Lady GaGa Facebook Charity Competition: Nice Prize

Lots of different celebrities and sports stars are taking to social networking as it has become a great form of advertisement and also allows them to feel closer to their fans. Wayne Rooney is one name that springs to mind, he joined Twitter recently and pulled in a horde of fans instantly but there’s one woman that stands out as the master of social media and social networking… Lady GaGa.

She is one of the most popular people on Twitter and now Lady GaGa has a Facebook charity competition with a nice prize at the end of it. We learned of the competition through’s Julie D. Andrews where her article talks about the contest and how you can win tickets to her sold-out May 9th performance.

What an inventive way to gain Facebook likes and traffic wouldn’t you say? The charity contest is supported by Lady GaGa, Buddy Media, Causes, the Robin Hood Foundation, Network for Good and Partnership for Purpose.

The charities that are involved help to support youths that are disconnected in New York, these are people that aren’t studying and are un-employed between the ages of 16 and 24. All of the charities are named and they are SCO Family of Services, The Door, Safe Horizon, Hetrick-Martin Institute and Lawyers for Children. The idea is that you vote for which charity you want to win and then you become eligible to win the tickets, the winning charity will have $1 million donated by Lady GaGa which she will announce during her performance and the others will get smaller amounts too.

Use this link to head over to her Facebook page and put your vote in.

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
