Can i ask you a favor?

On a side note, I have a favor to ask. As you may have seen me mention, I have a pet project of mine: AFS-USA. This is a great International Exchange student program that hosts and sends students. The impact a foreign exchange has on an individuals life is incomparable.

In this economy, however, the cost of an exchange is unattainable for many students. While the money spent on an exchange is almost always replaced with college scholarships, this cost is sometimes the only roadblock to an amazing adventure for a student.

That said, I need your help. No I don’t need money…I need 5 seconds (or so) of your time, everyday through the month of June.

Maybe you have heard commercials about the Pepsi Refresh project on the radio or tv. But through this contest, the top two winners get $250,000 to carry out their project. AFS has such a project pending and we really could use your votes.

The Pepsi Refresh Contest gives AFS-USA a chance to win $250,000 to put towards scholarships for students living in underserved communities. It literally takes seconds to vote, and you can vote every day until June 30th. At present, AFS is in 40th place and moving up, but we need your help! Click the link below for more info and to vote:


***Helpful Tip: After you click on this link, insert your email address in the red box on the page and AFS will send you a little email reminder everyday until June 30th to vote. This helps remember, I promise.


(I stole the wording from a fellow Returnee Initiative member, I’m sure he won’t mind if you help us out)
