Help St. Michael’s Smarten Up!

October 6, 2010

The students at St. Michael the Archangel in Leawood are asking for our help. It’s an easy thing to do, if you could spare about one minute each day until the end of October.

They’re finalists for a $50,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh program to purchase smartboards for their school.  In a nutshell, they made a fun music video and submitted it along with an application for the money. They were chosen as one of 10 projects vying for the money. The winner will be chosen by votes online during October.

To help them out by voting for them each day this month, visit and bookmark http://www.smawin.com/.  The page explains the various ways you can vote – and it spells it out with very easy-to-follow instructions. After you log in the first time, it will be a really quick thing to stop in and vote each day. They have partnered with some other finalists to share support and votes, so make sure to vote for the other projects listed, as well.

Our votes and prayers are with you, St. Michael’s! Good luck.

Pepsi Refresh offers grants in the amounts of $5,000, $25,000, $50,000 and $250,000 EVERY MONTH. Read more about the Pepsi Refresh program while you’re on the site (http://www.refresheverything.com/how-it-works). We’d love to consider this program as a possible funding source for the much-needed windows/air-conditioning for our school. If you could help coordinate the effort to apply and get out the vote, please contact me. It would take several people to make this happen, so if you could help, let me know!
