Nov. 4, 2010 - PRLog -- Hillsboro, Oregon, October 24, 2010.  Every month, thousands of fans vote for their favorite businesses to win small business grants from Intuit’s LoveALocalbusiness.com. These grants help small business gain notoriety and funding, while allowing their supporters a chance to sing their praises. Ellechor Publishing House, a new publisher of Christian fiction and non-fiction literature based in Beaverton, Oregon, is the local business randomly selected in September to win a $5,000 grant.
E llechor Publishing House is the first business in Intuit’s Love A Local Business grant competition to both rank #1 on The Pulse, the monthly top 10 list of most loved businesses, and to be randomly selected as a winner. The owner, her staff and authors reached out to friends and family to gain support, but other local businesses soon stepped up. Going business to business on foot, the owner Rochelle Carter commented that she barely had to ask for support in some buildings. “One gentleman took one look at the flyers in my hand and told me I could post it in his window.” She said, adding, “He even made sure I left a stack by the front!”
Rochelle described her response to the outpouring of support for her new business, “I’m overwhelmed.  The authors, my friends and family – and their friends and family – made a huge deal about getting out the vote all over Facebook.” She plans to use the grant money to help fund their big launch in January.  
This was the winning nomination: “I appreciate Ellechor Publishing House and their commitment to producing quality inspirational books that will glorify and honor God, all my best!”
