Day +426: Help!!! Need Votes for Max's Meals!!!!

It's day +426 for Max and he is doing great! I have LOTS I want to blog about from the parties still and the end of the school year but, I'm going to save that for later and just ask you for some help right now.

A few months ago, I learned about something cool that Pepsi is doing to help improve communities throughout the U.S. They started a project called Pepsi Refresh where they are giving away $1.3M each month to fund great ideas, as they put it. They say, "we're looking for people, businesses, and non-profits with ideas that will have a positive impact. Look around your community and think about how you want to change it."

I tried for two months to get Max's Meals entered in the running for some funding and finally realized I had to stay up til midnight on the last day of the month in order to get the idea submitted. Last month, I finally got the idea in and I just found out this morning that it was approved!!! That means that Max's Meals is now in the running to receive a $5,000 grant from Pepsi if we get enough votes to be in the top 10.

So, here's the bottom line...I need your help. With your support and votes, Max's Meals can get a serious chunk of change to provide comfort to all the inpatient families in the Hem/Oc/BMT units at Cincinnati Children's. All you need to do is go to the link below and vote each day until June 30th for Max's Meals. You only get to vote for an idea once each day so, I need you to try to remember to go in each day this month at some point and vote for us.

Our community has already been so supportive of Max's Meals. With your continued support and votes, I know we can do wonders to comfort the families enduring difficult times at Children's. Thanks so much for your help. I'll keep you posted on how we're doing!

More soon...I have LOTS of fun things to blog about!!

Peace and love,
Kristi (and Matt, Max, Alex, Ellee and Spud)
