Coca-Cola's "Pay it Forward" for 2013 { Giveaway} #spon


Do you know anyone between the ages of 16-21 that is doing amazing things? Maybe they are high achievers in school, doing community service work or trying to start their own business. I know plenty of youth (including my own teenage daughters) doing positive things that I would love to see receive a great reward. I think about the amazing job my oldest daughter did as the chair of a service project she participated in for her school called H.O.P.E. 365. The organization collects food items, coats, money, hygiene items and even donation of blood to give back to the local community.  She spent numerous hours planning, organizing, standing outside in the cold collecting food donations and all of the countless things that went into making it a success.
Here she is with a portion of the food items that were collected. It was over 20,000! 

Right now, Coca-Cola is kicking off 2013 with its second annual Coca-Cola “Pay It Forward” program through My Coke Rewards.  Coca-Cola’s “Pay It Forward” program celebrates and acknowledges the richness of African American heritage and helps parents, relatives, mentors, friends and the community support aspiring young people achieve their dreams by nominating them for unique and exciting apprenticeship experiences. 



Four lucky nominees will be rewarded 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. I think all three of them are the perfect mentors! 

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!

I actually nominated my oldest daughter and it took me about 3 minutes to complete. You must sign in with your My Coke Rewards account to start. If you don't have a My Coke Rewards account, you can sign up for one very easily. Once you are logged in, click the "nominate now" button. The first screen asks for the youth's name and email address. Next, you pick the first and second choice for which apprenticeship you think is best for that youth. Last, you answer 3 questions about why you chose the person you are nominating. Each question allows only 50 characters so it goes quickly. It's that easy! At the end of your submission you will receive a confirmation email. So who do you think you would nominate for this amazing opportunity? 

I am thrilled to be able to offer a fantastic prize pack valued at $120 (provided by Coca-Cola) for one lucky Momfiles reader to win! The prize pack will include: 
  •  $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

This giveaway is open to US Residents only and will end on January 18, 2013. One winner will be chosen at random and will be contacted via email. Momfiles is not responsible for any lost or stolen prizes. Good luck!

  8. I am trying to nominate my nephew (but so far the site won't let me, though I AM registered). He volunteers at our local library to work with the younger kids in their Summer Reading Program. He dresses up as Clifford and other characters, read stories, and does general help. He is also involved in sports and gets all As and Bs in school. I'm so proud of that kid! :)

    (And I'll keep trying to get the nomination to go through.)

  30. I would nominate a best friend of mine named Jessica. She has been a single mom since pregnancy (her sons dad made bad choices) she works her butt off all while raising him full time. She doesn't have babysitters nor does she really want one. She is determined to make her sons life and hers better than what she grew up in, I admire her for that and wish I could be that way. She is absolutely amazing.

  31. Magic Johnson would be the best mentor for Jessica, she is very motivated in business and will do anything she has to just to have an amazing life for herself and her child. He could teach her all about business including how to move up and how you should do things. She could definitely use his help.
