Pepsi Refresh Projects in Michigan

10.06.10 | technician | In upper peninsula, homeless, charity

Pepsi is giving away $1,300,000 each month to fund great ideas.

Several Michigan projects have a chance at winning prize money. Never mind where the money is coming from as it’s not coming from Michigan.

The Upper Michigan Brain Tumor Center is currently in 12th place to get $250k. Only the top 2 will get funded. Funding would support ongoing research, generate a list of new therapies to improve quality of life, and empower patients through advocacy, education, treatment and research. This would not only be good for Michigan but for anyone in the country since anybody could potentially get a brain tumor and benefit from any medical research.

Copper Harbor, MI is hoping to use $250k to build an ambulance garage. They are in 11th place.

The Salvation Army Eastern Michigan Division is in 30th place to receive $250k

Southeastern Michigan Veterans Stand Down, Inc. is in 92nd place to receive $25k

Coats for Kids/Grace Lutheran Church of East Tawas, Michigan is in 7th place for $5k.

Sara LeBourdais was already awarded $5k to save animals in Midland, MI
Monroe Center Cancer Connection was awarded $5k for free transportation to cancer patients in Monroe, MI.
Golightly Educational Center was awarded $5k to take inner city students to an educational, 3-day science camp from Detroit.
The Detroit Area Diaper Bank also received $5k.

Voting for this round ends on October 31st. You can find more Michigan-based projects at http://www.refresheverything.com/search/?q=michigan
