Buy tickets in support of Churubusco Child Care Pepsi Grant

Who are we? Churubusco Child Care Center, a not for profit organization, has had their grant request accepted to be voted on for the month of October. We have been serving the community for 19 years in the same building! We serve over 80 families and 150 kids! We need your help!

What is this about? This year, Pepsi decided to opt out of Super Bowl commercials and give away that money to non profit organizations that receive the most votes per month via the Internet. They are accepting 1000 ideas a month and are awarding 1.3 million dollars a month to four different cash categories.  Churubusco Child Care Center tried submitting their idea for three months before they were successful, now here is the hard part; we have to rank in the top 10 by the end of the month by popular vote. We need everyone to vote via the Internet. 

How do you do this? There are many ways to vote; 1) Via Facebook- click on Churubusco Child Care Center’s facebook page and click on the Pepsi link and when you get to Pepsi, click on sign on through facebook, then click on “vote for this idea”. 2) Go to, top right corner type in search box Churubusco Child Care Center, click on “vote for this idea” a box opens where you can login with facebook or sign up with Pepsi with your email address and then vote for the idea. 3) Type in then click on “vote for this idea” and again a box will open up for you to login with facebook or type in your email address… It is that EASY!!! Come on, we need everyone’s help! 

When can I do this? Anytime throughout the day but you need to do it DAILY throughout the month of October!

Why do we need to do this? We are in need of a roof, two furnaces and resurfacing of the parking lot, and we also could use a new dishwasher! We want to get this grant so that we will not have to ask the community to fund all this when it becomes a necessity instead of a preventative measure. So please take a moment and vote DAILY! This is a long shot, but if you vote DAILY and ask your friends to vote DAILY and have them ask their friends to vote, then maybe….just maybe! Thanks!
