Help Abused Women, it takes 60 seconds a day, one month! (do it by text!)

A friend of mine is a full time member of RAINN's (the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) Speakers Bureau and also serves as a volunteer doing crisis intervention on their Online Hotline. It would mean the world if you could take just a minute or less of your day each day this month to vote for RAINN in Pepsi's Refresh Everything challenge to expand the Online Hotline to Spanish-speaking visitors.

RAINN needs your vote to win a $250,000 grant from Pepsi in order to expand the Online Hotline and help more victims of sexual violence...may I have 60 seconds of your time? 

How you can help:

First of all, please take a minute to vote for RAINN. The winner is determined by the number of votes, and RAINN needs your vote to win a $250,000 grant from Pepsi. The organization/idea with the most votes by September 30 wins, so please vote for us once a day, every day. And please start voting as soon as you can - the contest is only through September 30th, and if we fall behind, it will be difficult to catch up!

What will the grant be used for?

To expand RAINN's award-winning Online Hotline to serve Spanish-speaking victims of sexual violence.
How to help:

1. First, vote online.
—Visit   You can create a Pepsi account or login with your Facebook account
—After you login, just click on  ‘Vote for this idea’

2. Then, vote again by text message: just text RAINN’s code 102552 to this number: 73774

You can vote once online and once by text each day, every day until September 30.
