Hi – We are at 700 votes – and need a total of 1,605 to receive $2,500 for our wildfire and emergency alerts! Special favor – can you please pass this along to your lists? Ideal4aCause is donating money for EVERY vote cast to East County Magazine to expand our free Viejas Wildfire & Emergency alerts service as fire season approaches. We need equipment and manpower to help keep everyone safe and informed in East County and across the San Diego region. Thanks! - Miriam

Ideal4aCause has chosen East County Magazine’s Viejas Wildfire & Emergency Alerts as one of just four nonprofit causes it is supporting in its “Vote for a Better San Diego” contest! We earn money for every vote cast between Sept. 21 and Sept. 30.
Voting takes just a moment. If we get 1,650 votes in San Diego County, we get $2,500! Please vote TODAY . (1 vote person; only San Diego County votes will be counted.) Please forward this message and your friends, family and coworkers to vote, too!
Ideal4acause is a brand new local website that also offers great daily deals from 50%-90% off on local restaurants, spas, and more in San Diego. The twist is they donate 10-20% of each purchase back to nonprofits like ours!
In addition to earning up to $2,500 in this week’s contest for votes, the contest winner will also be scheduled to be featured in their own individual fundraising drive on the website.
This money is greatly needed to purchase equipment such as a mobile scanner and to expand our number of monitors, especially during the night, so we can improve our ability to keep you safe and informed!
Will you please vote now, and forward this request others? It’s easy! Just click here to vote: . Help us protect you before the next wildfire strikes! Fire officials warn this could be the worst fire season in years, due to heavy winter rains/brush growth and cutbacks in firefighting funding and manpower.
