CHICAGO, Sept. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA is headed to the Windy City for Chicago's Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry, partnering with a local chef for the annual fundraiser that brings the city's top chefs, mixologists and tastemakers together to support No Kid Hungry's work to end childhood hunger in Chicago and across America.
In anticipation of the event, LG is launching "Selfless Selfies," a social media campaign inviting Chicagoland consumers to "snap a selfie" to help raise funds for No Kid Hungry.
"LG is committed to delivering on its 'Life's Good' promise, and we're proud that our partnership with No Kid Hungry helps make life a little better for struggling children in America," said David VanderWaal, vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. "By helping to raise both awareness and funds for this important cause, we are making moves towards a brighter and healthier future for all."
Selfless Selfies Social Media Campaign Helps Feed Kids
LG's Selfless Selfies social media campaign encourages consumers to visit the LG kiosk at select Chicago-area Sears stores through Oct. 18 to sign a dinner plate or snap a selfie before sharing a photo of either on Instagram or Twitter with accompanying '#LGFillthePlate' and '#Sweepstakes' hashtags. For each image shared with '#LGFillthePlate' and '#Sweepstakes' on Instagram or Twitter, LG and No Kid Hungry will provide 10 meals to help feed kids in Chicago and across the country.
Consumers who take part in Selfless Selfies with LG and Sears will be entered into sweepstakes drawings for a chance to win one of two $500 Sears gift cards.* Participating Sears stores include the Chicago Ridge, Schaumburg and Oakbrook locations.
LG Partners with Noted Local Chef for Chicago's Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry
At Chicago's Taste of the Nation for No Kid Hungry, held on Oct. 5, LG will partner with Jason Vincent, partner and chef of Logan Square restaurant Giant, to serve up a special dish to attendees as they explore LG's new Black Stainless Steel Series of refrigerators, ranges, dishwashers and microwaves. The new kitchen suite incorporates a warm, satin-smooth and sophisticated finish that is also fingerprint and smudge resistant, making it easier than ever to have a kitchen that is attractive, kid-friendly and effortless to maintain.
