Wartburg student needs your vote

Samantha Banser, a pre-med student at Wartburg college and her mom have started Brighter Tomorrows AND it is now up for voting for a Pepsi Refresh Grant.

Brighter Tomorrows is a non-profit organization for foster youth aging out of the system. Normally they don't have a family or very many connections to people, so it is very difficult for them to transition successfully to adulthood.

It started as a website with all the possible resources available to foster teens in the area, with webhosting donated by SpinUtech. The website is brightertomorrowsbetterfuture.com.

This month Brighter Tomorrows is up for a Pepsi Refresh Grant!

To vote go to www.refresheverything.com/brightertomorrows during the month of June.
