Lose A Palooza

For the third year, Weight Watchers is running a Lose for Good Campaign. From 9/5/10 to 10/23/10, Weight Watchers will donate up to $1 million, based on weight loss by members during the campaign, redemption of “Visit a Meeting for Free”, participation in the Lose-A-Palooza social campaign and activities as part of Action Tuesdays. You can learn more about Lose for Good here. Donations from the Lose for Good campaign will be made 70% to Share Our Strength® up to $700,000 and 30% to Action Against Hunger up to $300,000.

The Lose-A-Palooza event runs one day only – September 14th – and its objective is to drive as much social media awareness as possible for Lose For Good and encourage participation. 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. You can make a difference by participating in Lose-A-Palooza on September 14th. You can participate simply by using your favorite social network to spread the word - For every mention of “Lose For Good” made on September 14th through blogs, Twitter, Facebook, check-in via foursquare, or a “Lose-A-Palooza” Twibbon to your profile picture, Weight Watchers will donate $1 to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger (yep it’s that easy!)
Between now and Tuesday, help raise awareness, by sharing this tweet with your followers:
