Background info:

Playpumps International is a company that builds drinking water systems in impoverished regions of the world. The concept involves a merry-go-round connected to a pump that moves the water from a deep well into a elevated holding tank, where it is then made available for public consumption.


They are currently having a contest to create a 30-second PSA video, and my brother-in-law is one of the six finalists. He's trailing in third place currently, but I know we can remedy that situation.

Not only should you go vote for his video, because I'm asking you to, but you should vote for his video because it's far and away the best of the bunch. Unfortunately, I just found out about this contest and voting ends in two days.

You know what to do.

It's "For the Children"TM.

And, thanks.
