    Hello Blackhatters,


    I dabble in Internet marketing and love this community, but I am a full time animal rescuer here in Australia.

    A lovely lady has just nominated me for a grant to help me rescue more battery hens and rehome them into loving, forever homes.

    We are currently in 3rd place and I really need your help to get some more votes, so we can keep the Hen Rescue going. All you need to do is click on the vote button, enter your email address and then confirm.

    Only one vote per person per dream (Keeping it white hat for this one).

    If you think it would suck to be a hen stuck in a battery cage for 2 years, before being sent to slaughter and would like to help animals I would be so grateful if you would take a moment to vote, or even share the link on your Twitter or Facebook.

    If you type in the URL sunsuperdreams.com.au/dream/view/rescue-and-rehome-battery-hens-in-nsw you will be taken to the right page. Then all you need to do is click vote, enter your name and email address and then verify your email. Simple!


    Thank You xxx

    I didn't know they ran on batteries.

    Just kidding . . . Going to vote now. :)

    Cheers! - "Wiz"

    EDIT: I voted and verified by email. Good luck! :)

    Are these hens frozen, or pre-cooked?

    The least you can do for that terrible joke is to go and vote for me ;)

    The life of a caged hen is pure hell...

    Unless we step in and rescue them that is. And if we get enough votes we will be able to rescue a lot more hens.

    The url is sunsuperdreams.com.au/dream/view/rescue-and-rehome-battery-hens-in-nsw

    Yah, well they want email confirmation and I'm not doing that. Seems too scammy for me. I'll do this for you:

    Also, you might try the President. I heard he's a Good Friend of the Chickens:

    I just voted for you.

    That's awesome what you're doing for the animals. I can't imagine what it would be like to live in those conditions for so many years. No living thing should ever have to go through it.

    Helping animals is a passion of mine too, so if you ever need help with anything or want me to vote on other stuff just drop me a PM :)

    I think they just want email confirmation so that people don't keep entering made up email addresses. Pretty standard I think. This is a well known promotion in Australia. Thanks anyway.

    Has anyone got any other ideas of how I could drum up votes?

    I am lagging quite a way behind in 3rd place. Thinking of printing up some flyers/posters and handing them out around local shopping centres. Most of my votes so far have come from Facebook.

    Any ideas would be welcome. Thanks.

    I think Facebook is going to be your best option for getting the most amount of people and taking it viral.

    Try to find other animal related pages/groups and comment on their walls to see if they could help out. There are a ton of pages related to helping dogs, cats, and other animals. One post can reach hundreds or thousands of people.

    Thanks for the tip. I will definitely be spending a lot of time on Facebook today, as I have a lot of catching up to do with votes. We are rescuing some more hens today, so I'm hoping once I post up some pictures on our Facebook page that will encourage people to vote. Last month we would have been in the lead with this many votes, but this month the competition is insane!

    I wish I had set my FB page up as a group now, because then I could have emailed everyone. We have about 3000 fans, but they are not very responsive.
