Better Together

Cake and ice cream. Saturday and Sunday. Sideshow Bob and Krusty the Clown. They’re all better together than on their own.

It’s a lesson several military charities have taken to heart as they work to win the Pepsi Refresh program. This grant competition has been running monthly contests; charities with the highest number of online votes can win $5,000, $25,000, $50,000 or $250,000.

Competition is fierce, but so is loyal support. Rather than dividing and conquering, military aid charities are banding together for Tag Team for the Troops. Each registered visitor gets up to 10 votes a day, so this group is encouraging all of their supporters to vote for other organizations that serve the military community.

It’s a great way to pool resources and keep the focus where it belongs: Proving how small things add up to make a difference for our military families.

So we at Operation Gratitude and our friends at Operation Homefront are casting our votes for these other nonprofits who need and deserve a Pepsi grant.

We hope you will, too.
