Dan Wallrath: A CNN Hero Has Shot At $100,000

Houston-area homebuilder Dan Wallrath is a finalist with a chance for $100,000 if he's chosen as a "CNN Hero" for his work providing homes for Iraq and Afghanistan vets.

You just have to vote for him.

For five years, Wallrath has been building homes for wounded vets.

"As one of the semi-finalists, Wallrath receives $25,000 and will be honored during the program CNN's Heroes: An All-Star Tribute airing from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles Nov. 25 at 8 p.m.," CNN spokesperson Margo Donohue tells hair Balls. "The general public ultimately chooses the CNN Hero of the Year via online voting which is open now at www.CNNHeroes.com and the person receiving the most online votes receives $100,000 more."

So go give a vote for Operation Finally Home. You can consider yourself a mini-hero.
