CashNetUSA Launches Holiday Heroes Facebook Campaign


Online short-term lender CashNetUSA, has just announced its ‘Holiday Heroes Contest,’ a Facebook promotion that will award one special hero with a $1,000 gift card for their goodwill.

The ‘Holiday Heroes’ campaign recently launched via CashNetUSA’s Facebook page on November 30th. Customers are invited to nominate someone who has served as a “hero” in their community by submitting an essay about why they believe their nominee is a worthy advocate.

Entries will be judged in equal parts on the impact that nominee has had on his/her community and the clarity of expression and quality of writing as exemplified in the submission. The winning hero will receive a $1,000 gift card, while their nominator will receive a $500 gift card.

Nivene Judeh, Social Media Analyst for CashNetUSA, says that this social media campaign came about because the company was interested in promoting a worthy cause that would not only benefit their customers but also those who have selflessly given back to their community.

To enter for a chance to win, customers must ‘Like’ CashNetUSA on Facebook between November 30th and December 19th and submit their ‘Holiday Hero’ essay to CashNetUSA’s contest page.
