Bewildered About Las Vegas and Concern for Unemployment

We are up for a $250,000 grant from Pepsi-Refresh Everything contest. Our project is awesome, "To Reduce Las Vegas Jobless by creating a company to hire unemployed".

The concept makes sense: a startup business can bring $250,000 in revenue to a FAILING Las Vegas economy that leads the nation in unemployment at 15%. We will initially start by creating 15 jobs, and hiring 15 employees off the unemployment line, thereby restoring the employees confidence and sense of pride.

All that is needed is the business and government community to stand behind it, and for the residents of Las Vegas to also support it. It theoretically takes 1 minute per day to vote. Calculations show that if 40,000 residents voted daily, we would bring the $250,000 into Las Vegas' economy. Voting can be done at or after registering at the website, texting 104186 tp Pepsi (73774).

I have met with many government and non-government organizations, pillar community members and they all say it is a great idea. Well, I am still waiting for the support.

Now I need to take matters into my own hands. This is too important an issue to let go of, and I am confident that if Las Vegans and the Nation hears about this project, we will receive the votes.

More to come..........................................
