I realize this is off topic, but here's the thing. Pepsi is doing a promotional deal right now. They are offering TWO HUNDRED FIFTY THOUSAND DOLLARS to whichever two foundations/interest groups/community outreach programs can get the most votes. You can vote once a day, every day through the end of February.
Why is this important? There is a foundation, called the Joyful Heart Foundation that is participating. It was founded by Mariska Hargitay in response to the outpouring of letters and support she received from her role as Olivia Benson in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. The foundation helps rape victims, domestic violence victims and children of dometic violence. Did you know that ONE in THREE women will be a victim of abuse? Did you know nearly half of teen girls who have been in a relationship say they have been victims of verbal, physical, or sexual abuse by their boyfriends.That's FIFTY percent!
This foundation raises awareness for these things, and provides therapy for victims. They'd use the money for their magazine, to spread awareness about the violence against women.
So, please, vote. Every day, when you get up in the morning, or while you're checking your e-mail, go vote.
