DoSomething.org and AARP Foundation's Mentor Up

Description

Create handmade Valentine’s Day cards to show an older adult you care and you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship. Getting older can be pretty lonely. In fact, 17% of all American seniors face isolation due to location, disability, or language barriers. This winter, DoSomething.org and Meals on Wheels are working together, asking young people to make handmade cards to be delivered in person to older adults by local Meals on Wheels. Not only will you be making a older adult feel connected this Valentine’s Day, participants can earn a chance to win a $10,000 scholarship for school for the first card they make and additional chances for every three cards made after that. The more cards you make, the more entries you can earn. No minimum GPA or essays required. What: $10,000 scholarship for one winner. How: 1). Sign up for Love Letters at Dosomething.org/loveletters. 2.) Make a handmade Valentine’s Day card (or lots of cards) to be mailed to Meals on Wheels and snap a picture. 3.) Share the photo with us online or via text, and you’ll be entered to win a $10,000 scholarship. When: The deadline to submit your entry is February 15, 2015. Go to Dosomething.org/loveletters to apply now!
