Nothing can get more manic than cricket in India. For all you cricket fans and Rang De friends out there, we bring you the Rang De World Cup Fever and a chance to bat for a cause… well almost 🙂 Here is your opportunity to participate in the most exciting sporting campaign of the year!
The Rang De World Cup Fever aims to leverage the cricket following for the cause of Rang De and low cost microcredit. You can participate in it by simply making a pledge for a particular match, or for the entire tournament and fulfilling it. Every day we will announce a lucky winner among everyone who has fulfilled the pledges.
How do I participate?
- Go to the pledge registration page at http://bit.ly/g1bKKS
- Enter your details, select a match and create a wacky pledge. You can get inspired by the ones already made and can be seen here http://bit.ly/g1MNOE
- Watch the match
- Go to http://rangde.org/ and invest the amount that you had pledged. In case you are an existing Rang De investor, please remember this amount has to be a new investment and not a re-investment.
- Send a mail to email@example.com from the email address which you had registered in the following format: [Match Name] : [Amount 6. Invested] e.g. India v England : Rs. 600
- Ensure that your Pledge Fulfilled column has been updated by us within 24 hrs of you sending the mail.
- Wait for us to announce the winners
You can make a pledge right now by completing the Rang De World Cup Fever Pledge Form
Our ideas for pledges…
- Wickets by a bowler
- Runs by a batsman
- Catches by a wicketkeeper (if Dhoni catches more than 3 catches….and so on.)
- Number of 6s by a batsman
- Number of 6s by a team
- invest Rs. X if India reaches super 8
- Invest Rs. Y if India reaches semi’s
- Total runs made by a particular team
What will I get out of it?
Wouldn’t it be great, when Sachin and Viru are belting away to glory, you have something to boast about too? Apart from the joy of doing your bit for Rang De’s cause, you can get creative with your pledges and of course spread the word to all your friends and colleagues. All in all ..a fun event that will do some good as well.
Of course, we will be announcing one lucky winner and a winner for the whackiest pledge of the day for every match as well as for the entire World Cup!
