No Grant from Pepsi Gatekeeper

This is what we had from Pepsi yesterday;
"Your idea is not eligible for a Pepsi Refresh Project grant because it didn't follow all of the Refresh Everything Official Application Guidelines."

Feel free to read these guidelines they are soo good that they loose the main point. I see them as when bureaucratization chokes a good idea.

We did apply for a  $ 50.000 grant by Pepsi - to use that to fund Floorball sticks to schools in USA - and we must have missed something in their application rules.... so our idea will not be up for a vote. And we may not spread some 100-200 Floorball school-sets across the USA.
Sorry Kids.

So it was decided by someone or something at Pepsi that our idea did not meet their guidelines. And maybe we did not fill everything in right, but our intentions were pretty clear.

Ok, what cola soft drink do you think we will prefer from this point forward?  
This is  not about us being crushed - it is more a pity for many kids and Pepsi (and us too) since we now all missed an opportunity "galore" to associate with something indeed very good for the future.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
