Trust us, this is gonna be good.
Okay people: the other day we were sitting here at the press discussing some of the cool stuff that we’ve discovered about people while choosing the Sorority Spotlights each week. And then we thought, “wait a second, what if instead of us being the only ones to pick who is in the spotlight every week, people could tell us about people they think deserve to be in the spotlight.” So basically we just want you to tell us about some people that are… well… nice. Being nice is a dying art, and it shouldn’t be.
So, let’s say you know someone who always buys coffee for the person behind them in line at Starbucks, or you know a pledge brother or sister who always volunteers to go that extra mile, or maybe one of your coworkers always takes the trash out when it gets full. These are just little gestures that go a long way. But hey, maybe you know someone who does the bigger gestures, like sending money to a charity in Africa every month to provide school children with school supplies, or fostering shelter animals until they’re adopted so they don’t get euthanized.
Either way, little or small gestures, these people are still what we like to call Houndstooth Heroes. So, if you know anyone that fits this description, send us an e-mail telling us about them! It can be 2 sentences or 200 sentences, whatever floats your boat, as long as you tell us why you think they are cool people. Then, once we’ve received all the e-mails, we will pick a winner to be crowned our first ever Houndstooth Hero! This person will be able to pick any organization they please for us to give 50 free t-shirts of their own design towards their next philanthropy event!
Oh yeah, if you nominate the winning hero, then you also get a $50 Houndstooth gift card to spend on some t-shirts all for yourself! So c’mon people! Think of what a great early Christmas present it would be to nominate someone to be the very first Houndstooth Hero (and I know there’s gotta be a few of you out there looking for brownie points from someone before the holidays).
Before you get started, let’s go over the rules:
1. Send your e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org -- this is our philanthropy intern! She will e-mail you back letting you know that she got your nomination just so you know you sent it to the right place.
2. It doesn’t matter how long or short your e-mail is as long as it includes three things:
- The name of your nominee! (of course)
- Why you think they should be a Houndstooth Hero! (this is the good stuff)
- Your name and phone number! Just in case you win that gift card.
3. The deadline to send in an e-mail nomination is Tuesday, December 6th!
We will announce the winner on Friday, December 9th!
And that's a wrap! That's everything you need to see one of your friends become the first Houndstooth Hero. So get to it, folks! We're excited about this.
