Awkward holiday photos for charity
Our agency's holiday card is a contest - win $250 for the charity of your choice by providing the best caption for one of our awkward holiday photos.

It’s a collection of our own awkward holiday photos. Think horrific sweaters, faux reindeer antlers, inappropriate glances, uncomfortable poses…you know, pretty much all the uncomfortable stuff in pics that friends and family have been sending you since Black Friday — with one major exception:

You’ll be able to write your own captions for each photo, share them with friends and, if yours are voted most popular, win $250 for the charity of your choice.

It’s our admittedly odd but well-intentioned way of spreading holiday cheer around our little community, and beyond.

In essence, you are a bunch of marketers who want a lot of people all over the net to write funny shit for nothing, forward it to all their friends with your name on the top of it giving you free viral marketing for your business.

Do you like stamp your website address on the buck you put in a Salvation Army kettle too?

Oh, and you get worldwide rights to use the caption?
