Beginning November 1, we'll need two minutes of your time every day through November 30. And before we get there, we need you to recruit all your friends. We have an opportunity to secure a $25,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh project for the production of our middle school video. Not only will this fund the project from screenplay to credits, but it will also allow us to place a DVD in every Autism Society of America chapter in all 50 United States!
To register to vote, each person with an email address creates a profile with their email address and a password at http://www.refresheverything.com/. Take a look around the site now and get used to voting for your favorite ideas. You have a chance to vote for 10 different ideas daily. Note that you must log in before your vote will be counted. So after you've entered your email address and password, you still have to type in the two scrambled words before you can vote. After you vote, you can share your favorite ideas on Facebook and/or Twitter.
Our idea isn't live yet, so don't bother looking. What we're doing now is directing people to our Facebook page specifically for this grant. By Liking this page, you'll be able to spread the word more easily on FB and we'll be able to remind you every day in November to vote. If you'd rather have an email reminder, just email Chelsea or Denise and we'll put you on a list.
Do you have a wi-fi equipped laptop? Would you be willing to host a voter event at a restaurant, coffee shop, school campus, or other wireless Internet access hot spot in your neighborhood next month? If so, let us know! We'll get you equipped with the necessary information to get voters registered and voting for Good Friend.
Thanks for supporting this important project!!
