The SEDS chapter at University at Buffalo in New York just started a campaign on Pepsi’s Idea 50K website asking Pepsi for the funding to rebuild their run-down campus astronomical observatory.  They would like the funds to rebuild the current old 12′ by 12′ building with a newer, bigger building that will house their telescopes and allow them to do a lot of public astronomy outreach.  Go to http://pep.si/bXRWIT to vote for their idea (may use Facebook login).
