Vote for the Maritime in the Pepsi Refresh Project
Monday, January 17, 2011
You can help the Maritime Aquarium support more than 450 families of active servicemen and women by helping them win a $50,000 grant this month from The Pepsi Refresh Project.
If The Maritime Aquarium gets enough votes in January to win the grant, it will use the money to provide one-year Aquarium memberships to more than 450 area families who currently have a member of their household on active duty in the U.S. military.
All you need to do to help is to vote each day, between now & 31, online and/or by cell-phone text. And to encourage your friends, relatives and Facebook friends to vote too.
You can vote for The Maritime Aquarium’s $50,000 grant request each day in January in two ways:
– go online to www.refresheverything.com/tmanorwalk.
– and use your cell phone and text 105386 to Pepsi (73774). Standard text rates apply.
The Pepsi Refresh Project is a monthly grant contest where the winners are determined simply by how many public votes they receive. Up to 1,000 proposals are submitted – and voted on – each month in four grant levels. At the end of each month, the top 10 vote-getters in three levels – $5,000, $25,000 and $50,000 – get the money to do their projects. At the $250,000 level, only the top two vote-getters win.
