Are you on the Facebook?  I am. Toeing the Rubber has its own page (which has been sadly neglected as of late but I’m working on it!) and I have a personal account that I use mostly to keep up with friends and family I don’t often see.  It isn’t as horrible or scary as some make it out to be.  Sometimes it’s a lot of fun…and other times it can even be helpful and get you free stuff! This could be one of those times. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is looking for more followers for their Facebook page. The short version is, if you are already on Facebook you just have to go to this link and “like” the page.  That’s it.  So what’s in it for you? The opportunity to win a signed David Ortiz jersey.  But let me let them explain:


Love Big Papi this post-season? If you ‘like’ Dana-Farber, you could win his signed jersey

BOSTON—Would you love a chance to win an authentic Boston Red Sox home jersey signed by designated hitter David Ortiz? Then like Dana-Farber Cancer Institute on Facebook.

            Online now, and running through Friday, Nov. 1, people who “like” Dana-Farber on Facebook, will be entered to win the Ortiz autographed Red Sox jersey. Dana-Farber launched the contest to generate greater awareness about its online community on Facebook, which offers information for cancer patients and their families and friends, and provides an inside look at Dana-Farber, its services and programs, and its employees and volunteers. This year marks the 60th anniversary (#JFRedSox60) of the historic partnership between the Red Sox and the  Jimmy Fund, which together support adult and pediatric cancer care and research at Dana-Farber. From Ted Williams to Mike Andrews to Mo Vaughn to Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Will Middlebrooks, Red Sox players have been quick to support the Jimmy Fund and Dana-Farber, including visiting patients at the clinics and helping with fundraising initiatives. The chance to win the autographed Ortiz jersey continues this tradition and is part of a season-long celebration of the 60th anniversary. Contest participants must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia as of the date of entry in order to be included in the drawing. No purchase is necessary and only one entry per participant is allowed. Official rules are available online here. The drawing will be held at 5 p.m. on Nov. 1.
