In my last post ( CABF Pepsi Project fundraiser - scandal & pharmaceutical conflict of interest ) I reached out to Pepsi corporation in good faith expressing my concerns about an ongoing marketing campaign "Pepsi Refresh Project" where they promote "Fresh Ideas" from some honest & good charitable organizations; as well as some fairly unscrupulous groups like CABF.
I also mentioned that Pepsi has very poor vetting process regarding those they allow to participate & will award money too. As of this morning CABF (bpkids) & their marketing efforts have them sitting @ #1 position for the 250k award. (by reaching out to other pharma front groups, running their own contest, and providing misleading or false information to drum up votes)
PEPSI has been warned that this public support for CABF would come back to bite them - they have not listened!! Now they are walking into a position of being forever tied to CABF & the negative repercussions the award money will provide for small children, youth, and America.
Pepsi Welcomes us to Corporate American where it's all about results, the bottom line, name recognition & profits; those things we common folk value/cherish like integrity, ethical behavior, moral conscience, and doing the right thing are obviously something Pepsi has very little concern over.
Pepsi's lack of vetting concerning Pharmaceutical Industry front organizations like CABF has shown Pepsi's lack of community & social responsibility. Again below I will post links to even more information shining a spot light on CABF bpkids.
At some juncture the American people are going to get sick & tired of being duped by International Corporations selling them a tainted bill of goods & lash out back @ them. We can only hope this comeuppance comes before more of our children become the strewn carnage of Corporate greed & power focused mentalities.
Though I am admittedly not much of a soft drink consumer, next time I choose to indulge in a soda....I'll go with the 'REAL THING" thank you very much.....
