Hello All!

My name is Matt and I work for a nonprofit in the city called Junior Achievement. Lately, Delta and Amex have offered us and our Seattle office the chance to split a $50,000 pot. However, it's split based on the amount of instagram photos that we take and the votes that they get on their site. But the photos have to be of local NYC EATS, SIGHTS, and ACTIVITIES.

All you have to do to help out an NYC charity in tag your instagrams with #GoToNYC or even better go into your already posted photos and just put "#GoToNYC in the comments. Seattle has some pretty great photographers on their side, so I hope those of you who have Instagram are willing to help us out here in NYC.

My friends and I have also found that getting photos onto the site is a great way to get followers, and basically get people to view your instagram page.

At any rate, thanks for taking the time to read this. If you want to help out a charity by doing something fun and free, then just tag those photos with #GoToNYC.




VOTE ON THE #GOTO SITE Choose between two photos featuring sights, bites or activities in New York or Seattle. The final voting percentages will help divide a $50K donation between the NYC and SEA Junior Achievement affiliates.

FAQ #GOTO NEW YORK CITY VS. SEATTLE TERMS OF PARTICIPATION #GoTo New York City vs. Seattle (“Program”) is presented by Delta Air Lines, Inc. (“Delta”) and American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc. (“American Express” together with Delta, “Sponsors”).

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Sponsors want to know which city, New York City or Seattle (each, a “City”), is your #GoTo City. In order to find out, they’re dividing a $50,000 donation between these Cities’ chapters of the charitable organization, Junior Achievement (“Donation”). Each City will receive one (1) point for each photo submitted by participants in this Program using the City-specific hashtag and one (1) point for each vote a City photo (with the City-specific hashtag) receives by individuals playing the game (both as described more completely below). The Donation will be divided based on what percentage of the total number of points earned by both Cities each City’s points represent. By way of example, if Seattle receives 10,000 points and New York City receives 15,000 points, Seattle would receive $20,000 and New York City would receive $30,000. By participating, you agree to abide by these Terms of Participation and decisions of Sponsors and their respective designees, which shall be final and binding in all respects relating to this Program, including, without limitation, the final tabulation of votes received by each City and the percentage of the Donation received by each City chapter.
