Please note the following:

Election Day, Tuesday, November 4, 2014

That ID could be a SC Driver’s License, a SC DMV ID card, a SC Voter Registration card with photo, a U.S. Passport, or a Federal Military ID with a photo.

Chase Allen of the Iron Fish Art Gallery on Daufuskie Island is a contestant in Martha Stewarts "American Made" Contest

Daufuskie Islands on Artist Chase Allen of the Iron Fish Art Gallery has moved to the #1 Spot in Martha's Stewarts contest "American Made". All proceeds from the win will go to help a local cancer patient.

Little Holmes is fighting a valiant battle…Let’s help Chase Allen win funds to help with his medical expenses.

***

Daufuskie Friends:

Daufuskie Island resident and artist CHASE ALLEN is competing to win an "American Made" contest sponsored by the Martha Stewart magazine, and is particularly well-positioned to win the 2014 Audience Choice Award Winner. As of this morning, he has moved into 1st Place!!!

This is a true David and Goliath story….Imagine a business from tiny Daufuskie beating out thousands of other companies around the country for this prestigious award!!

WHY IT IS IMPORTANT THAT CHASE WINS THIS AWARD

Chase deserves this award on merit alone, as anyone who has visited the IRON FISH GALLERY will agree. More importantly, though, Chase intends to donate the entire $10,000 award to very worthwhile causes, with the majority of it going to help pay the medical bills of sweet 6-year old Holmes Desmelik who is battling a brain tumor.

The remaining $3,000 will be distributed to three great causes: Doctors Without Borders, the Alzheimer’s Foundation, and the Ankylosing Spondylitis Association.

If Chase wins this competition, it will provide a major boost for the family of little Holmes, and help several worthwhile organizations. It also will bring much needed attention to Daufuskie Island, and really help put our little island on the map. (There's already been a nice segment by WSAV Channel 3 in Savannah on this story: http://www.wsav.com/story/26670212/another-local-business-recognized-in-american-made-contest)

WHY ALL DAUFUSKIE ISLAND FOLKS ARE NEEDED TO HELP OUT

This contest is very, very close! There are 4000 contenders around the country. Other leading businesses from much larger areas than tiny Daufuskie are aggressively seeking votes, and the lead has switched back and forth a number of times. To win, Chase needs a strong and sustained group effort by the entire Daufuskie community!!

HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP

Register to vote at The Iron Fish “American Made by Martha Stewart” profile page: http://www.marthastewart.com/americanmade/nominee/89533/crafts/the-iron-fish-by-chase-allen.

1) Click the vote button from Chase’s profile page and you will be directed to a sign-in page. On this page, you must click on the REGISTER button. Enter your email and provide a password.

2) Once you are registered, go back to Chase’s profile page. YOU CAN VOTE SIX TIMES FOR HIM, AND ARE ELIGIBLE TO VOTE AGAIN EVERY DAY UNTIL OCTOBER 13TH! Remember to vote EVERY day, since consistent voting will the they key to success for Chase!

3) Pass this along to your friends and family and ask they to help with this campaign! Please post on your Facebook page if you have one.

***

So everyone, please take a few minutes to help Chase, little Holmes Desmelik and other worthwhile causes by registering and voting six times every day until the contest ends on October 13th.

Finding your remote paradise: Daufuskie Island, South Carolina

South Carolina Top Blogs


Intriguing, romantic, mysterious, unspoiled these are words often used to describe Daufuskie, a remote two and one half by five mile island situated on the east Atlantic coast between Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and Tybee Island, Georgia. Daufuskie's natural beauty and rich history have been the inspiration for many artist, writers and tourists.

Without a bridge to the mainland, Daufuskie is accessible only by passenger ferry or private boat. Located at the southernmost tip of South Carolina, Hilton Head is its closest neighbor with travel time between the two ranging from 15 to 45 minutes depending on the location of the embarkation ports. Savannah, Georgia, another historic city, is located south of the island, approximately an hour away by water.  




  Visitors to Daufuskie won't find a traffic light, a bank, a drive-through restaurant, or a drugstore.
Instead they encounter a magnificent display of nature, unspoiled by overpopulation or commercialism. Maritime forests border the beaches, and woods filled with towering pines and ancient live oaks dripping with Spanish moss characterize much of the 5,000-acre barrier island. Loggerhead turtles returning to nest on the island's beaches, alligators sunning themselves on lake banks, bald eagles scouting for afternoon meals, pods of dolphins performing daily jumping exhibitions, herds of deer dining on island vegetation, and black fox squirrels scurrying about golf course greens are common sights for residents and visitors. Traffic jams consist of more than two golf carts at an intersection, and sounds of city sirens are replaced by the serenades of hoot owls and the synchronistic peeps and croaks of tree frogs. Because there are few lights on the island, night skies produce dazzling displays of shooting stars and far-off galaxies while sunrises and sunsets paint the skies with a spectacular array of colors every dawn and dusk. Crowds on Daufuskie's quiet beaches are likely to consist of scavenging seagulls rather than sunbathing tourists. The Daufuskie Island Conservancy, founded in 2005, is a good resource for more about the island's natural environment and the programs that are in place to preserve and protect it.
