The month of October is becoming a full and exciting month for fans of Clay Aiken. Perhaps the most important task for the month is the voting for The National Inclusion Project at the Pepsi Refresh Challenge. Fans are determined that October will be National Inclusion Month at Pepsi.
Besides voting, fans are recruiting as many voters as they can find. Clay fans are so inventive and they have so many good ideas. It is great to see the many ideas and watch as the hard work puts the Project closer to the win.
I would like to recommend two wonderful blogs that will give you great information and suggestions about voting and supporting at the Pepsi Challenge. Both sites have wonderful details that you might be able to use as you recruit new voters to the cause.
Visit: The Life And Times of A Clay Aiken Fan. The author, SueReu has listed some of the wonderful charities that are also working for votes. You will learn so much when you read this informative blog.
Next, visit: Carolina on My Mind. Caro has a list of suggestions for enlisting friends, organizations, work associates and even “AuntSuzi.” She also researched what some of the winners from last month did to get voters. Thanks, Caro, for all the great information.
It is also wonderful to see the exciting threads on the fan boards. Magicalmusic has set up a voting thread at the ClayBoard. It is a great resource and headquarters where fans can get updated information and discuss the newest information. Magical is a great cheerleader and encourages all to VOTE 3 WAYS!!
In just 10 days, some lucky Clay fans will be in Chicago for a wonderful Clay Aiken concert at the Park West Theatre.
