First off, no, that isn’t a typo, we’re actually talking about $10,000! Over the weekend, we were contacted by a marketing representative for a new website called Bublaa that launched a few weeks ago. Part of their launch campaign is a contest for $10,000! The marketing representative felt that our huge userbase could easily help the Insider family win the grand prize.
NOTE: Bublaa is a social-networking site and you are required to be at least 13 years old in order to join the site. If you’re younger than 13 and still want to help, please have an older sibling or your parents sign up and help out! All members of the Insider sites, regardless of age, will be eligible for prizes, however.
We’re currently at a disadvantage, as the contest started 3 weeks ago and ends TOMORROW, July 15th at 10am PDT (1 PM Eastern Time). Thankfully, the current leading group has around 900 members, so with all of our Insider sites combined, with nearly 200,000 members between them, I believe we can overtake them and win the contest! We were briefly in the lead, but were overtaken by quite a bit.
If we win, we will take all $10,000 of the prize and use it for prizes for all of our members. With this kind of huge prize budget, anything goes! Once we receive the winnings, we will ask all of you what prizes you’d like to see and how you want us to award them. You can reach for the sky, and suggest we buy anything under the sky, even non-Bearville-related items, like an Apple iPad 2, iPod Touch, or a Nintendo Wii!
This is only possible with your help, and we need each and every one of you! I’ve gone through the site and have provided full instructions on how to remove any publicly-viewable personal information from your profiles as soon as you join the site. Once you’ve followed those steps, join our “Bubble” and tell all of your friends to help out!
