Let’s go back to December 2010: Walmart and its “Fighting Hunger Together” contest had taken over the local Internets. Throngs of us were obsessed with winning one million of Walmart’s dollars to feed our hungry through a confusing Facebook contest that counted our “likes.” We tried and tried, but came in second to Salt Lake City and got not a million, but $100,000.
This week, “Fighting Hunger Together” returned for year two. Fresno, once again, is in the running for a million dollars from Walmart and its crazy-clicking contest. Voting runs until April 30 and Fresno is sitting at No. 2 on the leaderboard, but rapidly moving up. It was much further back just a few days ago.
It seems like Walmart tried to clarify some of those confusing rules this time around — you can vote once a day, for instance.
The question here: Are you playing another round of Walmart’s game? I know a few folks whose reaction was “oh no, not again.” Buuuuuut, it is a worthwhile cause in a city where one in four people might go hungry on any given day.
So what do you think? In? Out? Hungry for Walmart’s dough? Had enough?
