Weight Watchers Lose-A-Palooza Sept 14! Don't miss it!

World hunger is at an all time high.

More than a billion people worldwide are hungry.

Hundreds of millions are children.

On September 14th, you can help just by lifting a few fingers.

Lose-A-Palooza is a one-day social media event created to encourage participation in the Lose For Good® campaign to benefit Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger.

As part of the Lose For Good campaign, Weight Watchers will donate $1, up to a maximum of $60,000, to Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger for each approved mention, acknowledgment, or action related to "Lose For Good" made on September 14th through blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and check-in via foursquare.

This is a one day only event to raise awareness and money for the Lose for Good campaign. I urge you to participate in Lose-A-Palooza on September 14th using your favorite social media tool.

Here are some ways you can participate --

If you're a blogger:
* Post include the phrase "Lose For Good" in a post about the Lose For Good campaign, and encourage your readers to get involved by visiting WeightWatchers.com/LoseForGood.
* Comment on a blog post about Lose For Good. Also, ask your friends to show their support by commenting on your post. Don’t forget to include "Lose For Good" in your comment.

On Facebook:
* "Like" Weight Watchers, Share Our Strength and/or Action Against Hunger pages
* Comment or "Like" any of the Weight Watchers "Lose-A-Palooza" updates posted throughout the day Sept. 14th
* Accessorize: add a Lose-A-Palooza twibbon to your profile picture (available 9/14)

On Twitter:
* Follow @WeightWatchers, @sharestrength and/or @acfusa
* Tweet or Retweet using the hashtag #LoseforGood. Let people know how they can join you in the fight against hunger [here is a sample tweet you can copy and use on Sept. 14: Today Only! Lose-A-Palooza -Weight Watchers donates up to $1 for each #LoseForGood social media mention http://bit.ly/LoseAPalooza]
* Accessorize: add a Lose-A-Palooza twibbon to your profile picture (available 9/14)

On Foursquare:
* Check-in to a Weight Watchers meeting room to help contribute to the good.
Note: foursquare check-in is not considered a weekly meeting attendance and you will not receive Program materials, unless you decide to stay and attend a meeting and, if applicable, pay the fees then in effect. Only one check-in per user will be counted.

Easy. Fun. And for a great cause! So don't forget to mark your calendar now to participate in this worthwhile campaign on Tuesday September 14th and together we can feed the hungry.

Hey Deb, it's Lindsay from http://www.meanttobemama.com! I was going to respond to your question (Is the Scentsy giveaway open to US residents -- YES, you bet!) but then I thought I'd come over and follow your blog instead, and leave a comment! :) So that's what I'm doing! :)

This is a great post, btw. I am in the midst of losing weight myself...some days are better than others! Take care!
