“We all won,” said homeowner Kristy Powell, who designed and created many of the decorations. “There are a lot of needs at the schools. This is not going to fix it all, but it will help. This is a blessing.”
The Powells' home in California jumped out to a massive lead the moment voting opened up, thanks to support from the Davis Enterprise newspaper and a concerted effort by the community, both online and on the streets.
Powell even had her kids and some of their friends hand out hundreds of fliers downtown to encourage people to vote.
