Please Help Pin-Ups for Vets!

Here is a letter that my roommate Gina sent out to all her Pin-Ups for Vets supporters:

Dear Pin-Ups For Vets Supporters,

I need your help. I'm in the running for a $50,000 Pepsi Refresh grant that will allow me to make a Veterans and Military Hospital Tour across the USA to visit our hospitalized Vets bedside, to bring them cheer & appreciation gifts.
You can vote once a day! Visit www.pinupsforvets.com and click on the link near the waving flags at the top of my homepage. OR text 103020 to Pepsi (73774) everyday.

I need your help! Would you be so kind as to send this email to your contact lists, blog about it, talk about it at the water cooler and force your co-workers to vote, tell your local grocery store checker as you're paying for your 2% milk and cage-free eggs, write it on your deposit slips at the bank so the tellers see it, pass out flyers at your VFW and American Legion Post meetings, mount a bullhorn to the top of your car and sing about it as you drive through your local town center, put a bumper sticker on your car, Facebook it, Tweet it, MySpace it, write the link in face paint on your forehead at the next homecoming game, set your phone alarms to go off so you remember to vote everyday!

And...what do you get for all of this work? If Pin-Ups For Vets wins this grant, you will have made Veterans across the USA very happy, and let them know they are appreciated! Currently I'm in 166th place out of 495. Let's move this project up where it belongs--#1 spot.

Thank you so much for helping me!

There you have it guys, now go out and please, please vote for Pin-Ups for Vets!!


  1. Gina has a lot of supporters outside of the US who can't vote for her, but we wish her well and exhort her local fans to VOTE and VOTE and VOTE! all the way through to the end of the month.

  2. I think this is a great idea and I love the Pepsi Refresh project!!! My boyfriend works for Frito-Lay which is owned by Pepsi and its such a great company.

  3. I have voter every day this month! Wishing Gina the best of luck.
