My Cubs Pledge

MasterCard created a very cool program for Cubs fans, appropriately named, the Cubs Pledge, as part of their Priceless Chicago program.  The program is fun and fairly simple  to enter.  Here’s how it works:

1. Head over to the MasterCard Facebook Fan Page sweepstakes app, The Cubs Pledge: (
2.  Pledge what you’d do to support the beloved Cubbies. Every Pledge is automatically entered to Win Prizes! (My pledge is going to be to volunteer one hour of community service for every Cubs win in May – that could be up to 29 hours!)
3.  Prove it.  Post a pic or video of you fulfilling your Pledge on the  Facebook app. Every Proof is entered to win Priceless Cubs experiences.
4.   Win. You could win tickets to games by simply pledging. Prove your pledge for a chance to win Priceless Cubs experiences.

I feel very grateful to be MasterCard’s on the ground contact for the Cubs Pledge program.  Along with some of my favorite social media friends, we get to be a part of a few of the wining experiences so we can see first hand how cool the program is — as if we didn’t already know!

Check out all the cool people I get to hang out with this week:

Keys to a Good Pledge

Technically, any pledge is a fabulous pledge, but if your eye is on the big prize like taking part in batting practice ON THE FIELD before the game or  a family clinic, then you’ll need to prove your pledge.  So, keep it simple and easy to prove.

Lisa Noel’s pledge is so rock star I thought I would share it with you.


Here’s why it’s so awesome:

  1. It’s cute and cleaver
  2. It’s very Chicago and very Cubs
  3. It’s easy to fulfil. The Cubs win on Wednesday and she’ll be at the ball park on Thursday. BAM!
  4. It’s easy to prove.  I’ll be on hand to take a pic of Lisa downing the Chicago dog. (I’ll be the one eating the hotdog  WITH a liberal helping of ketchup – forgive me, I grew up in the North Shore)

Here are Some of the Priceless Cubs Experiences You Could Win

  • Pair of Cubs 5/17/12 Terrace Tickets including pre-game batting practice & lunch to be determined by Sponsor (ARV=$510)
  • Baseball 101 Clinic for winner & (1) guest & (1) pair of Cubs 6/13/12 Terrace Tickets (ARV=$510)
  • Family Baseball Clinic for winner & (3) guests & (2) pairs of Cubs 7/14/12 Terrace Tickets (ARV=$1,020)

So why are you still reading this post!?  Go and make your Cubs Pledge!


p.s.  Once you make your pledge, come back and let me know what it is.  I’d love to hear.
