“Vine” heart throb from North Carolina reaches out to 3.25M followers
What: Win a Day with Carter Reynolds
“Vining” is popping up everywhere – the hugely popular new social media trend from site – www.vine.co – which allows you to post a 6 second maximum length video with sound…about pretty much whatever you want.
And the phenomenon is growing a whole new host of young celebrities.
Including 18 year old Carter Reynolds from Connelly Springs, North Carolina, who boasts over 3.25 million followers between his several vine accounts.
Recently in Tampa for a meet and greet where approximately 1,000 young fans turned out to see the rising ‘Viner’ in person, Carter’s father attended with him and bumped into the Chief Operating Officer of the Children’s Cancer Center, whose daughter was one of the admiring fans.
After a brief chat about the Center and their mission, the senior Mr. Reynolds felt he and his son could do something to help the center. The result is this competition.
Aligned with the Center’s upcoming event, the Gelatin Plunge – www.GelatinPlunge.com – Carter is hoping to raise $20,000 for the children and families served by the center. When he does, one lucky fan – chosen at random from the donors on his fundraising page – www.crowdrise.com/carterreynolds – will win an all-expenses paid opportunity to meet the star in person and spend the day together. She will be able to bring her best friend along plus one guardian each, on a fully paid return airfare to Charlotte, N.C., be met at their hotel (also included) by Carter in a Limo, and whisked off to Carter’s family home for the afternoon, followed by dinner at the star’s favorite restaurant.
And locally, when the goal is reached, young Ava, a 5 year old battling Wilm’s Tumor Stage 3 cancer who is served by the Children’s Cancer Center, will have the opportunity to slide into a pool of 2,000 gallons of gelatin on Carter’s behalf!
