We Need Your Help


Team Sanfilippo, a group of parents who are committed to finding a cure for this horrible disease, is in the running for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi.  For the entire month of January, people can vote for their favorite projects.  The top finishers win the money.  We want to use the money to fund a researcher at OSU, who is working on finding a treatment using Gene Therapy.

We need VOTES.

You can vote 3 ways - text, email and via facebook - each day.

I know it is a lot to ask, but if all of my facebook friends and blog readers vote, it gets us that much closer to a cure.  Do it in honor of Waverly & Oliver.  Ask your friends and family to participate.  Share the links on facebook or your blog.

Here are the details for voting:

1.      TEXT to contact “73774” (it stands for Pepsi) the message “105582  
2.      ONLINE  Vote at  http://www.refresheverything.com/curesanfilippo with every valid email account you have (work, personal, yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc.)  After you vote, click the Facebook icon on lower right to share our voting link with everyone on your FB.  Remember, the sound of the Pepsi can opening verifies you are now logged in. To cast your vote, you must click the ‘vote for this idea’ button again.
3.      ONLINE VIA FACEBOOK  You can upload a Pepsi application that lets you and your friends vote from your FB page.  http://apps.facebook.com/pepsirefresh/idea  Or, click on a
       
http://www.refresheverything.com/curesanfilippo    voting link shared to your facebook. Or, click on LOGIN WITH FACEBOOK button on the top left of Pepsi login window.

Yes, I'm on it! Charity told me about this. I have been voting for 10 ideas every day in Pepsi Refresh, all ideas for sick/disabled children. Last month 5 of my 10 ideas won so $830,000 to various foundations. Our foundation won $250,000 and it is tough, but doable if everybody works hard. Wishing you the best.
