Hot on the heels on what has likely been the most successful giveaway we’ve done at Consumerism Commentary, today brings another giveaway. Throughout this month, I’m celebrating Giveaway May; every weekday brings something new to reward readers and visitors. Yesterday, we surpassed 1,000 fans of Consumerism Commentary on Facebook. This is a great milestone!
Today’s giveaway may not be as magnificent as an iPad, but it’s still pretty darn good. The winner will enjoy a $50 gift card from Amazon.com. Entering is simple, as you’ll see below.
While I’ve embarked on this project to give back to the Consumerism Commentary community, today begins round 2 of the Chase Community Giving contest this season. Chase will give $2.5 million total to twenty-five charities selected by the public, with a grand prize of $500,000. In order to participate, charitable organizations needed to survive in the top 100 in round 1 of voting and provide a demonstration of their “big idea:” what the organization would do with $500,000.
During round 2, every participant gets five votes, but only one per charitable organization. Just a few minutes ago, I placed my first vote.
In order to vote, you must be a member of Facebook and a fan of Chase Community Giving.
In order to win today’s giveaway, you are not required to vote for a charitable organization in this contest, but I do encourage it. Today’s requirement is only commenting on this article on Consumerism Commentary answering this question:
What is your “big idea” — what would you do with $500,000?
Your answer could address your family needs, such as moving to a house where your kids might get a better education, a need for society, such as opening a soup kitchen or donating to your favorite charity, or a personal development need, such as getting your business off the ground. Be creative. Think about it. Answer the question here.
Just like all the giveaways on Consumerism Commentary, in order to win, you must also qualify under the guidelines included in the Giveaway May introduction. Your comment must be posted before 11:59 PM Eastern Time on May 19, 2011.
