Thank you nTelos!
Thank you nTelos!

You probably remember the fantastic contest with nTelos in December. Three local charities received checks from nTelos Wireless as a result of the contest they sponsored on Richmondmom.com. Now they are doing it again!

nTelos Wireless is teaming up with Richmondmom.com to donate a great gift to one of three great local charities. The “nTelos Cares” event runs through April 24, 2013. It’s a chance for Richmondmom readers to help choose a charity to receive a financial donation from nTelos.

nTelos Cares is donating from $1 to $2,500 to a charity, based on the number of tweets and shares for the contest (more details below). It’s easy; all you have to do is spread the word about the nTelos Cares program via Facebook or Twitter.

It is important to remember:

  • Tag ‘nTelos Wireless’ from your posts on Facebook to be counted.
  • Use the hastag: #nTelosCaresRVA to be counted on Twitter.

What are the rules of social etiquette on Facebook?

Just “like” or “share” our Facebook post about the program and tag nTelosWireless  (you can also “like” and “tweet” right from this page with our sharing buttons and tag nTelos as indicated below!). Or if you prefer Twitter, “retweet” our tweet using the hashtag:  #nTelosCaresRVA.  For every like, share, or re-tweet with the proper Facebook tag or Twitter hashtag, nTelos Wireless will donate $1 (up to $2,500 total) to the winning charity!
