The Contest 2011: We Could Be Heroes
Hello, friends. It's that awesome time again — time to give money to Donors Choose, and maybe win yourself some loot! This year's campaign kicks off April 1 (yes, I know; no, it's not a prank).
If you have no idea what that means, click here for an overview of Tomato Nation/Donors Choose contests past. If you DO have an idea and you just wiggled in your chair in anticipation, I hope you can help me out with a few things.
1. Please send me photos of yourself, your pets, your SOs, your kids, and/or your friends dressed as superheroes. Doesn't matter which one; doesn't have to be a "real" one (a superhero you made up is fine). As long as you own the photo, and understand that by sending it, you've given us permission (but not obligated us) to use it, we want to see it.
2. You can also send me photos of yourself/pets/offspring/etc. looking up into the sky, or out of a window, in a hopeful fashion. Pointing and looking excited is good too. If you're a teacher, or know any teachers, and you can get me a photo of you and/or your class doing this, that's even better.
3. Would you like to donate a prize? That's so nice of you! Gift certificates, crafts 'n' yarn, pet toys, books, video games, shirts, whatever you've got — get creative! Do you work somewhere that might enjoy getting some free press for a product giveaway? Do you have a gift card lying around that you know you'll never use? Do you have some credit-card points you could convert into spa days or a trip to Crate and Barrel? Do you rock the needlepoint? I'd really love to hear from you. Please email me at bunting at tomatonation dot com and we'll work it out.
