LatinaLista — Summer may be winding down but there’s still time for one more getaway with the amigas — and to get started all you need is a Facebook account.
Las Brisas Ixtapa
The Mexican chain of fabulous Brisas hotels and resorts is sponsoring a Facebook-only contest aptly dubbed “Brisas, Chicas and Margaritas.”
To enter the contest is very easy:
1. Have a Facebook account
2. Become a fan of the Brisas Hotels & Resorts Fan Page
3. Click on the “Wall” tab
4. Choose an item that best represents friendship to you. In the comment box that reads “What’s on your mind?” describe why the item represents friendship using 140 characters or less.
5. Next, click on the second icon on the bottom-left titled “Photos,” then click on “Upload a Photo” to attach the picture of the item.
6. Finally, click the “Share” button to upload your contest photo and description
There is one grand prize: “trip package for four (4) girlfriends includes: roundtrip, coach-class air transportation for you and your three (3) girlfriends to Mexico; 3 days and 2 nights’ accommodations at one of Brisas Hotels & Resorts beach properties (Acapulco, Huatulco, Ixtapa or Manzanillo). Brisas will welcome the winners with margarita cocktails by the pool.”
If that wasn’t enough, once the fan page reaches 2,000 fans, the resort chain will donate $2000 to the Fondo Para la Paz, a non-profit registered in both Mexico and the U.S. which has worked for 15 years promoting “community led-development and building social capital to improve living conditions” in rural indigenous villages in Mexico.
The contest started August 17, 2009 and ends Sept. 17, 2009. The winner will be notified around Sept. 30 either thru an email, or what else — their Facebook account!
Who knew social media could be so intoxicating?
