Whatever kind of time you choose –

This is how much time we have left to vote for

The National Inclusion Project

At The

Pepsi Refresh Challenge!

Currently, the National Inclusion Project is in 18th place.  We need to move it up to the top ten!  Just think, $50,000 would fund:

  • Scholarships for children who are unable to afford Let’s All Play Camps.
  • Training for staff across the United States on Inclusion techniques
  • Training Supplies for new staff

Aron Hall, Director of Services at The National Inclusion Project has some last minute suggestions for us to help us move up to the top ten.

We need your help to spread the word so we can bring Let’s ALL Play training to more programs across the nation and open doors for ALL children to participate in all that life has to offer!

Here are ways to recruit potential voters:

1. Home Page Splash: Check out all the ways you can vote by visiting the National Inclusion Project home page!

2. Daily Reminders: Sign up to receive a daily email reminder and become eligible to win a free iPad if we finish in the top 10 and win $50,000! Sign up here: Inclusion Project/Pepsi Challenge.

3. Facebook/Twitter Updates: Join us on Facebook and Twitter!

4. Forward the NIP email, and share the information on message boards, Facebook, Twitter, in blogs.

5. Schedule a group text! Have the attendees turn their cell phone sounds on and walk them through sending a text together. When Pepsi texts back, the feedback will be amazing!

Each person has 30 votes – 10 through texting, 10 through FaceBook and 10 at the Pepsi website.  We can vote for The National Inclusion Project once in each voting group.  The other 27 votes should go to the charities that are a part of a voting alliance formed between the charities.  It’s a win-win situation.  We vote for them and in return, they vote for us.  Besides the extra votes, it’s a great way to introduce the foundation to other people.

Below is the current alliance list from the National Inclusion Project:

Be sure and leave a message so the organizations will know that The National Inclusion Project is supporting their cause.  You can say (copy/paste) something like:

Votes from National Inclusion Project! Help us help kids with disabilities experience life with their peers. We’re going for $50K!!

Only 5,760 minutes left….can we do it?  I think we CAN!!!

I would bet that Clay Aiken is watching the totals and hoping that his “baby” gets some needed support.  I wonder how many friends from Spamalot are helping out.  I bet they would support The National Inclusion Project if they knew about the voting!
