If you haven't heard, the teams from Best of the Web and the Internet Marketers of New York are throwing their third charity party later this month during Search Engine Strategies New York. This time around, they've decided to let the Internet marketing community decide which charity the event should benefit. They asked four industry folks to back a charity and they're asking YOU to cast your vote. I'm one of the four and as you can imagine, I'm pushing for the event to benefit the HMBANA Milk Banks.

Voting ends tonight at midnight, and the Milk Bank is in a tight race with the National Association for Colitis and Crohn's Disease to be the winning charity. If you've got a spare second, I'd greatly appreciate your vote. Milk banking still operates well under the radar, with few people even having heard of it. This makes fundraising difficult and leaves tons of premature infants who desperately need donor milk unable to get it due to lack of supply. With donor milk proven to reduce NICU stays by 20% and giving amazing protection against deadly diseases like Necrotizing Entercolitis, we need your help to snag every penny possible.

Please visit the SES NY Charity Party voting site and cast your vote for the milk banks.
