Although the prizes are fun—and valuable—Reward Volunteers is really about recognizing everyday heroes and celebrating acts of kindness.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 04, 2013
While helping others is always gratifying, CommonKindness (http://www.CommonKindness.com) has taken the rewards of altruism to a whole new level. The free coupon website that saves shoppers money while helping fund their favorite nonprofits is encouraging everyone to join Reward Volunteers by downloading the app for the chance to win valuable prizes.
Reward Volunteers is a program that utilizes an iPhone app and website that enable participants to track their donated hours, share photos, and post details about their activities on Facebook. The more hours volunteers log and the more activities and photos they share, the greater their chances to win prizes and money for their favorite charities. The current contest—the third in the series—ends July 14, 2013.
Prizes (to be awarded monthly and at the end of the contest) include:
- Monthly $500 cash prizes plus a $1,000 grand prize for individual volunteers
- Monthly $1,000 cash awards plus a $1,500 grand award for nonprofit organizations
- Vermont's Liberty Hill Farm vacation
- Couture Farm vacation
- Smugglers Notch Ski Resort vacation

“Just like our coupons and other programs, Reward Volunteers offers another way you can benefit from the work you do for your favorite charity,” said Sarah Schloemer, president of CommonKindness.com. “Although the prizes are fun—and valuable—Reward Volunteers is really about recognizing everyday heroes and celebrating acts of kindness. It’s a beautiful model.”
