It was recently brought to my attention that Pepsi is holding a competition to donate a bunch of money (in the form of grants) to various causes, the worthiness of which is being voted on by internet users. One of these causes is the First United Church's storage area for the homeless in Vancouver's east side. They need the grant to ensure ongoing funding for the project, and getting it from Pepsi seems like as good a place as any.
I recommend everyone sign up (it's quick, easy and free at http://www.refresheverything.ca/login, click on the "$25000" tab, and vote for First United. They're currently in 2nd (voting ends on the 31st) and the top 2 get the cash, so it's looking good!
I'll provide updates as necessary towards the end of the competition.
UPDATE: with 2 days remaining to vote, the First United Church project is currently in the lead in the $25,000 prize category.
UPDATE 2: a bit late (I've been away from the internet), but First United has "qualified" as the top vote-getter in the $25k category. Later this month Pepsi will announce the winners/grant-getters.
