We are delighted to share the news that Tegu is being considered for a sizable video grant from Free Range Studios. These guys are the makers of the tremendously successful, multi-million viewed piece “The Story of Stuff“. READ: Please resist the urge to dismiss this posting — we need YOUR help.
In true web2.0 style, the winners will be selected by public vote. This is where YOU (yes, you) come in. If you’re reading this posting right now and you have less than 1 minute to spare, you can do our toy company a huge favor by casting THREE (yes, 3) votes for us to be the winners. Currently, we’re top of the charts on the voting scale in the Socially-Responsible for-Profit category with 520 votes.
Go to Free Range’s Voting Portal and click the “VOTE NOW” button. You’ll be directed to the Environment and Conservation page (see screen shot below).

When that page loads, you’ll see “Tegu: Toys to Change a Nation“. Underneath the voting counter, click “vote” 3 times to give us your 3 (no pressure!!).
