Pepsi Refresh Program Makes a Positive Impact3:08 PM
I love a little friendly competition, especially when it benefits the community! Pepsi has created the Pepsi Refresh program as a way of saying "thank you" to those most innovative with their outreach efforts.
Pepsi will accept 1000 ideas every month from people, businesses, and non-profits, and visitors to the Pepsi Refresh site can vote for up to 10 every day (you can even vote for your own idea!) Pepsi will then award grants towards making these ideas happen! Grants come in $5K, $25K, $50K, and $250K, and several will be awarded every month! Several categories of ideas are already filling up, including health, food/shelter, and education. What a great way to make a difference (and earn funding for you project!)
You won't have to start from scratch, though. The website contains tools to help you craft your idea and get started, plus ideas for helping promote your idea for even more votes!
Do you have a great idea ready to happen? Check out the Pepsi Refresh Project to see if you might be able to make it a reality! You can also connect via Twitter (@Pepsi) or Facebook!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Pepsi Refresh. Mom Central sent me a gift card to thank me for taking the time to participate.
