Usher is so talented and really easy on the eyes too! That is why I was thrilled when he joined the American Cancer Society More Birthdays Campaign - did you know that this year 11 Million cancer survivors are celebrating another birthday??!!! As a member of the American Cancer Society Blogger Advisory Council I not only help shape campaigns but also work to get the word out about new things ACS is doing.
If you are a musician or an artist you can join the ranks of Usher and have your video featured in the More Birthdays Campaign.
This year, American Cancer Society has had some of the biggest names in art and entertainment join us to help create a world with less cancer and more birthdays - from Celine Dion to Rihanna to Eric Carle to Usher. And now it's your turn.
Starting today, we invite you to share your art and music inspired by the fight against cancer in our Create More Birthdays Contest.
Musicians, submit a music video of you performing the "Happy Birthday" song.
Artists, submit original art inspired by the progress we are making against cancer.
Both artists and musicians can submit entries at my.morebirthdays.com. Winning entries will be featured alongside stars such as Justin Bieber, Masha D'yans, Ricky Martin, Lady Antebellum, and more in our More Birthdays online gallery, helping to raise awareness and support for the fight against cancer. The winning musician will also be featured in our online nationwide advertising campaign, while the winning art will be featured in a custom American Cancer Society card collection on TinyPrints.com.
Get more information about contest rules, eligibility, and prizes at my.morebirthdays.com.
Even if you are not inclined to enter, get involved by voting for your favorites! For every vote cast, you'll receive an entry into the Create More Birthdays Sweepstakes for a chance to win More Birthdays prize packs filled with Tiny Prints® cards and ACS gift wrap, limited-edition prints and more, created from the art donated exclusively to the ACS by famous artists.
