Recently, A.A.C. applied for a Pepsi Refresh Grant through Pepsi, Co.’s Pepsi Refresh Project. That was a lot of Pepsi… The 31 day journey was filled with excitement as we met new people and garnered support for our project. During our campaign we learned about a lot of stipulations regarding passing out literature in public places and dealt with a few intimidating authority figures, but best of all we established new connections with our community.

Throughout the campaign, we had fun crafting videos (like these) and met lots of folks pursuing their daily goals. The most profound portion of our journey involved sharing info about the programs we’ll be implementing in Milledgeville in the coming year. And just to let you know, we’ll still be JUMPSTARTING our programs despite the voting results.

In closing, we’d like to thank you for support, time, and text messages during the campaign. You made everything worth it. Thanks! And be on the lookout for our upcoming projects in 2011.

Yours Always,
