Are you a blogger who’s going to be in New York City between August 1st and 5th? Do you want to see the city from atop a double-decker bus? If you answered yes to both of these questions, pay attention.
Madame Deals approached us recently with an idea that we couldn’t resist. Let’s get bloggers–people who have a strong influence in their online communities–to do some good. If we can pull together a bunch of bloggers doing good deeds, and have their readers start doing good deeds, this world will be a better place. This is all part of the Madame Deals Pay it Forward initiative that encourages people to get out there and do good, and frankly, we’ve been inspired to help out.
So this is what’s happening:
- We’re giving away 50 double-decker bus tours between August 1st and 5th, when the BlogHer 2012 convention is in town. (You do not have to go to BlogHer to win a ticket; you just need to be in NYC during this time.)
- In order to get your hands on one of these tickets, you have to do a good deed. It can be big, it can be small, but what matters is that you affect the world in a positive way.
- Once you do this good deed, tweet about it, post it on Facebook, blog about it, tell everybody! It’s like that Liberty Mutual commercial where one good deed inspires another; share your compassion and others will follow suit. Use the hash tag #PayItForwardExpress and tag @GrayLineNewYork and @madamedeals so we can help spread the word.
- Make sure you submit an official entry on MadameDeals.com. This is where you will also find the official rules and regulations of the contest.
We are so excited to be helping Madame Deals in her effort to make this world a better place, one good deed at a time.
