Help Discovery Place win!

Discovery Place is a finalist in Toyota's 100 Cars for Good program and needs your vote TODAY to win a new car. If Discovery Place wins, they'll use the vehicle for its ScienceReach program, which brings the wonder of science to nearly 60,000 students every year.

But, first, the Discovery Place folks need you to log in to Facebook and place your vote TODAY - and for you to share the news with friends and family so they vote, too.

As of 9 a.m. today, Discovery Place was a distant second in the votes for the five nonprofits of the day. They need your vote.

While you're voting, make sure to watch the video entry to get a flavor for ScienceReach - and get a laugh as a Discovery Place staffer tries to climb into a toy car!

Three other local nonprofits have already won: Cindy's Hope Chest of Indian Trail, which helps women with breast cancer; the Human Society of Concord & Greater Cabarrus County; and North Mecklenburg Animal Rescue.

Voting for another local charity, Petey's Promise of Concord, is Aug. 11. Petey's Promise provides financial assistance to people who can't afford to feed their family pets.
