Help out my school.

Fact. This school has Pentium 3's all over the place and dusty CRT monitors.
Windows XP is on its last leg.

Pepsi will donate 250k towards tech upgrades
It's currently 27th.

Go there, press the facebook log in thing, it takes two seconds.
Click the button. If you want to be even more awesome, press the button below to post it on your status with a link to the page- get your buds to actually do something useful on facebook.
You can do it once a day, it would help if you did as frequently as possible.
I'll be gone by the time the school sees this money - But it would be nice to see them get some new stuff despite the massive budget cuts and district waste.

There are lots of schools that could use this money very badly. This one isn't one of them.

Half the kids in my physics class had to photocopy textbooks because they dont have enough. Same goes for my stats book.

So, you drive a 135i to your high school but consider yourself, and your classmates, too poor that you have to photocopy textbooks? I'm not sure about that.

Besides, photocopying textbooks is hardly the benchmark in determining whether a school deserves $250k for computer labs. LOTS of people in colleges don't even buy the textbooks, doesn't mean the students/colleges deserve money from Pepsi.

Why don't you tell us WHY your school needs this money because I agree with the above poster that another school deserves this money more.

Wow my high school had a football/soccer field, 3 computer labs for 2000 students running pentium 2's, no pool, no tennis courts, 1 baseball diamond. Parking only for students who did not miss class more than 3 times per class the previous year....

Your school is definitely not a school that needs this money

the OP has no excuse...the only excuse for him is that his principal is corrupt and spends the money frivolously, in which case he still doesn't need the money, just needs to smack the principal around a bit.

damn, bro. as a fellow 1er I would love to vote for your school but like others have said, it really doesnt look like you guys need it.

shit, i went to a ghetto as high school, graduated 10 years ago, no a single person drove a nice car, think the nicest car was a 1998 neon. But our school computer lab had all new computers. Sounds like who ever runs the budget, did a piss poor job. Specially as cheap as computers are, specially Dells, who give discounts to schools

Try setting up fund raisers, if you really care that much

I've looked at the other leaders in this contest. Help babies with cystic fibrosis breathe easier, helping underprivileged children, fighting breast cancer, helping homeless families, helping special needs children, provide family packages and meals to those deployed overseas, brain tumor survival + several more worthy causes. And your school wants $250,000 to build 4 computer labs because your school board wasted the budget for the last 8 years improving your sports facilities.

Okay, screw breast cancer. Like that cause needs any more publicity or money. They have BC branded EVERYTHING and every sport wears pink and donates a ton every single year. I am sick of hearing about it personally (and I even have an aunt that had it!)
