Help save the Becky Thatcher house!

This is a cause that my daughter is quite passionate about, so if you have the time to vote with a few clicks, it would be very appreciated.  There are 9 days left for voting and you can vote every day.  The final top two get $250,000 from Pepsi for their cause.

If they don't win, I think my daughter will cry. She's been begging everyone she knows to vote. Actually, if they do win, I think she'll cry,too, but they'll be different tears.

I am copying an email from Henry Sweets, the curator of the Mark Twain Boyhood Home and Museum, whom my daughter met a couple of years ago during a memorable visit to Hannibal.


1) Text Pepsi at 73774 with this numeric message: 104141 – and/or
