LOS ANGELES--(www.TGO.tv, asking visitors to answer this question, “What would you do with a free Flip camera and $250?")--The Golden Opportunity announces today the Golden Opportunity Challenge at
“What would you do with a free Flip camera and $250?”
By offering an opportunity with no strings attached, this social experiment intends to uncover whether individuals will be selfless, selfish or somewhere in-between. Each month, TGO will award visitors to the TGO.tv site, up to 25 ‘Golden Opportunity’ packages containing a Flip camera and a cash card of $250.
Winners are selected three different ways: through a sweepstakes for all registered guests, by submitting the “best ideas” as voted on by the TGO community, and during ongoing challenges sponsored by companies, communities and celebrities.
TGO winners have already posted a wide spectrum of videos, including ‘Scott’ who presented malaria nets to a village in Tanzania, ‘Natalia’ who purchased a guitar for a man on the street and ‘Fernando’ who bought a pair of Toms Shoes.
Social media investor, philanthropist and TGO founder, Victor Kearney, comments, “The success of this experiment rests wholly in the hands of the people who participate. Our premise is that the majority of individuals, given an opportunity, will rise to the occasion and contribute. I really believe that TGO.tv can change the world, one meaningful micro-act at a time. However, individuals will have to step up and participate, or we’ll have a very short-lived experiment!”
The Golden Opportunity Team anticipates that www.TGO.tv will trigger a ripple effect of meaningful micro-acts: small acts that cost little time or money, while creating a worthwhile and positive effect in the world. They believe the TGO experience provides the tools and platform for sharing these individual contributions, creating a unique dialogue and celebrating the power of individual micro-acts -- which in volume can have a macro, world-changing effect.
About The Golden Opportunity
The Golden Opportunity originated with the simple question: Would people, if given the opportunity, rise to the occasion and conduct a meaningful micro-act? The only request, whatever participants choose to do with their opportunity -- they film and share it with the TGO community.
The company will function as a low-profit corporation where TGO revenue is funneled back into the company in order to grow the business and drive the mission of TGO: to activate a ripple effect of meaningful micro-acts where participants film and share the creative ways they’re contributing to the world, triggering hundreds more contributions. TGO strives to inspire people everywhere to participate more in life, contribute to society and recognize that meaningful acts can be simple, easy and powerful.
