Clay Aiken – Let’s Make A Difference

On Wednesday I was thinking about the National Inclusion Project.  What a joy it has been to see a small idea blossom into a vital organization that is respected by the experts and important for so many young children.

Community has played a vital part in this growing organization.  Those who support the National Inclusion Project feel that they are helping to make a difference.  We know that every donation of time, ideas, or money, helps the Project lead the way for inclusive communities nationwide.

The following are a few of the ways we can “Make A Difference.”

1.  The Pepsi Refresh Challenge:  Just by taking a moment each day in November, we can make a difference by voting in this challenge.  You can vote daily through your email, texting and Facebook.  Don’t forget to get your family, friends, and colleagues to join in the fun.  Just think of all that can be done with $50,000.

We have an awesome partnership with some very dedicated organizations this month so we would also appreciate you voting for them, too. You can go to www.tinyurl.com/pepsinovemberto find the Pepsi links for all of our partners.

You can text the following numbers to PEPSI (73774):

  • 109857 – National Inclusion Project
  • 109468 – SWOOP Wheelchair Ramps
  • 109695 – St. Anthony’s School Computer Lab
  • 109801 – North Central Troy

 In 2009, Christie Cookie had a contest to give away $25,000 to charities. They had more than 300,000 people to vote for their favorite charity and more than 1,800 charities from around the country nominated. They learned so much about different charities and the amazing work they do each day, but also the needs they face. So, they decided to do even more to help by giving back to one charity each month.

Each time our featured cookie tin is purchased in the months of November & December, Christie Cookies will donate 20% of the price of the tin back to us.

So click, order, and enjoy not only amazing cookies but also the feeling of knowing you made a difference to ensure no child sits on the sidelines!

3.  Fun Pasta Fundraiser:  National Inclusion Project’s fundraising efforts are underway and we’re excited to be selling Fun Pasta for our cause !  What a great idea for holiday gift giving or anytime gifts !!

  1. Participating in all of the above!!! Except the cookies, need to go check that one out! I love Wrapping for Inclusion, and I'm set to work a few hours (my work schedule puts a damper on being able to donate more time – dang it).

    Thanks for the great summary!

  2. Don't forget that if you go to Good Shop before you shop online a donation will go to your designated charity as well. They are connected to Good Search.

  3. Thanks for all the information on how we can support The National Inclusion Project. I just placed an order for the Fun Pasta. I'll be putting gift baskets with this pasta. I'm still hoping for the day when NIP will go international, and we in Canada, can do our part, especially with Wrapping for Inclusion. I know a few Canadians that travel to the States, so that they can get involved with the Wrapping for Inclusion. Thanks for bringing this forward Musicfan, so that all can see how we can "Make a Difference".

  4. Thanks musicfan, for your good info of ways to help NIP. We can all "Make A Difference" for these children.
