Resource Center Dallas asks for votes on movie Web site

Could this movie give $10K to the Resource Center Dallas?
Could this movie give $10K to the RCD?

RCD just posted on their Facebook that by voting for their video, the agency could win $10,000. The movie Extraordinary Measures has a tab on their Web site named “Inspirational Quilt.” In it, a variety of videos have been submitted by different nonprofits and charities. It all ties in to the inspirational feel of the film, you realize. Well, the RCD submitted a video to put their hat in the game.

The random drawing happens Feb. 5, and the “the Grand Prize Winner will be announced on or about Feb. 8.” As of now, there are 11 pages of virtual quilt but I found the RCD’s vid on the first page.

Voice, LifeBark and you (and your pooch)

3dogs

Dallas Voice is looking for nude models. Don’t worry if you haven’t been the gym lately or are even a little camera shy. Because it’s not you who will be nude — it will be your dog.

We’re gearing up with the Readers Voice Awards next spring, where we declare the top dogs in a variety of categories — and what better way to introduce the winners than with our readers’ own “top dogs.”

So here’s the deal: We want you to submit photos of your pooch or pooches. You can be in it or not. You can dress up Fido if you wanna (naked animals are OK), but that’s up to you. In fact, there are virtually NO limits on what you submit … as long as there’s a dog in the pic. Once we get all the entries, the we’ll be selecting the top 10. Those finalists will come in for their own professional photoshoot and those pictures will be put up on the Web site for readers to vote on. The winner gets to be the face of the Readers Voice Awards. (The nine other finalists will be part of the spread, too.)

But that’s not all. The winning team (pet and master) will have $2,500 donated in their names to AIDS Arms’ LifeBark 2010 as a “dogleg-up” on on next year’s LifeWalk event (which can be in addition to any funds you raise yourself if you wanna set some kind of crazy fundraising record).

Don’t take too long, though. The deadline to submit your photo is Dec. 4. E-mail it to TopDog@dallasvoice.com. Yippie dogs go to the front of the line. (Not really, but they think they do.)

So get moving! Who’s a good fella? Who? You is!

One day left to win free trip to Dallas Pride offered by GLBT Dallas

Yes, we know what you’re thinking, “Why would I want to win a trip to Dallas, I live here.” But this isn’t a time to reflect on your own needs. Think of your friends in faraway lands that could get a chance to see Big D in its rainbow basking splendor during September.

GLBT Dallas  wants people to “experience Pride firsthand” by offering  the contest winner and his or her guest a three-night getaway which includes airfare, hotel and passes to local attractions. The highlight of the weekend of course would be the Alan Ross Texas Freedom Parade Sunday, September 20. But the contest ends tomorrow so step to it by heading here.
