Clif Bar is running a great contest called Meet the Moment where applicants can upload a photo and describe their moment in the outdoors. In doing so, Clif Bar pledges to donate money to a non-profit or advocacy group of the applicant’s choice. Pretty cool, right?? I thought so, too!
A few weeks back, I applied and uploaded my favorite photo (below) I took while hiking Horangsan Mountain here in Yeosu, South Korea back in June. From the five options, I chose to have the money raised from My Moment to go to the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA).
So far, Clif Bar has donated $40 to the IMBA because of my submission. Furthermore, I am in the Top 25! This is good news, but the work isn’t over yet. At the end of October, a panel from Clif Bar will review the Top 25 and pick one winner. And that winner will get $10,000 donated to the advocacy group of their choice (in my case that’s IMBA). The winner will also get a one-year-supply of Clif Bars (YUM!) – I am very gracious and thankful for the support I’ve had so far – BUT:
I am asking for your help, it’s really quite simple:
1. Please visit My Moment (click here)
2. On the right side, please use your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Google+ account to “Like” the Moment I have uploaded.
3. Best-case scenario is that you will “Share” this webpage on Facebook, and if you do, that will be $1 donated to the IMBA! My goal is to stay in the Top 25 of dollars-raised, so I need your help!
Here’s a picture of where this is located in case you’re computer-challenged like me (or “Share” the link on your FB wall):
Please feel free to leave a comment on this post, or leave a comment on the webpage for My Moment. I think this is a great promotion for a company to run, and I am honored to be a part of it. Back in my days of competing in triathlons and Ironman races, I used Clif Bars almost exclusively for long training days or during the race while on the bike. I love ’em!
Now-a-days, Elicia and I have found ourselves hiking A TON (hence the reason for starting my blog back in April) and we truly feel like the origin, mission, and vision of Clif Bar and more specifically, this Meet The Moment contest, are ones that we agree with and would like to support.
Lastly, here’s a promo video Clif Bar put together for this contest. I think it’s really inspiring. If you take a couple minutes to watch it, I think you will also find it inspiring. Click this picture to watch the video:
I thank you for taking the time to read this post, and I especially thank you if you “Shared” on Facebook or another social media site. With your effort, Clif Bar has agreed to donate money to non-profits that are working hard to keep the activities we love sustainable and more efficient. As mentioned in my contest photo’s description, we meet moments while hiking mountains here in Korea, and we don’t plan to slow down any time soon!
Cheers from Yeosu,
