Voting Partners!

We've mentioned here over the last couple days the need for "people power" when it comes to the Pepsi Refresh Project voting contest this month. It has been incredible to see the scope of goodness and light that has been spread as a result of this opportunity—an opportunity to save children's lives.

As we near the halfway point, we're looking at 26 spots left to climb. I think that's totally do-able ... with a few more voters! So how? Where?

A friend of mine (Thanks, Janet!) suggested that we reach out to the #1 leader in the $50K category who happens to be local to Kansas City, St. Michael the Archangel school in Leawood. She knew they had voting partners and wondered if they might add The Kyrie Foundation.

I did contact them, and in a lovely and strange turn of events, we are now voting partners with St. Michaels and eight other ideas! A HUGE blessing! So what does this mean?

You know those 10 votes you get each day? Well, you can now share them by voting for the partners in our new voting group. Their voters help us. We help them. And since there are multiple winners for each category, it gives us the opportunity to make the world a better place in all sorts of ways for those kids who survive brain cancer. Pretty awesome, huh?

How can we vote? Don't worry. It's still the same 3 ways each day, but to help our group, now you can include this:

1) Text 103447 to Pepsi (73774) for The Kyrie Foundation
and now you can vote for our partners with separate texts:
103090 - St Michael the Archangel School
103073 - Three Ring Ranch
102961 - The Arizona Center for Responsible Fatherhood (ACRF)
102429 - Tucson Nursery School
103048 - Somtech Recycling
103061 - Outer Limits School
102833 - Jobs for Arizona's Graduates (JAG)
100220 - Parks and Rec Nanty Glo
100879 - Erin's Dream

2) Facebook App voting here: http://apps.facebook.com/pepsirefresh.  Then copy and paste this line: 
erins ring.ranch somtech tns acrf leawood outer kyrie kyrie jobs.jag nanty
You'll be able to see all 10 partners' ideas at once with The Kyrie Foundation at the top.

3) Visit this Pepsi Refresh Everything Site to see all 10 partners in the group at once. The Kyrie Foundation will be at the top. It's just like the www.refresheverything.com/kyriefoundation.

There's also a comment section in the lower portion of each idea's page. I like leaving comments so that other ideas know that The Kyrie Foundation was there.

So this is a FANTASTIC development for the cause! When we work together, amazing things can happen! Okay, team, let's vote for these kiddos and the families who need us! Go, Kyrie, Go!!!!!!!!
