My teacher friend Robert and his 36 at-risk, inner-city, middle-school students are in the running for a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh Project grant, which would send them on a life-changing Smithsonian-led field trip to Washington, D.C., and New York City. Some of these kids have never been outside of Los Angeles, so you can imagine how amazing this trip will be for them. It'll be so damn amazing that Hollywood will surely make an inspirational teacher movie out of it!
Robert and the kids are not asking your for money. All you have to do to help is to click the "Vote for this idea" button on their project page. (You may have to click twice—make sure you see the "Thank you for voting" message.) The top ten vote-getters by May 31, 2010, will be fully funded by Pepsi. (You can vote every day until then!)
Out of 1,348 projects, this one already ranks 288th, as of this writing! Let's get them into the top ten!
Simply click to vote for this project! For the children! The children!
What do I have to do to convince you to help out...? Hey, look, hot Korean girls singing "The Greatest Love of All"!!!!! Watch:
