For 6 months now I've been working on a project with the Region IV Head Start Association's Executive Director, Myra Ingram. Talk about inspiring! I've visited Head Start classrooms, talked with parents and teachers and children and today we have a chance to make a bigger dream real.
My company, TLA, Inc., and Region IV Head Start Association are teaming up now for the Pepsi Refresh Project,
Parents everywhere can relate to the idea that moms and dads want the very best for their child. And in Head Starts across the SE, we have a chance to build upon what is already happening with family engagement to bring a new level of partnership between home and school.Learn more by visiting the Pepsi Refresh Pages for this project, watching the video and then voting. Take a few minutes to then help us spread the word as broadly as possible (I'm telling EVERYONE on the earth that I know!)
There are several ways you can participate and make this dream possible:
1) Visit The BIG 3 LITERACY PROJECT
to vote personally for the project (a quick registration is all you need). Then bookmark the site and put a reminder on your phone or calendar to vote daily (30 votes are possible for this one project per person - one a day.
2) Share this blog or the link through social networking sites like Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and others. Your connections plus ours make for great numbers. Encourage as many of your friends as possible to vote daily as well. When you see someone else Tweeting this voting, retweet them too!
3) Offer voting by texting (all regular texting fees apply): Text* 102675 to Pepsi (73774).
Again, daily votes prompted by a calendar reminder are great. If you'd like an email remainder, request same by emailing TLA.
4) Reach your best friends, collagues and the nonprofit agencies (including Head Starts) throughout the SE states of AL, FL, GA, KY, MS, NC, SC, TN - they'll be learning about this opportunity to impacts them directly soon if they haven't already gotten the word. Let's get everyone on the bandwagon to vote daily.
Together we can do this but we need EVERY vote! Thank you all! Stay tuned for updates. As of this afternoon, we've moved up approximately 40 points in the running but we are still far from our goal of being #1 or #2. I know we can do it with the help from each of you!
Support Region IV!
