    Vote - $25k grant for Iowa special needs children...

    Pepsi, at Pepsi Refresh Project, is giving away various sized grants based on votes recieved. Going for a $25k grant is the Sparkles special needs children cheerleading squad in Bettendorf, IA. My sister is an assistant coach with the program and the grant would be used to help spread the program started at Pleasant Valley High School in Bettendorf to other schools across Iowa and the midwest.

    To vote for the sparkles, go to the link below, and click the 'vote for this idea' button at the bottom of the page.

    Form special-needs cheerleading squads in schools across the country. | Pepsi Refresh Everything

    The top 10 will recieve a grant and the sparkles are currently 39th. Have til Feb 28th to get them into the top 10.

    To get an idea of what the program has done for the special needs children in the area, see the youtube video below of the sparkles on Oprah from November...

    Not sure what the deal is with the link. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. A work around is to go to www.refresheverything.com, then click on the pink 'Neighborhoods' category, click on the $25,000 tab. From there they are arranged by current leaders. The sparkle effect is currently in 39th place, so scroll down til you find them and click on them there or the 'vote for this idea' straight from that page.
