As you know Christmas is all about bringing joy to others, celebrations and making others happy and smile – it is not the receiving of gifts which makes this season special but the bringing people together and sharing the love.
Coca-Cola is partnering with FareShare this Christmas, the UK-wide charity that tackles food waste and hunger, to ‘Donate a Meal to Someone in Need’
To take part and to help ‘Donate a Meal to someone in Need’ you need to buy a promotional 500ml or 1.25l bottle of Coca-Cola (any variant) which features the FareShare logo. You then need to take a photo and upload it to www.cocacola.co.uk/donate.
Coca-Cola will then donate 25p for every photo uploaded.
This amount will help FareShare to provide a frontline charity, such as a homeless shelter or older people’s lunch club with enough food to serve someone in need.
While you may think that 25p may not make all that difference BUT imagine that 1,000 people upload a photo that is £250 now think of the amount of Coca-Cola drinkers out there; 100,000 = £25000, 250,000 = £62,500 – one person may not make a difference but united together it will make a HUGE difference.
Coca-Cola has launched a new Christmas advert this year entitled ‘A Coke for Christmas’ Coca-Cola is championing the people behind the scenes that help make Christmas special
This is why this festive season I have teamed up with Coca-Cola to help to uncover the unsung heroes out there. Do you have a friend, family member or even a neighbour who you would like to nominate to receive a really special gift this Christmas.
Is there someone who always puts others first, someone who has had a really tough year and you would like to cheer up this Christmas, a shopkeeper who goes above and beyond for everyone, or perhaps a neighbour who takes in your parcels, puts out your rubbish and looks after the house if you are away?
Of course you could always nominate yourself if you think you deserve a prize.
The prize can be whatever you like and think the nominated person would like:
- A spa day
- A Christmas hamper with everything from the Turkey to the mince pies
- Swimming for the kids
- A bike
- A new wheelchair
- A cleaner for a month
- The choice is yours and the prize can be anything up to the value of £250
How to nominate
To nominate your chosen recipient please leave a blog post telling me who you would like to nominate, the prize you think they would like and why they deserve to win. Please leave me a way to contact you should you win…a twitter handle or email address are fine
I will then be working alongside Coca-Cola to choose a winner of this prize, which will also be accompanied by a Coca-Cola gift comprising Fare Share branded Coca-Cola Zero Sugar product (2 x 500ml bottles), a set of two Coca-Cola Riedel glasses, a mini Coca-Cola Christmas truck and a personalised note.
Please note – I will be reading all entries carefully but please do not write a sob story on why someone should win – there are so many deserving people out there that I want it to be a fair and not about who can write the saddest tale.
I will not enter into any correspondence throughout the entry process so please do not email or message me other than to leave your comment on this post (sadly this does happen often).
It would be great if the winning nominator could capture and share photography of themselves gifting their nominee with Coca-Cola’s gift so that we can see the surprise on their faces! This photography will then be posted on my social media channels so we can all share in the moment with you.
I will also be sharing these pictures so you can all see the happy surprise being unveiled.
This competition is open from 9th December and closes at midnight on 14th December and a winner will be contacted by myself on the 15th December. Prizes will given to the winners the week commencing 19th December.
Good Luck and I look forward to reading your nominations. UK entrants only
The winner of this wonderful prize is Angela who nominated her 14 year old son. You can find her nomination in the comments below.
