Help NeighborGoods Win the Pepsi Refresh Project and Help Strengthen Your Community



NeighborGoods, The Fastest Growing Peer-to-Peer Lending & Renting Website In The U.S., Reaches Out To Its Community To Help The Company Win A $50k Grant from Pepsi

Los Angeles, Calif., August 2, 2010 -- Los Angeles based startup, announced today that it is reaching out to the community for votes in the Pepsi Refresh Project. The Pepsi Refresh Project is awarding millions of dollars in grants to world-changing ideas submitted by individuals and communities. The projects with the most votes are awarded grants at the end of each month-long voting period. NeighborGoods is aiming to win a grant for fifty thousand dollars.

The company's world-changing idea is simple: Save money and resources by borrowing and renting items your neighbors already own in a safe local online community. The Pepsi Refresh competition comes on the heels of NeighborGoods' very successful national launch. In less than one month, NeighborGoods has acquired thousands of users across the country who have added over $2 million worth of inventory for sharing. In response to the recent economic crisis, Americans are increasingly looking for more ways to save money. NeighborGoods helps members save money and live more sustainably while strengthening local communities through sharing of physical goods.

"Our success in recent weeks proves that Americans are looking for ways to connect with their local neighborhoods," said NeighborGoods founder, Micki Krimmel. "We're a completely community-driven service and we're counting on our community to help us win the Pepsi Refresh contest. With just one vote each day, our members and supporters can help us win the money we need to keep working toward our mission."

NeighborGoods is requesting that people vote for the company by visiting and clicking the button "vote for this idea." Visitors may vote for NeighborGoods once each day through the end of the August.
