Caribbean discounts

The good people at Paradise By Marriott are giving back to those who give so much. They are giving away 1 grand prize free trip to one of their Caribbean or Mexican properties and 10 finalist prizes of a $250 donation to your favorite charity. I am a big believer in giving back and paying it forward, so I’m really excited that the same people that sent me to St. Kitts for the Marriott Beach Blogger contest are rewarding people who make a difference. Here’s how it works.

Think of a person you know that gives back to their community. They strive to provide food and shelter for the homeless, they spend time in schools or retirement homes or they simply donate to charitable organizations. No matter what they do to improve their community, they never ask for anything in return. Now, in honor of Marriott’s Spirit to Serve program, you can reward their efforts by nominating them for a chance to win a Mexico or Caribbean getaway. You can even nominate yourself!

How it Works:

  • 1. Visit the Return the KindnessSM Contest Tab on Facebook and “like” us to get started. Mobile users, click here.
  • 2. Fill out the entry form, describe how you or someone you know has made a difference in their community in 300 words or less, and attach a photo of the nominee. Be sure to submit your entry by November 16, 2012, 11:59 PM ET.
  • 3. The Paradise by Marriott team will contact your nominee via email to confirm their acceptance of the nomination. Once confirmed, entries can be viewed within the contest application.
  • 4. Start sharing the contest with your friends and family and encourage them to submit their own nominations.
  • 5. At the end of the entry period, the judging panel will select a group of 10 finalists. On November 19, 2012, check our Facebook page to begin voting for the finalist of your choice. You can vote once per day.
  • 6. Spread the word! Tell your friends and family to vote daily until November 30, 2012 at 11:59 PM ET.
  • 7. The winner with the most votes will be revealed on December 5, 2012.

Only a couple days left! Make sure you get your nomination in quickly.

  • Round trip airfare for two
  • A five-night stay at one of nine resorts
