At Denver Parent, we try to support great causes when we see them and this one was such a wonderful opportunity.
Coca-Cola’s “Pay It Forward” program helps parents, relatives, mentors, friends and the community support aspiring young people and help them to achieve their dreams by nominating them for unique and exciting apprenticeship experiences. The program provides four lucky nominees with the unique and exciting opportunity for an apprenticeship experience with one of the country’s most respected celebrity history makers: business mogul Magic Johnson; chairman and CEO of BET Networks, Debra Lee; or hip hop artist and philanthropist, Common.
Parents, relatives, friends and mentors can nominate aspiring youth between the ages of 16-21, now through March 2nd for a chance to win the apprentice experience.
You can nominate up to five young people (the young person can also nominate himself/herself) and be entered for a chance to win a $5,000 sweepstakes with each nomination!
To inspire you to think of someone you might nominate, we (through the generosity of Coca-Cola) and to promote the general “pay it forward” challenge would like to offer our readers a $120 prize pack!
- $100 Amex card to help you and your family “Pay It Forward” in the New Year
- Coca-Cola “Pay It Forward” journal
- Coca-Cola “Pay-It-Forward” t-shirt, bracelet and shopping bag.
How to “Pay it Forward”:
Because Coca-Cola was gracious enough to give me one of these gift packs, I felt that I wanted to do something special to “pay it forward” with my $100.
I was lucky enough to attend a wonderful, small, private, all-women’s college in Missouri, Cottey College.
With my $100, I reached out to their Women’s Leadership baccalaureate programs and offered my $100 to one of their students. I’m SO excited to donate my money and I’ll be awarding my $100 about a week after I draw for my reader’s “pay it forward” prize pack. I’m also hoping to nominate one or maybe two girls for the Apprentice program as well! 🙂
To Enter the Denver Parent Giveaway (Deadline Monday February 25th at midnight):
Tell me how you’d “Pay it Forward” with your $100! Do you have a special charity or kid’s group in mind?
In a comment below, briefly tell me what you’d do with your money and how you could help pay it forward OR tell me if you have a nominee in mind. The winner will be chosen randomly, but only comments who answer one of these questions will be allowed.
This is a sponsored post by Coca-Cola, in exchange for my time and effort Denver Parent has received compensation. Even though I receive these benefits, I always give an opinion that is 100% mine” – visit my disclosure page for more information.
Essay writing forms a large part of any academic course from your high school all the way through to your PhD. The trouble is that essay writing just gets harder and harder the further you progress through your studies and often the constraints on your time get tougher too. This leads to many problems with students struggling to be able to produce essays that are of the right quality or delivered on time.
