As parents we worry about our kids, our homes, and our belongings. We want the kids to be safe at all times. We want our homes protected from burglary, fire, and disasters. And we want to protect ourselves from sickness so that we will be around for our children. When thinking about protecting our physical belongings one name that comes to mind is Master Lock. As you know Master Lock is the world’s largest manufacturer of padlocks and other security products. In the past I have partnered with Master Lock to share tips on keeping your valuables safe and tips on getting prepared for tax time. This time I want to tell you about how Master Lock is helping the American Red Cross.

The American Red Cross is a household name. The Red Cross is all about helping people. They are on the front lines for disaster relief, donating blood, and supporting military families. The organization is funded by donations. And sometimes donations can be hard to come by. I feel that it is important to support the Red Cross. Over the past few years we have had several natural disasters that have left some families homeless, some businesses destroyed, and towns needing to be rebuilt. While watching the news it is usually the Red Cross that we see on the scene providing relief.

Master Lock is helping by hosting a Protecting All That You Love and Care About Twitter sweepstakes and donation campaign. From now through February 28th, Master Lock wants you to tell them what you most want to protect. Send a tweet using the hashtag #MasterLockProtects and Master Lock will donate $1 to the American Red Cross for every tweet sent. You also get entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to win one of 28 prize packs.

The available prizes are:

Grand Prize Winners: 3

First Prize Winners: 25

I sent a tweet telling what I most want to protect:



Master Lock is also making an initial $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross, and they will donate up to an additional $10,000 based on consumer participation in the sweepstakes. Donations will support the urgent needs of the American Red Cross mission. This will help them be able to better respond to disasters, collecting blood donations which can save a life, teaching life saving skills, or assisting military families during emergencies.

What are you waiting for? Go and send your tweet! Remember to use the #MasterLockProtects hashtag. Read the official sweepstakes rules here.
