Big Miracle And The Teen Impact Contest! (Win $50 Fandango Gift Card)

CONTESTS, REVIEWS & CONTESTS | | January 10, 2012 at 11:02 pm


Congratulations Rachel!

Universal Pictures have given us some amazing movies so I await with much anticipation the upcoming movie Big Miracle launching February 13th 2012. They have partnered with the Huffington Post to bring to you an amazing contest. Normally you know I don’t blog about contests outside of but this was really worth sharing. The Teen Impact contest aimed at kids aged 14-18 to support the causes that mean most to them.

 How to enter?

Eligible teens should visit and submit a blog post about their cause for a chance to win a charity donation of $1,000,  plus a trip to New York to attend a special screening of the film BIG MIRACLE hosted by Arianna Huffington! Entries must be received by January 15!

About the movie:

Inspired by the true story that captured the hearts of people across the world, the rescue adventure Big Miracle tells the amazing tale of a small town news reporter (John Krasinski) and an animal-loving volunteer (Drew Barrymore) who are joined by rival world superpowers to save a family of majestic gray whales trapped by rapidly forming ice in the Arctic Circle. Local newsman Adam Carlson (Krasinski) can’t wait to escape the northern tip of Alaska for a bigger market. But just when the story of his career breaks, the world comes chasing it, too. With an oil tycoon, heads of state and hungry journalists descending upon the frigid outpost, the one who worries Adam the most is Rachel Kramer (Barrymore). Not only is she an outspoken environmentalist, she’s also his ex-girlfriend.With time running out, Rachel and Adam must rally an unlikely coalition of Inuit natives, oil companies and Russian and American military to set aside their differences and free the whales. As the world’s attention turns to the top of the globe

Personally I love seeing teenagers being spurred to do positive things and companies creating opportunities like these. Speaking of opportunities, how does a $50 Fandango gift card sound?
