With football season underway, NFL pro-bowler Vernon Davis has teamed up with Yiftee to launch a creative fundraiser for The Vernon Davis Foundation for the Arts. This foundation puts art scholarships and art supplies in the hands of youth who need it the most.
Mr. Davis is giving 20,000 Yiftee gifts to his fans who respond to his social media messages, download the Yiftee iPhone™ or Android™ app and enter a secret code. Anticipating that the 20,000 gifts will go fast, additional fans who download the app and enter the code up until November 25, 2013 will be entered in a Grand Prize Drawing to win two tickets to the December 8, 2013 San Francisco 49ers™ game vs. the Seattle Seahawks™, a limited edition 49er jersey autographed by Mr. Davis, or $100 Yiftee bucks to buy more gifts for their friends. No purchase is required, limit one gift per person.
Vernon Davis started VDFA in 2010 to promote art education and appreciation among youth from disadvantaged backgrounds. “I’m as passionate about the power of art as I am about football – both made significant differences in my life,” commented Mr. Davis, “it is a privilege to be able to work with kids to lift their spirits and fulfill their dreams through art. With Yiftee, I get to appreciate my fans with thoughtful gifts, support local businesses and fulfill the VDFA vision.”
Yiftee customers give gifts such as a latte or a lunch to their friends to say thank you, happy birthday or thinking of you. These gifts benefit local shops and restaurants by driving profitable business into their stores. Mr. Davis is pleased to participate as a merchant, offering fans the choice of a gift at his local Jamba Juice® franchise store at 3942 Rivermark Plaza, Santa Clara, CA, among other local venues.
