State Farm has teamed up with MLB to give people a chance to attend the 2010 World Series, while at the same time making a difference for their favorite charity by “going to bat” for them. All you have to do is visit www.statefarm.com/gotobat, play the online Home Run Derby game for the charity you’d like to “go to bat” for and once a week, for ten weeks, State Farm will select a winner and their charity. The winner’s charity will receive a weekly donation ($100 for every home run hit that week in MLB) and the winner themselves will receive a trip for two to the 2010 World Series! How awesome is that?
But whether you like baseball or not, BudgetsAreSexy is also giving away something cool – Two lucky bastards reading this will win their very own $50 gift card toward Sports Authority! And unfortunately I can’t enter myself ;) I need new soccer (and football) cleats and I really don’t feel like shelling out the money for it, haha… So the power is all yours my friends.
For a chance to win your $50, complete 1 of the following:
- Tell us what your favorite charity is! If you don’t have one, copy one or make one up and tell us how awesome it would be :)
- Or tweet, “State Farm Go To Bat. Support the charity of your choice and you could win Trip for 2 to World Series! http://bit.ly/bqjPty (Sweet!)” and then let me know you tweeted it down below (if you don’t, I might not catch it!)
That’s it! Do it by this Saturday, July 24th @ midnight, and I’ll pick the 2 winners shortly there after via Random.org. GOOD LUCK guys! Hope you sporty ones like this.
Don’t forget to hit that home run! www.statefarm.com/gotobat
