Infinite Family Founder is CNN TOP TEN HERO

Amy Stokes with the Net Buddies of Infinite Family's video mentoring program, South Africa

Amy Stokes, Infinite Family Founder, is a TOP TEN CNN HERO of 2011. The award recognizes everyday people changing the world. Infinite Family believes that African teens will have a better chance of becoming productive members of their schools, communities, and countries when encouraged and supported by a mentor. The approach is powerful and transforming. Adults anywhere in the world mentor African teens individually and face-to-face via the internet.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Your votes can propel Amy to CNN Hero of the Year which results in an award of $250,000 for Infinite Family. This is really important to us and our African Net Buddies.

So please vote and vote often--up to 10 times per day from each email account until all votes are tallied on December 7th! And please ask your friends to vote.
