VOTE FOR ASHLEY PAIGE AND HER ANIMAL RESCUE! Ashley is a wonderful person that takes the time to help out sweet pups..that need her!!! She is also someone who genuinely cares about things that most celebrities would thing nothing of...doing!
Aside from her animal rescue...she designs...swimwear...now what you may ask does THIS have to do with anything...well maddysen and I were big fans of her show...(especially maddy...) and i wrote in to tell her how much maddy loved her show...and that she had inspired her to create some little knit things too! (well it's maddy and you KNOW the girl loves to make things!!!) well within just minutes of me posting this note to her website...she emailed me back thanking me...!!! now thinking this was just an automated reply...oh noooo...it was ashley her self!!! and tooo boot...she called miss maddy ON HER BIRTHDAY!!! MADDY WAS IN AWE!
ASHLEY is truly a sweet hearted person...that soooo deserves this recognition of this award...(not to say the others don't) but please find it in your heart to swing a vote her way!!!
