Think Airdrie is kicking off its new spring campaign and selfie contest Hoppin’ Around Your Hometown on March 31 and wants residents to connect with their local businesses.
The campaign includes three cute plush bunnies hidden each week in different participating businesses. Residents have to first find the bunny on Think Airdrie’s Facebook page, go take a selfie (a photo of yourself) with the bunny and post it to Think Airdrie’s Facebook page to be entered into a weekly draw.
“We think this is a great way to get people into out local shops and services,” said Think Airdrie Co-Chair Miranda Skelton in a press release.
The selfie contest runs from March 31 to April 27, and the bunnies will be in three different locations each week. Three weekly winners will receive a $50 prize and a grand-prize-winner, who will receive a special prize basket, will be drawn at the Airdrie Home and Lifestyle Show running April 26 to 27 at Genesis Place.
“Not only will participants be entered to win one of three weekly prizes donated by the businesses they visit, they’ll also be entered to win a grand prize at the end of April,” Skelton said.
Participants can have more than one entry per week if they post selfies for all three locations hosting a bunny that week. For complete contest rules, visit thinkairdrie.ca/?page_id=31
Think Airdrie is a local non-profit group that aims to get businesses, community organizations and Airdrie residents supporting each other to create a strong and vibrant community, according to the organization’s press release.
