My mom needs votes!

The situation:
Mission Main St. Grants is giving away 20 $150K grants to small businesses:
https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/benefits
She needs at least 250 Facebook votes by Oct. 17th to make it into the next round.

My Mom's business: My mom's a florist; her shop's name is Island Dreamweaver Flowers. She's always worked with flowers but wasn't until five years ago that she had a shop. She does everything: weddings, funerals, holidays and just because. She also wants to do Welcome Baskets featuring made in Maine products (esp. those from the island) for summer rentals here on the island. You can see her Facebook page here:
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Island-Dreamweaver-Flowers/278792892180581

This grant would enable her to get an actual shop (she currently works out of her home), update old equipment (her flower fridge is older than Moses), more storage/display furniture, more supplies and credit at her wholesalers etc

Why you should vote for her:
My mom is a truly giving person and does a lot for the community. She's Schoolboard Chair, a volunteer EMT, is one of the leaders of PIK (a group that plans fun activities for the Island children), and if there's a Bake Sale, Auction or other event she's there with donations and to help set up/break down and clean up. She's worked as a house painter for most of her life; many years of climbing staging, hauling paint and on her knees redoing floors have taken it's toll on her body, esp her knees (no cartilage left in either and a spur in one). The shop would mean she wouldn't have to continue painting and more importantly she's be doing something she absolutely loves!

To vote click the link: https://www.missionmainstreetgrants.com/business/detail/17277
and then click the "Vote Now"

So if you have a moment please check out the links and vote for my mom! Thank you:)

Is there a way to vote that isn't through facebook?
