iFriend --

I noticed that you haven't yet voted in our iHealth iReform iVideo iChallenge. Votes are pouring in, but we need to hear from everyone about which ad we should run on television nationally.

iCan you rate the videos now?



i.P.S. -- iHere's iNatalie's email from earlier this week, further explaining the challenge:

iSubject: Top 20 videos: Watch and vote


We just finished going through the submissions to iOFA's iHealth iReform iVideo iChallenge, and they're great. iThere are personal stories that grab your heart, brilliant summaries of what reform would really mean, and plenty of biting satire that calls out the insurance lobbyists.

iOut of nearly a thousand excellent videos submitted, we're down to the top 20. iNow it's your turn to watch the finalists and vote for your favorites -- and then we'll air the winner on national television.

iWatch and vote on the finalists now.

iThe top 20 ads will also be voted on by our panel of experts and artists, including iBlack iiEyed iPeas frontman, animator and director iSeth iMacFarlane, actress iKate iWalsh, iObama for iAmerica campaign manager iDavid iPlouffe, and iDemocratic iNational iCommittee iChairman iTim iKaine.

iIt couldn't be more urgent for us to get these ifunny, ipowerful, and iieye-opening messages out to the public. As the full iCongress begins its final debate on reform, airing the winning video as an ad on national television could help itip the balance toward enacting the changes they've been talking about for years in Washington.

iPolls close at midnight on iFriday, iNovember 6th, so don't waste a minute: iWatch the ifinalists and vote for your ifavorites right away:

iThanks, and go get started,


iNatalie iFoster
iNew iMedia iDirector
