Win a Trip to Malawi!

I came across this cool contest (best part it doesn’t include voting!) and wanted to share it. Sure you’re giving your email address away, but when you sign up for contests you can use an email address that filters (like [email protected]) If you don’t – this is key for signing up for things. That’s a free tip, you’re welcome.

Ok, so back to the contest. It’s a chance to go on a Malawi adventure, hosted by Thrillist and presented by Members Project® from American Express and TakePart.

One winner and a guest will spend a week traveling to rural villages outside the capital of Lilongwe, assisting Goods for Good in the distribution of 2.5 tons of essential school materials to 53,000 children who’d otherwise go without. After that, you’ll also be able to enjoy 5 days exploring local culture in Africa, as a reward for all your hard work. As far as contests go, the chance to go to Africa with a combined volunteer and exploring trip sounds pretty tempting. Sure it would be like winning the lottery but that sounds pretty awesome, right?

Enter the contest here.

It runs until September 30, 2010 (so like get on it).
