On Friday, April 22, 2022, Soldiers’ Angels will be hosting several contests on our affiliated social media pages to celebrate our angel volunteers and honor Volunteer Appreciation Week which runs from April 17 – April 23, 2022.
Below you will find our official contest rules, eligibility requirements, and other important details.
Contest Rules and Eligibility
Who Can Enter Our Contest?
This contest is designed to recognize individuals that are active and ongoing volunteers with Soldiers’ Angels. Eligible volunteers must be active on one or more of our virtual volunteer teams and/or active at one of our veteran support volunteer locations across the country, AND currently have an active and approved profile in Angel Base Camp.
While we are aware that Soldiers’ Angels has thousands of incredible volunteers across the country who participate or have participated in one-time packing events, veteran food distributions, or other stand-alone events, we ask for your understanding that this contest is only for our volunteers who actively contribute to our organization on a daily or weekly basis throughout the entire year.
How People Can Enter?
Throughout the day on Friday, April 22, 2022, there will be posts shared on our primary social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Each post will contain a description of what must be done to enter the contest. The request may involve posting or commenting with a specific hashtag, captioning photos, tagging friends, and liking posts.
How We Will Choose a Winner?
Those who participate and meet the eligibility requirements as outlined above will be entered in to a random drawing for prizes that will be outlined in each specific post. Throughout the day, we will choose random winners and we will notify them on the social media post as well as via their email address that is associated with their Soldiers’ Angels volunteer account.
Prizes for each post will be described in those posts. We will recap the posts and prizes on this page during or after the day of the contest, as well as the winners once they are selected.
How the Prizes Will Be Delivered?
Soldiers’ Angels representatives will coordinate directly with the winner of each prize to determine if the prizes will be delivered digitally, mailed, or picked up in person (when applicable).

Contest Prizes and Information
All prizes were generously donated for the purpose of recognizing and thanking our angel volunteers. As a volunteer-led organization, we can not do what we do without the incredible time, energy, and commitment of our volunteers. Many of our Angels are members of multiple virtual Soldiers’ Angels teams, participate in many in-person Soldiers’ Angels events and more, all at their own expense. While we wish that we could award all of them for their incredible generosity, these fun contests and prizes are a fun way we can give back to them in a small way for all that they give to Soldiers’ Angels, service members, veterans, and their families.
In order to display an abundance of transparency, we have outlined the prizes that will be awarded throughout the day on April 22, 2022. The prizes are in no particular order and will be described in the social post they are affiliated with on the day of the contest.
This contest is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered by, or associated with Facebook/Meta, Instagram, or Twitter.
