Thank you for such a valuable post.
It is so helpful when we all come together to provide resources to help make life easier!

In the same spirit of sharing, readers might consider a neat effort I stumbled upon a few days ago.
You may have heard of the new program the Pepsi-Cola Corporation is sponsoring. It's called Refresh Everything. One particular project idea posted on their website is the creation of an online national college fund to help students of all ages pay for college.

The guy who came up with idea is really being creative - he's using the $250,000 in grant money from Pepsi to create a scholarship fund that will provide US students with up to $5,000 each year to help pay for college tuition and expenses - too cool!!! Once he gets the check from Pepsi, his plan is to get other "Fortune 500" companies to donat as well.

Anyway, we need to support this effort. Afterall, we'll have no reason to compain about the high cost of education if we don't support this idea by going to the website everyday this month and voting for it!

Remember, go to:
. then click "vote for this idea."
Do this everyday this month and get as many college-bound students and their parents to do the same!
