nominate somebody you know to receive a $10K cube grenade
[“Sacred Zombie Cow”. A cube grenade I did for organpreneur.com.]
Back in June, we started a competition to give away a free “Cube Grenade”. All you had to do was submit an idea for your own business or non-profit, and from all the entries we’d pick the most interesting one as the winner.
Well, I’m happy to say, the competition is still on. And, I’m utterly delighted by the responses submitted so far.
However, as we went through the submissions, and emails from people still working on their submissions, it became clear that A) There are lots of people who would submit, but don’t know about the offer, and B) People have asked if they could submit on behalf of people, businesses or causes that they loved.
So, we’re extending the contest until August 1st, and until then, If you’ve already been working on your own submission, we will give you till the end of the US July 4th holiday weekend to get it in.
Then after that, you can’t submit an idea for yourself. You have to submit an idea for a friend, business or cause that you love. (*)
Know someone with a great idea, business, start-up or nonprofit? Submit something on their behalf. Tell them that you’re doing this if you want to, or don’t.
To give y’all more time, I’ve pushed back the deadline to August 2nd. Same deal as before: Submit your idea on the gapingvoid Tumblr page, and/or leave a comment below with a link to your blog. We’ll answer emails with questions as quickly as possible.
I look forward to hearing about your friends. Thanks!
[*That’s right, it has to be something that just your friend is involved in. You can’t have a stake in it yourself. No cheating ]
