Pepsi Refresh SXSW Project
Today starts the voting for the Pepsi Refresh SXSW Project. Pepsi decided to not do Superbowl ads this year, instead they are taking that 20 million dollars and depursing it over the year to charitable causes.
The winner of this event at the SXSW conference will receive $50,000 to carry out their idea. It has to be completed within a year and the winner will be responsible to complete their idea.
Melissa from Consumer Queen was sponsored by Pepsi to have entries on her blog to enter this. Melissa is my “campaign manager” for this. Thank goodness! She will be with me on the panel and interviews. We are going to be interviewed live after our panel tomorrow with Deric Ashong’s radio show on the Oprah network.
Starting today at 12:30 cst (1:30 est) you can start voting for my idea on twitter. You can vote every 2 hours. Just use the #RefreshMelissa
Here is my video – but I will have some changes from this video. You can see more of that on my Chat with Sandy blog.
Disclosure: Pepsi is not sponsoring me on this trip. I have not been compensated in any way by Pepsi.
