Coke giveaway – 50 dollars and great polar bear stuff!

Last Saturday we got a chance to see the Coca Cola Caravan at our area Wal-Mart – I have to say it’s pretty amazing – the lights were gorgous and the kids got to see Santa and get autographs from the Broncos Cheerleaders! Great event – check it out and see if there’s one in your area?

Do you love the Coca Cola polar bears? Do you love Polar bears? Well then this is for you!  Coca-Cola does a lot to support the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), but they need your help.

“We want to help the polar bear — a beloved Coca-Cola icon since 1922 — by helping conserve its Arctic habitat,” said Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company. “That’s why we’re using one of our greatest assets — our flagship brand,Coca-Cola– to raise awareness for this important cause. And by partnering with World Wildlife Fund, we can truly make a positive difference for these majestic animals.”

Coca-Cola is making an initial donation of $2 million to WWF and inviting others to join the effort. Anyone who wants to help the polar bears can text the package code to 357357 to donate $1 to WWF. They also can donate online at ArcticHome.com, starting November 1.Coca-Cola will match all donations made with a package code by March 15, 2012, up to a total of $1 million.

    We don’t have any local zoo’s where I live, I wish we did. But I do visit every summer a place we have here called Cat Tails, where they have wild cats. I support charities during the year by donating food to our local food bank and by giving money to the Salvation Army during the holiday

  16. Polar bears are so awesome, and I’m glad Coke is helping them out! One year we sponsored a Penguin, they sent us photo’s of our lovely – he was so cute! We were happy we were able to support the WWF. Locally we donate all old towels and blankets to the animal shelter. We also volunteer our time by simply playing and loving the animals. This helps keeps their spirits up & that makes them more appealing to new homes.

  17. We always donate to Goodwill, and give monetary donations to Salvation Army, the volunteer fire department, United Way, and many other charities. I’m excited that my daughter is getting old enough that we can teach her the importance of giving back to the community. Thank you for the giveaway!
