Bits and Pieces

chocolatesSeems as though, every week, I get email or read on Twitter about several contests, opportunities, or promotions. This week I thought I'd compile a list of the ones that I thought might be interesting. I hope you'll find something you like!

Contest: 1-800-DENTIST is running a $30,000 smile makeover contest, through which someone can win a smile makeover consisting of and defined as dental work with an approximate retail value ("ARV") of up to $30,000. To enter, shoot a 2 minute video of yourself telling them what you don't like about your smile and what you want to fix. Upload your video anytime by November 10.

Tell your story and win: The Worst-Case Scenario blog is now taking requests for special online-only WCS tips and tricks. What's your Worst-Case Scenario? If you have a situation in mind that you think deserves the Worst-Case treatment, post it as a comment at the WCS blog. If the team ends up using your question for a new post, they'll send you a free book of your choice.

Click to Help: You can help cities at risk to severe weather by donating Duracell hours of power. Go to the Web site, click on the donate button, and Duracell will donate hours of power in the form of batteries, flashlights, and power chargers to first responders in cities particularly vulnerable to weather-related power outages.

Soles4Souls: Soles4Souls facilitates the donations of shoes, which are used to aid the hurting worldwide. Individuals can help in various ways: by donating new or gently worn shoes, by hosting a shoe drive, by donating cash, and so on. If you're interested, read more here.

National Protect Your Identity Week: National Protect Your Identity Week, a program brought to you by NFCC and Council of Better Business Bureaus, is October 17-24. Last year alone, nearly 10 million Americans were victims of identity theft, making this the fastest growing crime in America! Every day we may be putting ourselves and our families at risk by simply writing a check, using a credit card or ATM card. The best protection against such identity theft is education. By visiting, you can take a quiz and assess your risk of ID theft and learn helpful tips to keep you and your family safe.
