It is September 1st and it is the first day of voting for The National Inclusion Project at The Pepsi Challenge. This is our opportunity to help raise money and support for Clay Aiken’s very own charity. It won’t cost anything to help and it will take about 1 minute of each day.
In an e-mail, the National Inclusion Project wrote:
The Pepsi challenge is a month-long activity with each registered person able to vote daily through email, Facebook, and/or texting. We have entered the competition for $50,000 and there are 10 winners each month so there is plenty room for our partners and the Project to win.
Please help us achieve success with the Pepsi Refresh Challenge! We need you to vote daily and encourage your friends, neighbors, and anyone else you can think of to vote. You do not need to have a Facebook account to participate, but you will need to setup an account with Pepsi at www.refresheverything.com. It will take only a couple of minutes and then login daily to vote. To sign up for a daily email reminder, visit us at www.inclusionproject.org/pepsi.
Together we can do this and continue to make a difference in the lives of children, thanks for your continued and dedicated support!
According to Aron Hall, the director of Services at the National Inclusion Project, the Pepsi Challenge does not give out the complete details until the last minute. So, the first place to get the instructions will be in the daily reminder from The National Inclusion Project. And, of course, we will publish all the details as soon as we get them.
Aron was kind enough to send us a wonderful letter he received from a parent. He said we could share it with you.
“I just wanted to personally thank you for making room this summer for Jonathan to participate in the inclusion camp. He absolutely loved it. He liked the routine, games and counselors and of course friends he met at the camp. He was the camper of the day for a few times and we were so proud of him. It has been more than a week since his last day at camp; he continues talking about what he would have done now at the camp if he were there. I think he gains more confidence and has gotten more comfortable being around with other kids. I think we made the right move. You have done a wonderful job in finding all those energetic, helpful and enthusiastic counselors. Again, I can go on and on about his camp experience and have nothing negative to say about the camp.
We thank you for providing such a wonderful camp for our children. Please take care and we’ll see you next summer.”
This is why our votes are so important!!
So………lets put this challenge at the top of our “to-do” list. AND, don’t be surprised when we remind you often about the importance of voting this month. I believe we will all feel good as we watch our votes make a difference!
