AUMI in the running for Pepsi Refresh
AUMI NEEDS YOUR DAILY VOTE STARTING NOVEMBER 1-30, 2011
ON REFRESHEVERYTHING.COM TO WIN $50,000.00
WILL YOU SUPPORT AUMI WITH YOUR VOTE?
A big thank you to everyone who voted for the AUMI on Pepsi Refresh in August. We did remarkably well for the first try, coming in at #68 out of over 200 projects in the $50,000 category. We are now gearing up to try again in November. Our proposal is to use the award to bring the AUMI drum circle to two schools, hospitals, or centers in the U.S. who can demonstrate in their proposal a commitment to sustaining it if we set them up. We would bring everything they needed to get started—equipment, training, assessment.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP MAKE THIS HAPPEN?
Set aside five minutes per day for the month of November to cast your votes when the project is posted. For every email address you have (plus Facebook) you get five votes—one of the five can go to AUMI. In addition to voting for AUMI, you have the opportunity to support four other projects, which will get us more votes and push us toward meeting our goal!!! If you’d like a daily reminder, complete with easy links and suggested comments to post each day, please email Jackie at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put you on the daily reminder list.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU?
For daily votes you will be listed as a supporter on our website. If you are a teacher and your class votes every day, Jackie will give a AUMI demo over Skype to your class. *To receive these perks send Jackie an email (email@example.com) letting her know you are voting every day. Also don't forget to use your 4 extra votes to vote for other projects and let them know you are voting for AUMI by leaving a comment on their profile.
