Vote for a hero

Maria Ruiz was born in the US and lives in El Paso just across the border from Juarez. When she visited relatives for a funeral she found people living in squalor. Her heart went out to the 1200 hungry kids in one small village area.They were attending makeshift schools made of wooden pallets which had no electricity and no running water.

Maria started a feeding program. For three years, she would cook all night in her home at El Paso, cross the border and feed 1200 kids a day, five days per week. Vote for Maria. I did. If she wins, the money will go toward a feeding and community center. Voting ends Nov. 20.
