Back in August ColaLife was encouraged by supporters to enter the Making More Health competition so we did, along with more than 470 others from 82 countries. On 9 November 2011 the 13 finalists were announced and ColaLife was amongst them. The public is now invited to vote to determine the competition’s three winners, who will each receive a $10,000 (US) cash prize to help further their idea. So now it’s over to you!
This is a plea to ask you to vote for ColaLife. Voting takes less than a minute (honestly). Click here, click the green VOTE button, enter your email address and town and that’s it. Thank you! Voting closes on 30 November.
Once you’ve voted you can help us further by telling your friends and work colleagues and encouraging them to vote for us too. The short url for the voting page is: http://colalife.org/vote. Just pass this on.
According to the organisers – Ashoka Changemakers and Boehringer Ingelheim – the finalists represent the most innovative and promising solutions from around the globe that are transforming the field of health. Finalists were selected by the competition’s panel of expert judges, which included Aman Bhandari of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Carol A. Dahl, executive director of The Lemelson Foundation, and Andreas Barner, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors for Boehringer Ingelheim.
