Read more about the contest below. Thanks so much for considering this!
Commune has asked me to take part in their competition. Commune is a movement of artists, designers, musicians and people that take a stand against tobacco corporations and their presence in the scene.
Every month they host an event with a local band, DJ, designer and artist at Commune Wednesdays. By celebrating local and educating people about the things Big Tobacco does or contributes to that they may not otherwise support, they hope to shift the creative scene image from one that smokes to one that focuses more on creativity, music and art. This Wednesday will be Jacques Greene at Signal Kitchen. Next month I will be the featured artist!
For this contest, they chose 3 local vendors from each of the Commune cities (San Diego, San Francisco and Burlington) to compete to win a grand prize of $750. This campaign is called “Feed Need Not Greed” and will help raise awareness about world hunger caused by the tobacco industry.
There are 2 rounds of voting, after the first round 3 finalists (1 from each of the 3 cities) get a featurette video filmed by Commune's video crew and a 1 in 3 chance of winning $750. The potential prizes for the finalist round are: 1st - $750, 2nd - $500, 3rd - $250. Also, during the finalist round Commune will donate $1 per vote up to $1,000 to an organization that helps feed children in a country heavily affected by hunger caused by Big Tobacco.
I'm so psyched to have been chosen as one of 3 vendors to represent Vermont and to help spread the word about Commune and their efforts. To vote go to: http://bit.ly/Commune-Feed-
