Even though we are at the office in the middle of a "snowmaggeddon", we just sent half our staff to brave the weather and travel to Chicago! Why, you ask? Well, we are heading to the Windy City for the Pepsi Refresh Project Idea Seminar!
Through its new Pepsi Refresh Project, Pepsi is helping move peoples' ideas for positive impact from wishful thinking to reality. In 2010, the Pepsi Refresh Project is giving away more than $20 million in grant money to fund ideas that will refresh the world and lead to positive change.
Pepsi is looking for young people 17-25 years old to participate in the Pepsi Refresh Idea Seminar, where you will create a plan for making your idea to move the world forward a reality and learn how to apply for (and hopefully win) a Pepsi Refresh grant. Our staff is going to be there to take students through the entire process, from developing an idea and plan of action, to applying, and creating a strategy for getting the most votes.
And last, but certainly not least there will be lectures by Fonsworth Bently and Asher Roth and a performance by Ryan Leslie!
Live in Chicago? Come out to the Harold Washington Library Center THIS SATURDAY and learn how to score Pepsi Refresh Grant Money and say hi to our crew!
Why are we doing this? Cause we care about YOU! We want you to succeed in changing the world and if someone is going to give you a lot of money to do that, we will help you! Check out refresheverything.com  for more info!
Hope they bring us back some fun pics! :)
