Idol Gives Back

While I have your attention - thanks to the voting currently going on - I figured I'd use the platform to help get something done!

I have a friend trillsie - wife of LJ Idol Season 3 fan favorite zebrapix btw and an amazing person in her own right - who is helping organize an effort for a 13 year old boy dying of cancer.

He apparently wants to visit all 50 US states, but since he can't, the states are coming to him in the form of t-shirts.

Not money, not the usual things you hear about - but t-shirts with the name of the state on them. He wears adult size small.

She has a list of the states still needed, and the details of all this here: http://trillsie.livejournal.com/306284.html

Heck, there are enough of you who reading this who are international, that maybe that could be done as well. . . *shrug* I don't know. I just know that *I* want to see the entire country one day, and I can't even imagine what it must be like to, at 13,know that it will never happen.

So if you think you can help, click on that above link!

Results and the TOP FIVE

Well, we have our 5, with tryslora going down swinging with one of her best entries to date. She went from practically vanishing at times in the middle of the pack to absolutely shining and continuing to impressive as she made her way, ultimately, to #6!

Out of a crowded field of 72, that's quite a feat. Congratulations to her for making it that far - and congratulations to our top 5 for making it to this point.

The competition has heated up in a major way and it really is anyone's game.

Who will have what it takes to make it to the finals????

agirlnamedluna: The Sentimental Favorite who emerged from the middle of the pack to her rightful place among the top contenders. She's the second "non US resident" to make it to this point, and the soon to be mother of the first LJ Idol baby, and may very well be letting us name her first born should she win!! (ok, probably not, but she *might*)

bettybaker: The Odds On Favorite The "Sexy Wisewoman" has risen up the ranks the old fashioned way, one vote at a time. . . emerging as the one with the most momentum and a continually growing fan base. Has she peaked or just hit her stride?

spydielives: The Contestant's Favorite: the winner of the Spirit of LJ Idol award, given by her fellow contestants. a consistant dedicated performer who came out of nowhere with hard work and a focused drive.

twirlandswirl: The Dark Horse Favorite. Why the dark horse??? That's an awfully big statement. But she is the only veteran left in this competition... and that's by a technicality! She signed up last season and forgot about it, and was the first one eliminated!!! She's already the youngest to make it this far, can she be the first to go from last to first?

welfy: The Early Favorite. She missed the very first round and would have been eliminated had she not decided to post an entry anyway, to show what she could do... and wow, did she show it!! Since then she's been at the top of most people's lists as "the one to beat"!
