VeteranOwnedBusiness.com is just one of a handful of nominated $50,000 grant projects that can be voted on at www.refresheverything.com/veteranownedbusiness during the month of April. Facebook members can also vote via a special application. The Pepsi Refresh Project accepts submissions from organizations that will have a positive impact in the community.
VeteranOwnedBusiness.com’s founder, Brian K. St.Ours, stated, “We really need your vote! Since launching on Veterans Day 2008, VeteranOwnedBusiness.com continues to experience phenomenal growth. We have over 4,000 members from every type of business imaginable and from all around our great country. Our goal is to empower veteran owned businesses to grow their respective businesses in the hope that as they grow some will give back to organizations that support veterans, deployed troops and their respective families. We have a long list of development and marketing requirements needed to help us to continue to grow all while making sure our system remains totally free! We are hoping–with your votes–the great folks at Pepsi can help us out with a grant.”
