Pepsi has launched a new project called the Pepsi Refresh Program...as a way to give back.
The interesting thing about this program is that it involves YOU, YOUR FAMILY and YOUR IDEAS. If you have ever dreamed about giving back to your community but didn't know where to start...NOW is the chance. Anyone over the age of 13 can submit their idea and get a chance to earn a grant-they are giving away over $20 MILLION dollars in grants-to launch your idea!
One thing that I think is SUPER about this, is that Pepsi opted out of advertisement at the SuperBowl, so they could use their money more wisely and support meaningful social engagement...that right there makes me want to go buy LOTS of Pepsi=) Oh wait...I did buy 6 12 packs of Pepsi products today=)
monthly, you have the opportunity to submit a project in one of six categories:
2.)Arts & culture
3.)Food & shelter
Then, at the end of the month, Pepsi will post the top submissions on their website and let YOU vote on who should win grants ranging from $5,000 to $250,000 (totaling up to $1.3 million dollars!)
GET involved...either submit an idea, or VOTE for someone elses!!!
This is such a great idea and I am proud to support Pepsi!
