Pennsylvania-Pittsburgh

A request for votes.

Hey girls, Pepsi Refresh Project is giving out $1.3 million in grant money this month to a number of organizations. One of the organizations is the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, which is very close to my heart. They are in the running for $250K and are currently in 5th place. The top 2 finishers in their category each get $250K. Voting ends on Thursday.

Basically, CFF wants to use the money to fund a study on hypertonic saline in infants. Hypertonic saline is basically concentrated salt water. We know it works in adults to prevent infection, but we need a study for babies too.

If you have a minute, the website is http://www.refresheverything.com/helpbabiesbreathe.

Thanks girls  :)

    LaFemme-Yes, it ends on Thursday. They do the same grant giveaway each month, so if they don't get it this month, I'm really hoping they have an application in to get it next month.

    The faster CFF gets the grant money, the faster they can help little babes.
