Master Lock Donates $1 to American Red Cross with YOUR Tweet! (plus #giveaway)

Disclaimer: I received a product to help facilitate the review. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Master Lock is kicking off an initiative to keep consumers safe through all life stages and season. What's super-dee-duper awesome about it, is that starting today, January 19th, and going through January 31, 2015, anyone who tweets a response to the question, "When in your life has security been most top of mind?" with the hashtag #MasterLockProtects will generate a $1 donation to the American Red Cross, and they will become eligible for sweepstakes prizes.

That's an easy way to help make a difference. 
Won't you send out your Tweet today?


MASTER LOCK LAUNCHES 2015 CAMPAIGN TO HELP YOU STAY SAFE
THROUGH EVERY LIFE STAGE AND SEASON
Campaign kicks off with Twitter sweepstakes to benefit American Red Cross

MILWAUKEE, Wisc., January 19, 2015 – Master Lock, the world’s largest manufacturer of padlocks, today announced its continued focus on helping consumers stay safe with a yearlong campaign dedicated to safety through every life stage. To kick off the campaign, Master Lock will ask consumers via Twitter to share the time in their life when safety and security has been most top of mind. For every Tweet posted with the hashtag #MasterLockProtects a $1 donation will be made to the American Red Cross up to $10,000. The campaign will continue throughout the year with a series of safety tips and advice for every life stage and season.   

“Each new life stage and season brings new adventures, excitement and memories. It also brings new safety and security considerations. From childhood, to marriage, homeownership, retirement and beyond, Master Lock is there to help protect consumers as their security needs evolve with these memorable life events,” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “Through this campaign, Master Lock will show its dedication to providing a full range of reliable, easy-to-use products as well as resources consumers need to keep themselves, loved ones and valuables safe throughout the year and their lives.”

Sweepstakes and Donation
When in your life has safety and security been most top of mind? Starting today through January 31, participants who tweet their reply to this question using #MasterLockProtects will generate a $1 donation to the American Red Cross and will be entered for the chance to win one of 20 prize bundles. Each winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card and various Master Lock products to help keep consumers safe through different life stages and seasons. 

Master Lock will donate an initial $10,000 to the American Red Cross and will donate up to an additional $10,000 based on consumer participation in the sweepstakes for a total of $20,000 in donations – just one way the company hopes to keep consumers safe and secure through all life stages and seasons. Master Lock’s donation will support the urgent needs of the American Red Cross mission, whether it is responding to a disaster, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching skills to save a life, or assisting military members and their families during emergencies. This marks the second Twitter sweepstakes that Master Lock has hosted to benefit the American Red Cross. In 2014, Master Lock donated $16,000 to the organization.

Yearlong Education
Throughout the year, Master Lock will continue to provide educational information to consumers on remaining safe and secure through various life stages and seasons. These tips will be available on www.masterlock.com, and will address the following topics:

·         Senior Safety
·         Tax Tips for All Life Stages
·         Safe Moving / New Home Safety
·         Marriage / Newlyweds
·         Back to School
·         First Job / New Job
·         Fall Family / Home Safety

Giveaway
In addition to the the awesome Tweet initiative/campaign, Master Lock also wants to give one lucky Mail4Rosey reader a Model 5900D SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe.

The Model 5900D SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe measures
2-1/5in (57mm) H x 9-2/5in (23.9cm) W x 5-1/10in (13.1cm) D

The SafeSpace holds onto your items, safely, in a portable, very durable container that you lock with a number combination that you create. The carrying handles double as cables that wrap your safe securely around a fixed object. Right away I thought of travel. This would be a great item to hold your cash, jewelry, passport, keys, etc. in a hotel room while you're out and about exploring the sites. It would also be most excellent for camping, dorm rooms, the office, etc. 

I've tossed my keys and iPod in there to give you an idea of the size.
Giveaway is for safe only. Contents not included in the giveaway.
The cable you see wraps around a fixed object and connects back to the other side of the safe.

It has a shock absorbing foam interior and an ear bud/charging cable access port. How awesome that my iPod can be charging while still locked up and safe! It is also water-resistant and comes with a limited lifetime guarantee. 

This is just one of many innovative items Master Lock has come up with to help keep your items safe. 

Check out their website to learn more about this product, as well as all of their other items. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

One winner gets a Model 5900D SafeSpace Portable Personal Safe to call their own! US/Cananda only.

And don't forget it's so easy to have Master Lock donate $1 to the American Red Cross...all you have to do is Tweet!

I learned that they use a lot of recycled materials in their locks -- Master Lock safety padlocks use a high percentage of recycled metal. Steel shackles, brass keys and cylinders, as well as our aluminum lock bodies are all manufactured using recycled material.

Heather De Luna said...

We've got to hold onto a lot of keys for ourselves, family and our family's farm. It would be great to get the Model No. 7101D - 48-Count Locking Key Cabinet so we could be better organized (and safer) with our keys.

My husband cherishes his rather old and inexpensive bicycles so it would make him very happy to protect his babies with a Model No. 42DPF
4ft (1.2m) Long x 15/32in (12mm) Diameter Hardened Steel Chain.

And my sister travels a lot with her expensive electronics so I think she'd appreciate having one of their computer locks, probably the 2120D model.
