One click worth of 0,1% of a PC for a boy

  1. Dec 6, 2008 #1
    Dear PF members,

    this is completely off-topic, but I ask you for a vote in an internet contest.
    You should go to


    and press "Blasot par šo stāstu" (="Vote for this story").

    This is a special charity site set up by our telecom operator.
    The point is to try to win a computer for our neighbour's boy Raitis.
    They are a low income familty but the is talented and hard working.
    My wife's story describes his situation, and needs to be voted for
    (one vote per IP). We need to get beyond 500 votes,
    this would give the entry 50% of max score. The other half is decided
    by a 5 person committee beyond our control.

    For those who interested I can translate the story
    (or you can try it in Google Translate which added Latvian not long time ago).

    Thanks and sorry for distraction!

    P.S. I'm sorry if you classify this as spam. In such a case admins have the right to remove this thread,of course.

    Just learned that same IP coiunts many times, just need to have at least 24 hours between the votes. So those who sympathize with the story, please, vote daily to reach the target (500 votes)! Thanks.
