Let’s call this the Haul of Fame. If you’ve ever wanted to get your photo on the side of a U-Haul truck, now is your chance. The company is launching a photo contest that also raises money for the Red Cross. Here’s how it works:
From November 15 to December 31, 2014, when you Instagram a photo of your own personal moving adventure with the hashtag #UHaulFamous, the company will donate $1 to the American Red Cross, to a maximum of $30,000. Your photo also will be entered in a contest for the chance to have it plastered – er, printed – on the side of one of 5,000 U-Haul vehicles trucking around North America.
Even if you don’t win the grand prize, there are twenty $100 U-Haul gift certificates, and an iPhone 6 giveaway.Click here for all the U-Haul photo contest information. It’s also where you can track the progress and whereabouts of photos selected for printing.
