According to the UNICEF website:
Syrian children will suffer through another cold winter, and UNICEF is raising funds to provide them warm winter clothing, including 100,000 kits for Syrian children throughout the region.
UNICEF prepared refugee children and their families for the onset of last year’s cold season by installing heaters and water boilers in the camps, providing heated winter tents for use as classrooms and distributing blankets and clothing packages. The humanitarian effort is much more challenging this winter given a tenfold increase in the number of Syrian child refugees — from 70,000 to more than 1 million — in less than a year….
…Help keep Syria’s children warm this winter.
I am so glad that Clay still works with UNICEF. They do so much good for children all over the world.

This is a fill-in ballot so it is pretty easy to vote. Somehow I can think of some people to nominate. I loved Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. If you feel the same, make sure you put it in the category of musical, not play. I also voted for the best ensemble as the brothers were really amazing. The following are a few others that were involved in the musical:
Clay Aiken played Joseph
Bill Nolte played Jacob and the Baker.
Craig Laurie played Reuben and the Butler.
Matthew Ragas was Pharoah.
Jayme McDaniel was Director and Choreogrpher
Set Design: Robert Andrew Kovach
Lighting: Richard Latta
Sound: Adam Shubert
Of course, if you have a different favorite musical or star, vote for your favorite. These are only suggestions.
I have one more favor to ask of you. As many of you know, CANN has both a twitter account and a Facebook account. I am a numbers person so I watch the totals each day. We are so close to some pretty amazing numbers:
