Isn’t it every human being’s innate wish to be able to make a difference in this world? I mean, we all do it whether it be through our work, our children, or our philanthropy but what if we could make a difference by eating chicken wings?
Statistics show that over 100,000 restaurants and small business who temporarily shut down during the past ten months have now permanently gone out of business. That literally means millions of employees are without work, millions of suppliers have lost their livelihood, and hundreds of thousands of investors and business owners have lost everything. Everything. Let that all sink in for a minute.
To be fair, many of us are struggling financially but we cannot just turn a blind eye and hope that everything will get back to normal. We’re too far gone. One thing I’m sure of is that we all still eat!
Remember that “ice bucket challenge” where people all over the world dumped a bucket of ice water over their heads to bring attention to ALS? Or the “22 pushup challenge” to bring attention to the 22 military veterans who commit suicide every day? Those challenges went viral on social media and did what they sought - they brought awareness. Imagine if we could not only bring awareness, but ACTUALLY effect change?
We at Wingaddicts came up with this new “Wingaddicts Challenge” for that very purpose. Not only are we pointing out the problem, but we think we may also have a minor solution.
Our challenge asks you to either order takeout, or (if you’re not uncomfortable with it) visit a restaurant live and order a batch of chicken wings. On your phone, make a quick video and post it on your social media (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, LinkedIn, or whatever you use). It doesn’t have to be long or elaborate. Something like:
“I was nominated for the Wingaddicts Challenge by XXX, to help out area restaurants and I accept the challenge. I am at XYZ where I ordered some buffalo wings (or I am at home after ordering takeout from XYZ). Before I eat one, I’d like to nominate three friends XXX, XXX, and XXX. Let’s make difference!”
Then eat a wing!
What if we could create a sensation? What if we could get a million people onboard? What if we could save even just a few? The next three weeks are the BIGGEST chicken wing weeks of the year.
All you have to do is accept the challenge, order wings, and nominate some friends!
