I'm sure some of you have heard of the Pepsi Refresh Everything grant. In case you haven't, Pepsi is basically giving away millions of dollars every month to various causes submitted by everyday people wishing to help out in their community. Ideas that people submit are voted on every month, with the winners receiving grants. My high school Earth Club submitted an idea this month that would allow the purchase of several wind turbines to provide an alternative source of energy for our school district. It would lessen our reliance on traditional energy, as well as provide an opportunity to educate students and community members about the benefits of alternative energy. To receive the grant, we have to be in the top ten of the $50,000 grant grouping, and we are currently ranked #12. If you could help us out, it would be greatly appreciated, and you'd be doing the Earth a big favor, not just immediately, but also in the long run as something like this would spread awareness greatly.
Here's the link to our idea:
It'll take probably about a minute to register and vote. Thanks!
P.S. Feel free to spread the word!
