    Hey!
    so I'm involved with an awesome student-run, non-profit organization called Camp Kesem, where we help families coping with cancer.

    Basically, we're located at 22 university campuses across the nation and we host a week-long FREE summer camp for children (6-16) whose parents have/had cancer. It gives the kids a chance to meet other kids in similar situations, build meaningful friendships, and most of all--have fun!

    So throughout the year, we're constantly raising money, recruiting student counselors, reaching out to families/communities, and planning for the camp.

    I'm the President of the Arizona State University Camp Kesem (check out our page at http://www.campkesem.org/asu), and we could really use your help!!
    Our national branch recently registered our organization for the Pepsi Refresh project requesting $250,000 for our organization ($10,000 of that would go to each individual camp....and I know that we could REALLY use that money).

    So how can you help??
    EASY. just go to http://www.clickforkesem.org and either make your own account or sign-in through your facebook. Then VOTE once PER DAY for the month of June.

    That's it. Thanks for taking the time to read this long (and probably really dry) post.

    P.S. i know this whole thing sounds like a tacky advertisement...but i can assure you that its legit and I'm just trying to utilize all my resources here. Plus, after reading a hundreds of other forums, you guys in the RJ community seem like the kind of people who might actually help out?

    Sorry I didn't see your post in June.
    Our project competed in June and ended short, but we have a second chance in July. We've been in the Top Ten, but recently fell to 11, and now 12.
