Last week I introduced you to the Sam’s Club Charity promotion, Giving Made Simple.  This is where YOU decide which of 8 charity organizations get what part of $4 MILLION DOLLARS.  It’s a really cool campaign and something I’m very proud to be part of.

Well, TODAY, Friday April 16, 2010 is Double Points Day on TWITTER.  By tweeting for your organization of choice, today they will get two votes for the price of one.

Sam’s Club will double the number of member votes during the Giving Made Simple campaign on April 16 and April 30 when the participating charities can encourage their fans and friends to show their support by tweeting. The organization within each of the two charity categories – Youth Education and Entrepreneurship – with the most Twitter votes on those days will double their member vote totals on those days, getting them closer to winning the top $1 million grant.

Program Rules & Terms

One vote will be defined as a Twitter update occurring between 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. CST on April 16 and again between 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m. CST on April 30 that includes an @samsclub reply and incorporates the designated hashtag for one of 8 charities participating in Giving Made Simple. Only one Twitter vote will be counted per Twitter user on April 16 and April 30, including votes from each charity’s official Twitter profiles as well as votes from employees and volunteers of those organizations.  Retweets of a charity’s hashtag will count as a vote per unique user.

Charity Hashtags:
