Okay, pop culture quiz. Ready? Here ya go.
What’s the first thing you think of when I say “Energizer”?
If a pink bunny with a bass drum didn’t automatically pop in your head, then I’m guessing you’ve spent the last decade or two under a rock. No offense. But really, is it not one of the most recognizable mascots and taglines ever? “They keep going and going and going…”
Last year I told you about the Energizer Keep Going Hall of Fame, and I want to make sure you have a chance to nominate someone an inductee for 2010 as well. Here’s how Energizer describes it:
We’re always hearing about people who are like the Energizer Bunny®. Athletes, moms, teachers – everyday people living life with amazing courage, great humor and an inspiring can-do attitude. The Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame was created so there would be a place where the extraordinary stories of everyday people can live. A place where Energizer could honor those who match the enthusiasm and passion of the Energizer Bunny®.
Energizer will choose 10 finalists from all of the nominees. They will each receive a Flip camcorder to help in their campaign efforts to become the 2010 Energizer Hall of Fame inductee. The winner will be chosen by an online public vote. And the prize? $10,000 cash and $5,000 to the winner’s favorite charity. Yeah, not too shabby.
If you know someone who you believe truly embodies the qualities that Energizer represents, nominate that person online. But make sure you do it now, while you’re thinking of it, because the deadline is April 23.
And because Energizer wants to really emphasize their Hall of Fame search, they’re providing me with a 24-pack of Energizer MAX batteries to give away! Hello?! Who couldn’t use those? We go through batteries like, well, batteries in my house. But I do love the Energizer MAX. The so-called “bargain batteries” that you get at the dollar store or that come in the kids’ new toys? Yeah, they last for an average of 2 hours before sputtering out. Energizer batteries really do last longer!
So, for a chance to win the battery pack, why don’t you leave a comment and tell me if you know someone who keeps going, and going, and going no matter the circumstance, no matter what life throws at them. And let me know if you’re going to nominate that person too! I’d love it if you’d share the Energizer Keep Going Hall of Fame info and my contest too. So for another chance to win, post a Tweet or Facebook message about it with my link, and then leave me another comment letting me know.
My contest will end 6 p.m. on Sunday, April 18! I will choose a winner at random. Make sure I have a way to contact you when you leave a comment!
