Here’s a cool way to do a giveaway that you may not know about. Brother’s MacDonald pulled this off and it’s a great idea. Here they are in their own words describing what they did in their high school program.

“On sunday we did one of our best games. We had 100 Starbucks cards underneath our 200 chairs. When the kids walked in we had them look and if they had one stand up. The kids were ecstatic. I then asked them if they wanted the good news or the bad news. They said, ‘bad.’ I told them the truth… ’99 of the cards contained nothing. The good news – one of the cards had 100 dollars on it.’  The kids got so pumped. Then i read the digits on the back and watched the people sit down little by little until there were only 3 left. Then i made them switch cards! They were so mad. Then we sent them, all girls to Starbucks with matt, our intern, cameraman and former Starbucks employee.  Heres the video…”

    Would love to do this with iTunes, Chick-fil-a, or Game Stop…
    I’ll let you know if I do it and post video.

    sweet idea, but starbucks wouldnt work for us, closest one is half hour away, so we’d have to do itunes.

    This is a great idea. Made me curious if Starbucks donated the blank cards or if he had to buy them.
