Please take a moment each day to vote for Strawesome!  We’re entered into the Start Up Nation’s Leading Moms in Business Competition and would love to have your vote daily.  I’ll even giveaway a straw away to 2 lucky random winners who comment on this post and tell me you voted.  The voting ends on April 30, 2014 and on that day I’ll choose the winners randomly who will get a FREE straw from us.  And, if you vote everyday please feel free to comment on this post every day to get more chances to win a straw!
