My business could use your support! Small business contest

Hi Guys!
I found out about this contest by Intuit where they give away $5000 to 15 small businesses in the month of December, based on votes, to fulfill a small business wish.
As many of you know, I had some personal finance disaster when my credit card company erronously withdrew $5000 from my personal checking account. I had to drain my business accounts to cover my mortgage and bills, and by the time I was reimbursed, the bills were due again. Consequently, my business money has been tight. In addition to this, I spent a fair amount of money preparing for the hurricane (55g of gas, generator leads, sump pumps, etc etc). While I did not end up being effected by flooding, many of my customers have been. My sales have gone down by over 50%. Normally, this would not be a big deal, but with the credit card debacle, business cash is quite low. You may have noticed that my stocklist is a bit more slim than usual.

I have entered this contest as there is some equipment that I could really use for the fish room. I need a rebuild kit for my central pump, I also really need to get some sort of high quality video capability so that I can add good video to my presentations for clubs and conventions. Lastly, that money woudl go to doing a large livestock order to fill all my empty tanks, and restock many things that I like to keep available at all times.

Your support would be much appreciated, as businesses who receive the most votes are then selected and put to further scrutiny by the judging panel. I would love to upgrade my fishroom and fill those tanks, all while being able to provide higher quality images and videos to help teach my customers about the critters that I love.

The link to vote for my business is:

Thank you!

The misfortune is just life, that is the way it goes I will persevere, and have been looking into small business grants for women business owners, small business loans, and other opportunities to give me a boost. This opportunity just seemed like a good one, and could help with further financing down the road. Ultimately, I would like to build a fish house on my property and expand by about 300% the amount of tanks I have available for quarantine and display

If you're having trouble I might just need to buy from you. Do you have any dwarf cories?
