Please endorse my idea for Earth Orbs!

Remember the blog I posted about the briquettes we created from waste charcoal and corn cobs? (See blog post for April 18, 2009.) I have entered a contest sponsored by the Peace Corp Association to obtain funding to travel from village to village to train people about how to make these briquettes, which we are calling "Earth Orbs."

Our simple technique for making charcoal Earth Orbs saves trees, creates income sources for villagers and recycles "garbage" into a valuable product. Through our training we expect to model the positive effects of organizing and empowering our communities.
Would you please endorse my idea here:

If we manage to get enough votes, we will be awarded the money to carry out our project. Thanks, and please tell your friends!
