Helping Build a Business and Save Lives

Please help my friend Christien Oliver with his special business opportunity.

From Christien:

"I hope all is well. I am sending you this message because I dont have many friends and allies, and I need all 16 of them--including you--to help me with something big.
Two summers ago my Dad and I started an Internet company: H2bid.com. What does the website do? We're basically the Ikea of water and wastewater contract opportunities. When a city/country needs a new drainage system they request quotes; usually from the 5 vendors they know of. We provide 24/7 access to water and wastewater contract opportunities from around the world to make the process a little more competitive. When your car needs new brake pads you usually get as many estimates as you can. H2bid.com applies the same thinking to the water and wastewater industries.
Aside from not selling furniture, we're different from Ikea in one other major way -- we are not a billion (or even a million) dollar company.
We want to grow our business, and help address the world water crisis in the process. So we entered into the Forbes.com "Boost Your Business" contest, where the grand prize winner will receive a cash prize to invest in their company.
(For more information about the contest please visit: http://boost.perfectprize.com/)
Over 900 small businesses entered the contest. Two weeks ago we were named one of the 20 semi-finalists.
Here's where you come in. The finalists will be selected via online voting starting this Wednesday, August 1st and ending Friday, August 31st.
Forbes.com gets 15 million visitors a day, so I am not just asking you to vote. I am asking you to do four things:
1) Vote at Forbes.com for H2bid.com in the "Boost Your Business" Contest starting August 1 (Wednesday) early and often
2) Ask everyone you know to vote
3) Ask everyone you know to ask everyone they know to vote
AND
4) Get the word out...
(e.g., mention the contest in your blog, post a link on your myspace page, join the forthcoming facebook group, endorse us in the signature of your emails, give H2bid.com a "shout out" at karaoke night)
For more information about H2bid.com, please visit: http://h2bid.com/aboutus.aspx
Thanks in advance for your support. If you have any questions please contact me.
Regards,

--
Christien D. Oliver
H2bid.com, Executive Vice President
-Providing access to water and wastewater contract opportunities from around the world."
