Jarrod Fairclough – Omaze is a great site that raises money for charity and giving people all around the world entries to win some amazing prizes. They’ve had contests to win a karaoke session with Kermit and a day with Cookie Monster, and now they’re partnering once more with Sesame Street to give you the chance to win a virtual playdate with Big Bird and Abby Cadabby!
From the Omaze website:
The letter of the day is “P” for “playdate”… as in the playdate you’ll have with Big Bird and Abby Cadabby! You and a friend will join these two furry friends from Sesame Street for a truly magical time on video chat. You’ll sing songs together, show off your dance moves, play your favorite games, and just have so much fun with Big Bird and Abby Cadabby! The air may be sweet on Sesame Street, but friendships near and far are sweeter.
