Thanks very much to the folks who've visited my blog in the past few hours and used their Facebook account to vote for The Animation Academy in the Mission Small Business Program.
We have 394 votes and are among the top vote getting businesses in Burbank! We needed 250 to qualify! There's 24 hours left before the deadline. Sure would be nice to hit 400. There aren't very many businesses registered in the program that have made it to that mark nationwide.
I've submitted the school's application earlier this evening. If Chase Bank likes what they read, well, we could get lucky. We'll know by September 15 if we're one of 12 small businesses that are awarded a $250,000 grant.
So thank you again! You've been great! Thank you for voting. If you're reading this and still haven't voted please consider doing so.
Go to MissionSmallBusiness.com and login with Facebook.
Search for The Animation Academy and click VOTE.
The more votes we get, even at the last minute, the better impression we'll make on the review board.
This has taken a lot of my time and attention over the past few days. Now that it's behind me we can get back to some creative fun. So please take a second and give your Facebook vote to a very deserving small but significant business in Burbank, California, the international capital of the animation industry. Vote for the Academy and make us look even better!
Thanks once more and with much appreciation.
