Vote for Efren Penaflorida as CNN Hero of 2009

I have voted for Efren "Kuya Ef!" Penaflorida Jr. of the Philippines as my CNN Hero for the year 2009. Don't miss the chance to vote for him as well, as we appreciate his championing of children through his pushcart classes.

At 28, Efren offers Filipino youth an alternative to gang membership through education. Together with other teen volunteers, they have been roaming around the streets to teach basic reading and writing skills to the needy ones by using a pushcart classroom. Isn't it incredible and heart-warming that someone really cares for the needy, and have actually spent time and labor in providing knowledge to the children of our future? What are you waiting for, vote for Efren today. No limits in voting! Voting ends on November 19 (6AM ET).
