#WearTOMS Pinterest Contest

Starting on September 5, we’re launching a fun Pin It To Win It contest called #WearTOMS on Pinterest! We’d love for you to join us! We’re looking to increase Autism awareness through Autism United.

Autism United, while trying to bring awareness to the world about Autism, has created a shop where you can find resources at a discounted rate by using a coupon. These offers are usually special offers provided to Autism United to share with its readers.

One of their featured merchants in the Autism United shop is TOMS. The well known company, founded by Blake MyCoskie, allows them to work together to help each other grow. TOMS is an amazing company and is built on a one for one model that has put over 1 million pairs of shoes on children in need. So whether your looking for a TOMS Shoes sale or just shopping for shoes check for a TOMS Promo Code in their shop!

We’d love for you to also follow our sponsor, Autism United on Google+ for more great information.

To kick off the event, we’ll be holding a fun Amazon Code Treasure hunt. Starting at 9 pm EST on 9/5, we’ll start announcing on Facebook and Twitter which blog has the first clue. (Since Facebook posts don’t always show up in your news feed, you might have to visit the actual blog fan page in order to see the updates).  Make sure you’re following these bloggers on Facebook to find the Treasure Hunt clues.


Pinterest boards will be judged based on uniqueness, creativity, and adherence to the contest guidelines. You can submit as many boards as you’d like. Winners will be selected and notified via email by 9/26. This promotion is open to US residents only and is in no way sponsored by Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.
