Have you heard of the Pepsi Refresh Project? Pepsi is giving away $1,300,000 each month to fund great ideas that will make a positive impact. My friend Melissa, who runs the spectacular website Operation NICE, is in the running to receive $25,000 to make Operation NICE a full-fledged non-profit organization that will spread kindness and educate youth on the importance of being nice. In today's world of school shootings, road rage and random acts of violence, I think we can all agree that a little NICE could make a big difference in our society.
I admired Melissa's work on Operation NICE before we even became friends (actually, her blog is what led us to be friends) and it would be amazing to see it grow into something even bigger! To make that happen, though, she needs your help. You can vote for Operation NICE every day in April by registering at the Pepsi Refresh Project (it's super simple) and going here to vote. Or, simply:
Please don't forget to vote every day! And tell all your friends! :)
