You've probably seen the commercials for the Pepsi Refresh projects -- enterprising individuals or groups can apply for 'grant' money from Pepsi to fund a community service/good samaritan project. Past projects have been for increasing funding for training guide dogs, giving money to an animal shelter to spay/neuter pets. Currently, "Find a path to the cure for Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC)" is in #2. That's pretty good except only #1 gets the moolah -- guess what 'enterprise' is in the top spot?
The Humane Society of the United States
Big, uh oh! Because, if HSUS wins, they'll be awarded $250,000 to aid their cause. We all know what their cause is and it ain't "Rescue animals from cruelty in underserved communities" (their cause on Pepsi's site). What can you do to help stop HSUS from being awarded the cash? Go to this site http://www.refresheverything.com/cureahc and vote for Finding a Path to Cure Alternating Hemiplegia of Childhood (AHC). These are children that need help, truly. You can kill two birds with one stone -
help find a cure for a children's disease and stop H$U$ from being awarded more money. Vote today AND tomorrow!
Until next time,
