VIDEO: Daughter of same-sex couple can win big and she needs your help

Olivia Kelly, a Massachusetts teenager who shared her heart-warming story of her mom marrying another woman, is now a finalist for a $50,000 scholarship and she needs your help!

The popular online dating site is running its first ever MatchMade Scholarship Contest to offer a college scholarship to the child of a parent who married through the site. The contest is in its final phase and the rules are simple: the video with the most shares on Facebook or Twitter wins!

14-year-old Olivia entered the contest, producing a video with her stepsister Lucia in which they share the story of how their moms met through the site 3 years ago. The two girls were ecstatic when their moms "proposed" to them, asking if they wanted to become sisters and start a new family. Olivia's video is among the five finalists, and the only one that features a same-sex couple. 

According to Olivia, "We are probably the happiest family you'll ever see." She told, "We’ve all found people to love for the rest of our lives. I have the sibling I've always wanted, my sister has someone to look up to, and my parents no longer feel lonely."
