Nick Lachey's Everybody Wins Blog: Hitting the Road in Ohio
Over the next 11 days, Nick Lachey will be blogging about his trip around the country on The Everybody Wins Tour, just for OK!. Stay tuned in to his blogs for all Nick's news from the road as he surprises winners from his new site, Winnit.com.
Welcome to my new blog! For the next 11 days I am going to be heading all over the country during The Everybody Wins Tour, surprising winners from my new website, Winnit.com, and also volunteering at local food banks to help raise awareness for a really great organization called Feeding America.
I’m traveling all over the U.S. in a big yellow tour bus, so I hope that if you see us on the road you’ll beep, wave and say hi!
We just kicked off the tour in my hometown of Cincinnati, Ohio with a trip to the Freestore Foodbank where I spent some time alongside volunteers and met some really incredible fans. We’re on the bus now heading to Pittsburgh, Penn. to surprise a Winnit winner with the iPod Shuffle that she won on the site.
Let me tell you a little bit about what Winnit.com is in case you don’t know: My partners and I came up with this incredible idea for a reverse auction website where instead of bidding the highest amount, the goal is to be the first (and only!) member to bid a price as close to zero as possible without choosing a price that someone else has already bid. The site hosts some really great auctions where we feature products like iPods, Louis Vuitton bags, Nintendo Wii and even a Porsche Cayman! Just last week users won an iPod Nano for $0.10, a Samsung 50” plasma TV for $1.61 and a Louis Vuitton Speedy for $2.07. It’s a really exciting new concept and I hope you’ll check it out here: http://www.winnit.com.
To celebrate the launch of Winnit we decided to hit the road and visit some of our fantastic members that have been winning all sorts of great products in our auctions. I was thrilled that Feeding America was able to join us in putting together this tour because I have been involved with the organization for three years now and I greatly respect the work that they do. Take a look at the Feeding America website at http://feedingamerica.org.
We’re about to stop for lunch, so I have to get going, but I hope you’ll check back here to read more about my cross-country adventure and see some of my own pictures and maybe even some video!
Catch Nick's next blog for OK! on Wednesday, Oct. 7!
