    Default I Need Help From Fellow Firefighters

    I am Aaron Eldridge, a firefighter in Vestavia Hills, Al. Here is my story and what I need from everyone.

    A few weeks ago me and my fiancÚ Anna got picked as one of four couples for a local news station to throw a wedding for. The public will vote on these four couples and the winner will receive a free wedding. This would lift a huge financial burden off us and her mother, who is having to plan a wedding for Anna's sister in December. With being a firefighter I do not have much money that I can contribute, especially when I have chosen to volunteer at my church as my part time job instead of getting supplemental income. I also gave up my truck to Anna this past summer. Her car's A/C went out, and after I got it the windows broke and it started to leak gas. Needless to say the record setting heat of this summer has not been fun. Well, if we win we get a car for two year...so this is also needed. All in all they are giving away a 25,000 wedding, a car for two years, tuxes and wedding dress, wedding bands, and a honeymoon. You can only vote once per computer, so vote on as many as you can and tell all your friends to vote.
    Got to www.nbc13.com and follow the pink "NBC 13 Throws a Wedding" link at the bottom or follow this direct link provided at the bottom of this message.

    How do you vote, I'm either a huge idiot, my computer isn't showing the entire page, or the news page isn't complete. Let us know how it turns out in the end. Have to help out a fellow AL firefighter, I'm from northwest AL, Colbert county.

    Maybe I just missed it, but it would have been nice to read the profiles of the competing couples. How did that one couple get so far ahead???!!!!!

    I voted last night. Good luck.

    After seeing the results you're going to need a lot more help than you're going to get here though! Have you posted this on Firefighter Nation http://www.firefighternation.com/ and other firefighting forums yet?
