Pepsi Refresh Update
Thank you to everyone who has been diligently voting every day for the Narcolepsy ImmunoChip Project on Pepsi’s Refresh Everything website! Our community did its best to win a grant at the $250,000 level but the competition has proven too great.

Time to give up? NEVER! It’s just time for a new strategy!

Stanford’s Center for Narcolepsy plans to submit a new grant application for narcolepsy research in the $50,000 category. In order to do so, the current proposal must finish in August with a rank of 103 or below so that it does not roll over to September. Therefore, please do not vote for the Narcolepsy ImmunoChip Project during August. At the end of August we will email our members and mailing list subscribers with full details of the new grant proposal and ask that you resume voting daily and promote the new project through your social networks.

If you’ve been voting all along we suggest you keep on voting daily for other causes you support to reinforce this good habit! And when you do, you can increase interest in and support for narcolepsy research by leaving the following comment, verbatim or in your own words:

“Voting from the Narcolepsy ImmunoChip Project. Please support narcolepsy
research in September when we return with a new $50K proposal.”

If you haven’t been voting, or haven’t asked and reminded friends and family to vote, please know that we need every single vote we can muster to get to the top. Narcolepsy research is severely underfunded, impeding the progress that could and should be occurring. Make the personal commitment today to positively impact the future of narcolepsy by watching for the announcement of the new Pepsi Refresh narcolepsy proposal at the end of August, voting every day in September and recruiting as many friends and family as you possibly can to vote.
