Threads for Teens Teams Up with The Hunt!
We have some super exciting news to share! The Hunt (thehunt.com or The Hunt on the app store) is teaming up with Threads for Teens to donate up to $15,000! What is The Hunt? Well, it is where you go after you have been on Pinterest, Tumblr, Twitter, or really anywhere on the internet, and you find something that you want to buy, but there is no link directed to where to go. That’s where the Hunt comes in! They have a thriving community of people who might see a perfect formal dress, spring break bathing suit, or really any item and not know where to buy it. On The Hunt, you can post a picture of what you are searching for so that others, who may have stumbled across this item before, can tell you where to buy it. This also works the other way around. If you are browsing through different items, and see a Hunt that you know where to find on the internet, you can add the link as a Find. Whenever you add a Find, you have the chance to earn Gem badges, which makes the experience fully interactive. The Hunt is also backed by some pretty cool supporters, including Tyra Banks and Ashton Kutcher.
So, how can you help Threads for Teens!?!?! Here's how you can get involved, all for free!
1. Create an account on The Hunt App or Thehunt.com
2. Browse the feed of coveted items
3. Solve someone’s Hunt -- Show them where to buy it by adding a link
Solve as many Hunts as you can from 7/15- 7/29! For more info check out www.thehunt.com/threadsforteens
If 100k Hunts are solved, The Hunt will donate, $5k, 150k Hunts $10k and if we can get to a total of 200k Hunts they will donate $15k!
This awesome partnership came to be when I (Allyson), applied for an internship for this summer with The Hunt. I am constantly on Pinterest looking at clothes and get so frustrated when I click on a 'dead' link. Randomly, I saw an ad for them on Facebook, checked out the website, and became addicted. After applying for the internship, The Hunt expressed interest in working with Threads for Teens! The Hunt is all about helping girls through fashion, which is essentially the same as Threads for Teens, which makes this partnership extremely well aligned Definitely check out their website, because it is awesome and extremely useful/helpful. In the process you will be helping Threads for Teens!
Please let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to answer them!
