Vivanista Announces Top Five Video Contest Finalists

Vivanista's Parties for a Purpose video campaign sought innovative fundraising parties. The top 5 videos have been selected and crowdsourced voting will determine the winner who will be awarded a $1,000 donation towards their select charity!

Online PR News – 13-January-2011 – – San Francisco, CA,: Vivanista, the go-to community for philanthropic living and giving, is putting the ‘fun’ in fundraising with its ‘Parties for a Purpose’ challenge. This YouTube video contest invited participants to create 90-second videos demonstrating how to host an easy, social event that generates donations for a selected charity. Regardless of the size or funds raised, participants were encouraged to share ideas highlighting creative events they have attended or would like to attend.

The top five videos were selected according to 1. Relevance, 2. Originality, and 3. Creativity. These amazing party ideas range high production quality with music to a video produced by an seven year old who wanted to “raise money to stop ALL war”. Vivanista would attend all the parties, so we are leaving it up to public voting to select the parties that YOU would ‘Most Likely Attend’. The top three parties with the most ‘Attendees’ will be awarded donations to their selected charitable beneficiary. Charitable prizes will be in the amount of $1,000 for 1st, $500 for 2ndand $250 for 3rd.
