"Unlock a Cure" with Master Lock & Combination Padlock #Giveaway 11-12

With more than 141 million casual gamers on Facebook®*, Master Lock is tapping into the power of the popular social network to challenge consumers to game for the greater good. In honor of National Cancer Survivors Day June 5, Master Lock launched a free game on that will generate donations for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® (BCRF) according to the level of fan participation. Master Lock will also challenge players to make a matching donation in the hopes of finding a cure and expanding the number of breast cancer survivors. In addition, the company is introducing new pink locking products to raise awareness for the cause and to help ‘unlock a cure."
Giving through Gaming
Visitors to the Master Lock Facebook page will be challenged to mimic a directional combination on a virtual 1500iD Speed Dial Set-Your-Own Combination Lock. The Speed Dial is the first lock to open on up-down-left-right movements, instead of the traditional rotary dial. Much like the well-known game Simon, in which players must remember a progressive sequence of actions or instructions, players of the Master Lock Facebook game must remember a progressive sequence of directional movements. A leader board will rank the top overall gamers, and players can also choose to see a leader board of just their Facebook friends who are playing the game to spur friendly competition.

You play. We give. Master Lock will donate $0.01 per corresponding level achieved, up to a maximum of $25,000, to BCRF in 2011. To make an even bigger impact toward ‘unlocking a cure’ for breast cancer, Master Lock will also challenge players to make their own donations via a simple link on the game page. Employee testimonials and conversation on the Master Lock Facebook page will spur additional dialogue and awareness of breast cancer research and prevention.  BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide.

My Take:
I received the above pink Combination Padlock for my review. I love this lock, it is so beautiful and shiny.  Plus is always reminds me of the cause behind it. Master Lock is a fabulous brand and I love how they are promoting such a worthy cause.  I've raised $7 so far playing the Facebook game myself!
