Vote Comet Skateboards for $50K Grant from Pepsi

By February 8, 2010

Follow me on:

Comet Skateboards PepsiComet Skateboards is trying for a $50,000 grant from Pepsi in the new Pepsi Refresh Project. Pepsi is looking for "people and non-profits with ideas that will have a positive impact." You submit your idea, and people can vote on it. At the end of the month the top ideas get grants for thousands of dollars.

Comet Skateboards is in the running for the $50,000 grant to improve the Oakland and Ithaca Skateparks, and to run a mentorship and cultural exchange program. You can see a breakdown of how they plan to use the money, and what their program entails on the Pepsi Refresh Everything website. Watch the video about what Comet Skateboards would like to do, and push the white "Vote for This Idea" button on the right side of the screen. Comet moved from 200th place, up to 70th, but as I write this they've slipped back to 82nd. The top 10 ideas win the grant, so vote now, and vote every day! You can vote once a day until the end of February, it costs you nothing to vote, and every vote counts!
