Our inbox is overflowing with interesting, funny and occasionally dumb ways to show off your Steelers pride this week. Here are a few of the promotions that are fun and for a good cause too. Here are 4 of the Pittsburgh vs. Green Bay challenges that we know about. If you know of others please add a link to the comments below.
Envirobowl 2011 – PennFuture is competing against Clean Wisconsin in Enviro Bowl 2011. The challenge is to see which environmental group can raise the most donations by Noon CST on Super Bowl Sunday. The stakes are high: “The losing organization must change its Facebook page to reflect support of the winning organization’s home team during the Super Bowl, and that organization’s leader must video tape a message to the other’s supporters, while dressed in the other’s team swag.” Click here to donate.
CokeCheers – upload a photo of you with a Coke and Coke will donate $1 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. When Pittsburgh hits 10,000 “cheers” – Coke will donate an extra $25,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America. It is easy – just upload a photo at CokeCheers.com
The Regenerative Medicine Super Bowl Fan Challenge – Pitt vs. U of Wisconsin – well here is a unique and about as niche as it gets for a Super Bowl challenge the Pitt/UMPC McGowan Institute for Regenerative Medicine has challenged the University of Wisconsin Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine Research Center to a Facebook fan battle. Which every research center gets the most new fans by kickoff gets to post a picture of the other Institute’s director decked out in opposing teams colors! So just be a fan of the McGowan Institute here to make sure that Wisconsin doesn’t win this one.
And finally, this challenge really only benefits your waist line and possibly your living room if you can eat enough burritos.
