Embracing a Healthy Family: Weight Watchers' Lose-A-Palooza One Day Event 9/14 to Help Fight Hunger

Weight Watchers' Lose-A-Palooza One Day Event 9/14 to Help Fight Hunger





Who doesn't want to pay it forward especially when it costs you nothing than a little bit of time?  I'm always looking for ways to help others and I especially love this type of campaign that raises awareness, raises money and raises good humanitarian spirit.  Weight Watchers is hosting a Lose-A-Palooza and I bet you are wondering what that is!


 Lose-A-Palooza is a one-day social media event created to encourage participation in the Lose For Good® campaign to benefit Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger.  As part of the Lose For Good campaign, Weight Watchers will donate $1, up to a maximum of $60,000, to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger for each approved mention, acknowledgment or action related to “Lose  For Good” made on September 14th through blogs, Twitter, Facebook and  check-in via foursquare.




Important note: there is a difference between Lose For Good and Lose-A-Palooza. Lose For Good is a 7-week campaign, Lose-A-Palooza, on the other hand, is a one-day event as part of the Lose For Good campaign. The event runs one day only – September 14th – and its objective is to drive as much social media awareness as possible for Lose For Good. Every time Lose For Good is mentioned using an approved method on 9/14, Weight Watchers will track the mention and donate a dollar – up to $60,000.


What do you have to lose?  On September 14th, Tweet, blog, post on Facebook and check in via foursquare to help raise funds to fight against hunger in the US!
