MILWAUKEE BREWERS FINISH FIFTH IN THE HEAD & SHOULDERS AND MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL 2014 “SEASON OF THE #WHIFF” MONTHLY TWITTER COMPETITION FOR AUGUST
Head & Shoulders and Major League Baseball (MLB) announced the winners of the “Season of the #Whiff” Twitter competition for the month of August, 2014. As of September 1, we racked up 33,042 #Whiff @Brewers tweets, securing fifth place for the month of August, resulting in a $5,000 donation to local Brewers RBI leagues. Overall, Head & Shoulders rewards the seven MLB Clubs with the most #Whiff tweets each month with a donation to their local RBI league(s) totaling $40,000.
This brings the 2014 Brewers RBI leagues donation up to $35,000 on the season–no small chunk of change just for tweeting–as we’ve finished in second place once, third place three times, and now fifth place…plus September is still up for grabs!
Thanks to all who tweeted in the first five months of the season-let’s set our sights on finishing strong! All you have to do is tweet #WHIFF + @Brewers. Up to 27 #WHIFF + @Brewers tweets per user per day AND up to 27 #WHIFF retweets from the Club account count toward out monthly total.
Furthermore, for every “Whiff” (strikeout) recorded throughout the Majors during the 2014 Regular Season, Head & Shoulders will make an additional $1 donation to the national RBI program. The RBI program is the MLB youth initiative designed to give young people from urban and underserved communities the opportunity to play baseball and softball, encourage academic success and achievement, and teach important life lessons and values.
In conjunction with the season-long Head & Shoulders #WHIFF program which benefits the RBI Leagues, MLB has declared that today is #WHIFF Wednesday.
If there are 200 strikeouts across the League, 5,000 fans can win prizes including MLB.com Shop discounts, MLB.TV trials and Head and Shoulders products. To participate, fans should tweet #Whiff @Brewers for their chance to win, as well as enter online here.
For those unfamiliar with the program, starting on Opening Day, for every “whiff” (strikeout) across MLB during the 2013 regular season, Head & Shoulders with Old Spice is making a $1 donation to the MLB Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI ) program. The RBI program is the MLB youth initiative designed to give young people from urban and underserved communities the opportunity to play baseball and softball, encourages academic success and achievement, and teaches important life lessons and values.
MLB fans can take part in the “Season of the #Whiff” on Twitter all season long and help their team & community–the MLB Club with the most tweets each month will earn $10,000 for their local RBI Leagues!
