New Community Contest: Season Of Giving!

It's the season of giving and we are getting into the spirit. We are launching a new contest in the Community - ready to play?
We are kicking off WEEK THREE our Season of Giving contest here in the Blackbaud Community.

Here's how it works:

Step One: Collect the winning word every day. It will be located on various pages in the Community. Be sure to check out Community News, your MyCommunity dashboard, Best Practices, Giving Tuesday, Events, Member Spotlights, Member Search, Help Page, and the Jobs page. 

Step Two (optional): Complete the action that goes along with the winning word for a bonus entry.

Step Three: Fill out the form at the end of the week with all 5 winning words. We will draw two winners each week from the eligible entries.

What do you win? We put together an awesome Blackbaud swag bag full of branded goodies for you. A swag bag box! 

The contest runs from Monday, November 28th at 9am (est) and ends on Friday, December 16th at 5pm (est.)

fun!!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:21 AM EST
This is great. Will the winning word appear in a bright green circle as "snowflake" did?
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:21 AM EST
Fun stuff!!!!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:21 AM EST
a game - fun!! :)
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:28 AM EST
Yep! The winning word will always appear in the circle like the snowflake word. :-)
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:32 AM EST
Sweet!!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:49 AM EST
A scavenger hunt of sorts! Love it!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:54 AM EST
I LOVE contests!!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 09:56 AM EST
A great way to start the week!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:20 AM EST
is it going to be an IMAGE with the word or just the world randomly inserted in text?
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:28 AM EST
always an image with the word :)
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:37 AM EST
Game on!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:37 AM EST
What a festive idea!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:38 AM EST
Do you we need to go through every page in each section? Multiple pages in the community boards, that is why I am asking
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:40 AM EST
Fun! I'm not sure if I will be able to keep up due to random vacation days and time off this month, but I will try. Will the words be available all week or will they disappear each day?
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 10:44 AM EST
What a great idea!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 11:10 AM EST
Lauren, the word will be located on one of the pages mentioned in this article. There's a new word every day in a different place, Sunshine, so the words will be left up for the week, then taken down for the next week. If we kept them, they'd start piling on top of each other. :-)
  • Posted Wed 30 Nov 2016 01:48 PM EST
Great idea!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 11:23 AM EST
I hope I remember with all the EOY activity going on!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 12:42 PM EST
Cool :)
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 01:05 PM EST
Won't let me type in the first box but will let me type in all the others. Why? Anybody else having this problem or am I just lucky?
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 01:05 PM EST
Hmm, I just checked it Vickie and I only see five boxes that you can write in. How many boxes do you see?
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 01:19 PM EST
What fun!
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 01:24 PM EST
Not finding this word anywhere!

  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 02:24 PM EST
Today's word is in this post, Lauren :-)
  • Posted Mon 28 Nov 2016 03:12 PM EST
Ohhh i thought we had to find it somewhere else and do an activity, didn't realize THIS was it Long weekend!

Sounds like fun!
  • Posted Wed 30 Nov 2016 02:11 PM EST
Hmm, okay.... this is neat... but I feel like I'm being penalized for being busy at work. Not sure if I really have the time to hunt down words every day...
  • Posted Thu 01 Dec 2016 08:23 AM EST
Hey Tom! The words stay up for the week, so you can find all 5 at your convenience. They will drop on Mondays (5th & 12th), so we can set up a new round of winning words for that week.
The winning word for Thursday, December 1st has been posted!

Looking for just a hint, I can't find the Dec. 1 Winning Word??

  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 08:58 AM EST
Done! When do you pull winners Each week or at the end?
  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 09:59 AM EST
I'll probably pull on Monday, Lauren. Get my first goody bag out!
  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 10:24 AM EST
Is the same word supposed to appear almost every day? It has for me. Just checking!
  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 11:02 AM EST
Fun!
  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 11:02 AM EST
How fun!!
  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 12:31 PM EST
We don't see many of these in our area
  • Posted Fri 02 Dec 2016 11:10 PM EST
Alice - the words are in different areas through the Community pages (see links in Crystal's message above) and she has dated them so you know what goes with which date
  • Posted Mon 05 Dec 2016 08:59 AM EST
New week! Last week's words have been wiped clean. Thanks to everyone who filled out a form. The new word of the day for Monday, December 5th has been posted. Go forth and find!
  • Posted Mon 05 Dec 2016 09:56 AM EST

  • Posted Mon 05 Dec 2016 10:12 AM EST
Oh good golly. This is HARD today! Don't have much free time to click around in December. I'll have to come back on my lunch break/
  • Posted Mon 05 Dec 2016 10:41 AM EST

Wednesday, December 7th's winning word has been posted -- seek and find.
  • Posted Wed 07 Dec 2016 09:15 AM EST
Unfortunately, you can't actually search the job postings. I tried that yesterday. Type in search words in the Search Job Postings box and the results are from all over the Community. (I searched "Cincinnati" and the first post in the results is my own in the Giving Tuesday thread. Not a job posting.)
  • Posted Wed 07 Dec 2016 10:57 AM EST
yes unable to search...
  • Posted Wed 07 Dec 2016 11:02 AM EST
but you can Like a job posting...
  • Posted Wed 07 Dec 2016 11:49 AM EST
Very strange. We are looking into the search feature - until then "search" has been removed from the bonus actions. Thanks for the heads up!
  • Posted Wed 07 Dec 2016 12:35 PM EST
job search now works!
  • Posted Wed 07 Dec 2016 02:13 PM EST
Congrats to our week one winner: Lisa Bol! Keep playing, everyone - we'll draw a new winner for this week. :-)
