Get your #BootsOn in support of Alberta Flood Aid!
As an Alberta-based company, headquartered in Calgary, WestJet is proud to sponsor the Alberta Flood Aid benefit concert in support of The Calgary Foundation’s Flood Rebuilding Fund. Taking place on Thursday, August 15 at McMahon Stadium in Calgary and featuring performances by artists such as Loverboy, Nickelback, Jann Arden, Randy Bachman and The Sheepdogs, this is an event not to be missed.
To help raise awareness (and hopefully donations!) we are also hosting the WestJet Alberta Flood Aid Twitter Contest during the event. This is your chance to win free flights from WestJet and a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet, courtesy of our friends at TELUS.
How to enter the contest:
From your Twitter account, send a Tweet using the “#BootsOn” hashtag on August 15 between 2:00 p.m. and 11:59 p.m. MT.
In that same Tweet, tell us what you’re thinking while you’re watching or attending the concert. Make sure your Tweet contains a comment about the Boots On! pre-show, the concert or one of your favourite artists performing, or a photo or video from the event.
On Friday morning, we’ll randomly select one lucky Grand Prize winner from all eligible entries. While you can (and we encourage you to) send multiple Tweets with the #BootsOn hashtag, only one Tweet, per person, will be counted as a contest entry.
Contest is open to all legal residents of Canada who have reached the age of majority in their province/territory of residence at the time of entry, except employees, representatives or agents (and those with whom such persons are domiciled, whether related or not) of WestJet and TELUS.
The Grand Prize consists of one round-trip WestJet flight for two people… but there’s a twist.
Where the winner gets to fly depends on how many donations The Calgary Foundation receives on August 15, 2013, using their text-to-donate campaign. (note: you can text ABFLOOD to 20222 to donate $10 to The Calgary Foundation)
Level 1: If The Calgary Foundation receives up to $9,999 in donations during the contest, the Grand Prize will be one round trip for two people, anywhere WestJet flies within Canada.
Level 2: If The Calgary Foundations receives $10,000 up to $24,999 in donations during the contest, we’ll sweeten the deal and our Grand Prize winner will receive one round-trip flight for two people, anywhere WestJet flies within Canada or the U.S.
Level 3: If The Calgary Foundations receives $25,000 or more in donations during the contest period, we’ll give our Grand Prize winner one round-trip flight for two people, anywhere WestJet flies.
But that’s not all – our Grand Prize winner will also take home a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet, courtesy of TELUS.
Please encourage your friends and family to donate $10 to The Calgary Foundation’s Flood Rebuilding Fund today by texting ABFLOOD to 20222, and don’t forget to tweet using the #BootsOn hashtag to qualify for the contest. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed tonight to watch for live updates on how many donations have been submitted.
