the photographer who took the photo?

    So happy he won, just goes to show what can be done if we all pull together.

    Yes, our favorite little guy won!  Thank you, thank you, HP Community for making this nine-year-old the happiest kid in the world today!  He learned the official results just before he left for school, and of course was on Cloud Nine all day, I imagine!

    I was out of town all day, but wanted to thank everyone again for all the help. His mom & dad are great friends & we were all up until midnight last night texting each other. As those of you who 'watched the returns closely' know, it was so close - two photos were neck & neck, and for at least an hour, there were only a few votes between them, and sometimes he was in second place. I am so excited that he pulled ahead and had a fairly healthy lead when midnight (Central Time) hit!

    Love you guys - you're the best!

    I love it when everyone can pull together like this.
    So pleased for him.
