Summer has this remarkable way of helping me remember what it was like to be a kid (especially now that I have one of my own). There are so many "youthful" things about the season - popsicles and lemonade stands, bubbles and swimming pools, beach buckets and long walks outdoors, tank tops and flip flops, rosy cheeks and amusement parks, bare feet and beaming sun rays.
Apparently, Lipton Tea has been thinking about the youthful side of the season too because they recently launched a "Free Your Y" (your youth) campaign to get the word out about their new line of tea products, Lipton White Tea. As part of their campaign, they're giving away $45,000 (Grand Prize: $25,000, 2nd Prize: $10,000, 3rd Prize: $5,000) through the "Free Your Y" video contest. The contest asks people to share - via video - what they do to feel young and active. You can enter in three categories: Move & Groove, Tricks and Feats, or Free For All. The deadline to submit your video is May 11.
To celebrate Lipton White Tea and the Free Your Y contest, I am pleased to be be giving away another summer "trademark" - a bike. And not just any bike - a Lipton-branded Fuji Crosstown 2.0 bike (retail value $399). The winner of the bike will also receive 5 coupons for a free 1.5 Liter Bottle of Lipton White Iced Tea and a $75 check for professional assembly*.
Want to get in shape and feel like a kid again? Hop on a bike and let the wind blow through your hair.
Want to feel energized and refreshed (and help your immune system and heart at the same time)? Grab a Lipton White Tea To Go on your way out the door (just mix with water and you're on your way) or savor a cup of warm Lipton White Tea with Island Mango and Peach before the kids get out of bed in the morning. You can read all about the health benefits of tea on the Lipton site.
* The Pepsi/Lipton Partnership will provide a check for $75.00 to be used for professional assembly of all Lipton Fuji bicycles awarded. Neither Pepsi Co. nor Unilever is liable for any injuries, damages or accidents that may result from the receipt, assembly or use of this bicycle.
