“Home for the Holidays” competition designed to showcase military stories and reunite families this holiday season.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
AlphaStripe, the social media platform for military members, veterans and civilian supporters to connect and document their experiences, has launched its "Home for the Holidays" initiative which will award up to four military members a roundtrip airline ticket to go home for the holidays.
Service men and women, along with their loved ones, are encouraged to visit http://www.AlphaStripe.com and share their best military related stories, along with photos and videos, to have a chance to win one of four round-trip tickets home to reunite with their loved ones for the holidays. AlphaStripe site members will then be invited to share their story via their social networks and collect Salutes (likes). The four stories with the most Salutes will be selected as the winners of the AlphaStripe Home for the Holidays competition.
"We want AlphaStripe to be a place where people connect and share their military-related life experiences," said Jason Brown, AlphaStripe co-Founder and Chief Veterans Affair’s Officer. Brown is a veteran with over eight years of dedicated service in the US Army which included four deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
"Regardless of rank or financial need we think that every person who held up their right hand in protection of this country should have the opportunity to be rewarded by the very people they are protecting. As a Veteran, I understand fully the sacrifice these military members and their families make. The AlphaStripe Home for the Holidays competition is our humble attempt to honor you and yours for your amazing service to our country," said Brown.
Submissions began December 1st and end on December 20th. The winners will be announced December 21st. Anyone with a military story to share is encouraged and welcomed to submit their story on http://www.alphastripe.com. Parties interested in supporting Home for the Holidays with sponsorship dollars is welcome to contact Brown via the AlphaStripe website.
AlphaStripe recently launched its post-beta platform with Facebook integration, extensive connection capability through expanded military databases, and private sharing capability through their Barracks feature. AlphaStripe is dedicated to keeping the veteran community strong, informing service members in transition, and giving back to the military community. Authentic story telling is truly the heart and soul of the AlphaStripe community. Join AlphaStripe as we honor our amazing service members—past, present, and future. Share your story today!
