I work for a very special organization called Yedei Chesed in Monsey, NY which provides numerous services to individuals with developmental disabilities and their families (www.yedeichesed.org).
We have entered a contest via the Pepsi Refresh Project attempting to win money which will enable us to provide psychiatric services to many of the individuals we serve. The voting takes place until the end of September and we need to get as many votes as possible.
Please help us, help the families we serve!!!!
How YOU can help:
2) Post a link on your webpage, Blog, Facebook and twitter pages (or any other social networking account)
3) Forward the messsage to all of your friends, email lists (school, work, shul, community groups)
4) Text the following code 102321 to 73774 (pepsi)
I thank you in advance for all of your help and support.

im pretty sure the link is incorrect, there should be a / after “com”
but i dont want to change it until someone confirms this since it seems no one else has a problem with it, and i know little about these things.September 3, 2010 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #695790

we need to get out the vote. The NYC village halloween party is in 5th place and we are at 150th place. spread the word!
Mr. Editor how about a little front page support…September 3, 2010 8:47 pm at 8:47 pm #695794
Heck, doing that was a lot easier than bringing over a cup of coffee to you in the retirement home every few hours.September 3, 2010 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #695795
you know if you would stop playing so much shuffleboard, you might not need so much coffee.September 5, 2010 1:29 am at 1:29 am #695796
we lost a few spots over Shabbos. Please take time to register tonight and vote everyday online and on your cellphones!
thanks!September 5, 2010 3:35 am at 3:35 am #695797
from e’Shabbos to M’Shabbos we lost 9 spots. Since Shabbos has been out here in the Greater NY Metro area we jumped 15 places!
with some good publicity and a lot of help we can really move forward. Please share the link and text numbers with all your contact lists and hopefully all the Yidden will rally around us and help us to serve our consumers.
We need a lot of support for this early on because we will lose at 6 voting days for Yom Tov.
thanks!September 5, 2010 2:54 pm at 2:54 pm #695798
keep on voting friends – let’s see if we can break under 100 by the end of the day.
YWN Front page support will certainly help!September 5, 2010 4:34 pm at 4:34 pm #695799The Best BubbyParticipant

(Note to mod: Please let this post go through. For some reason, all my posts are deleted despite being completely clean and neutral. I’m posting this for the benefit of Yedei Chesed so please make an exception this time.) [Mod’s note – I don’t see deleted posts from you. Keep posting.]
I just want everyone to know that Yedei Chesed has been extremely helpful to my family over the years. My son z”l was severely disabled for most of his life and the support and technical help we got from Yedei Chesed cannot be put into words. This worthy organization deserves all of our votes so that it can continue to help other families with their special needs children. Keep up the great work, Yedei Chesed!September 5, 2010 10:23 pm at 10:23 pm #695807
Mod–Are you serious? Almost every time I post, it gets deleted. This goes for posts in the CR and comments on news articles. It can be as simple as “Refuah sheleima” or “Boruch Dayan HaEmes”, and it gets deleted. I’m actually surprised that this went through.
I don’t see any such deleted posts in the CR.September 5, 2010 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #695808
Guess they just went poof into cyberspace then.September 6, 2010 4:13 am at 4:13 am #695809

72- Last time i texted it, i got back a text that confirmed that my vote was counted, but when i did it again, I didn’t receive that confirmation, so does that mean my second vote wasn’t counted?September 6, 2010 5:21 pm at 5:21 pm #695812misterhockMember

Keep the support coming. I am sure if we can get this on the front page we will see a big jump in the numbers.September 7, 2010 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #695823September 7, 2010 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #695824
for all those that are texting their vote please remember to vote online also at the following site:
we are at 105. with a good surge we can get to under 100September 7, 2010 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm #695825
Let me understand this your goal is only to get under 100?September 7, 2010 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #695826
WellInformedYid – getting under 100 is my short term goal (next several hours). the ultimate goal is getting in the top 10 by the close of the contest on September 30, 2010 because the top 10 positions will receive the $50,000 grant.
If we can get this to go viral and pick up the support from Yidden from all over – the goal of getting in the top 10 is realistic.
We need everyone’s support in voting for us and for drumming up support for us. We lose 6 days for Yom Tov yet if we get the word out on the blogs Jewish news sites and get some good press with help from HaShem we can win and be able to provide these needed services.September 7, 2010 8:26 pm at 8:26 pm #695827

Kesiva ve Chasima Tova to all Klall Yisrael.September 8, 2010 4:58 am at 4:58 am #695830
Let me start off by saying I dont advocate people using facebook, however there were Tzedakos that won a lot of money from Kohl’s grants. Maybe you can get ahold of all those people that signed up to vote for those charities and have them vote for you?September 8, 2010 6:05 am at 6:05 am #695831hello99Participant
I just voted from EY with no problem, so maybe try again.September 8, 2010 4:01 pm at 4:01 pm #695832
Wishing all a wonderful and sweet year.
From M’Shabbos on we are going to need a BIG Push to get out the vote! We will need fb and twitter support and as much online press as we can get.
Please spread the word!
And, Please remember to Vote M’Shabbos!

Guys, just wanna tell you that Yedei Chesed is the most amazing organization around! I am one of those lucky individuals who has been helped by them numerous times. They not only help the special, needy child, but they take care of the whole family. They make events for the parents and siblings too. Keep up the great work. ThanksSeptember 12, 2010 2:26 am at 2:26 am #695835
Gut voch and gut yahr!
we lost all whole bunch of spots over Yom Tov which we expected. Please get out the vote and help us gain the ground we lost and surge ahead. Thank you you coke and others for the kind words!
