The country’s largest anti-agriculture group, the Humane Society of the U.S., appears to be on the verge of getting a $250,000 grant from Pepsi Cola. The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance (USSA) and others are working to inform Pepsi about HSUS’ true, animal rights agenda.
Pepsi will award $250,000 to the top-two vote getters in an online grant program it developed to provide funding to a variety of projects.
The program, called the Pepsi Refresh Program, was started in January 2010. According to the rules, it is: “an online grant program which makes available millions of dollars to be granted to projects which are intended to improve communities through an online, democratic voting process…”
Up to 1,000 ideas can be submitted each month by individuals, companies and non-profit organizations. Several of the ideas will be approved for funding based upon the number of votes received from registered online users. Of those approved; two will receive $250,000 and 10 each will receive grants of $5,000, $25,000, or $50,000.
