Hey Spark friends!!!
So not only am I back on the exercise wagon, but I am trying to do SO many other things. I started back to two-a-days after not working out for a couple of months. It seems like my boyfriend always wants fast food and always has something for us to do--besides work out. So getting back into the swing of things has been difficult. What I know is this: good things come to those who wait & those who work hard will be rewarded.
With that being said....I have been patiently....OK MAYBE NOT SO PATIENTLY....waiting for my opportunity to fulfill a lifelong dream: making a difference and helping those in my community. I come from a long history(as long of a history you can have only being 25) of volunteering and trying to make a difference in my communities. I finally decided to MAKE MY OWN.
I applied for a PEPSI REFRESH grant to start a program helping the unemployed. I plan to speak in schools and teach the children what seems to be lacking in some curriculum these days. I take for granted that I had parents to teach me how to shake hands and sell myself. In my recruiting days, I've seen the best interviewees and rockstar resumes. I've also seen terrible "resumes" and interviewed some of the most clueless candidates. I want every person who attends my class to be that rockstar candidate who the recruiter remembers for good reasons....and CALLS BACK. I want to turn their outlook on life around and give them hope for a better job.
All of that can start with this grant....
You can support my cause if you wish by going to www.refresheverything.com/best
Unfortunately, you will have to enter your email address to create an account (they want to make sure real people are voting and not machines and people who are cheating). It literally took my coworkers 60 seconds to do everything from beginning to end and they DO NOT send spam or junk mail. It will be a minute WELL SPENT if you would take the time out of your day to do this for me!! For those of you who REALLY believe in me and my idea, you can vote every day.
For those who may not want to go online and vote, you can text the number 108526 to 73774 (spells PEPSI). This DOES NOT cost you ANYTHING (unless your texting costs money) and you will get one text back confirming your vote and NOTHING else after that.
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE for your help achieving my goals--Lord knows I cant do it alone......weight loss or my non-profit. You guys literally make me wish someone would build a sparkpeople world so that I could have you all as real live in-person friends because you are so fabulous in every way!!! I wish you all continued success and the best of luck in your endeavors!!!
