Clay Aiken - Help Kids With Disabilities  

With a daily vote and a daily text - you can make a difference in a child's life.

Pepsi is giving away $1,300,000 each month to fund great ideas.
This month - one of their ideas is National Inclusion Project.

The goal is to be in the top 10 and to be granted $50,000.

This is a quote from the Pepsi site about National Inclusion Project.

The National Inclusion Project gives children with disabilities the opportunity to experience all life has to offer. Through Let's ALL Play children with disabilities have the same experiences as those without by participating together in recreational activities such as swimming, arts and crafts, community service, physical fitness and more. Children of all abilities participating in Let's ALL Play have seen dramatic development in motor skills as well as improvement in social skills, self-esteem, compassion, and understanding.

The Project will bring Let's ALL Play to community programs nationwide by providing training on best practice inclusion techniques and scholarships so that no child is left on the sidelines. This training will expand the capacity of programs to offer inclusive experiences for generations to come.

A mother said, "At camp, my son does not have Down Syndrome, wear hearing aids, or have difficulty with his speech. He is simply a camper."

How will the 50K be Used?

$36,000 trains staff across the country on best practice inclusion techniques.

$3,400 provides training supplies.$ 10,600 gives scholarships to kids who are unable to afford programs.
