Vote in the Faith and Labor Picnic Contest for the Chance to Win a Free Family Ticket!

It's week two in our contest for two free family tickets to the Faith and Labor Picnic, coming up in just two weeks on Labor Day! Six people responded to my invitation to post their best reason for coming to the Faith and Labor Picnic. Now, you can enter the contest for a free family ticket to the picnic (worth $30) by voting for your favorite reason.

How to enter the contest:

1) Read the six reasons below and decide which one gets your vote.

2) Post a comment with your vote and your full name. (For example: My vote is for reason #4, Rebekah Gienapp). If you are not on the WIN email list, please also post your email address so I can contact you if you win. You can choose to post your comment using the "anonymous" profile, but you must include your name to be entered in the contest.

3) One winner will be drawn at random from all those who vote. The other winner will be the person whose reason gets the most votes.

Reason #1
I love the picnic because of the way it brings together good-hearted folks of different faiths, colors and ages. Every year when I look out at the crowd, I feel I'm getting a glimpse of God's kingdom.

Reason #2

I think going to the picnic would be wonderful experience. I would meet and learn so much for regulars. I usually volunteer to help others but it will be a great experience. I'm very interested in helping other get the wages they need in order to support their families. I think having picnic will unite so many different backgrounds to a common goal.

Reason #3
The best reason to attend the picnic is to interact with others who have experienced discrimination in hiring, pay, and job loss. The more people that share their experiences, the more of a 'working force' we become.

Reason #4
Last chance to show off your white summer sandals.

Reason #5

This will be my eighth (8) year of having a freedom holiday, free from labor such as cooking for my family. They all know that on Labor Day nothing is being served at my house, I have attended every Faith and Labor Picnic since its inception. I encourage them to attend also, and most do attend each year. By doing so, they are supporting a very worthy organization, Workers Interfaith Network. The picnic is its most effective fundraiser each year. WIN is consistently working to improve the conditions in which many low wage workers have to endure in their struggle to provide for themselves and their families. I don't know of a more hardworking group of people than the committed Staff and Volunteers of Workers Interfaith Network.

What great fun my family and I always have at these family oriented picnics, there are activities for children, good food and fellowship, door prizes and even entertainment for the whole family. Don't pass us this opportnunity to serve other while you are being served. I encourage you to come see for yourself and leave the cooking to someone else.

Come out and support WIN, and you will be glad that you did.

Reason #6
It is a fun way to support WIN who helps those in need--"one of the least of these."
