Winning

Not only will it be rewarding being a peace campaigner, you also get the chance at winning Ksh 1,000 worth of airtime daily, for submitting the most creative upload. The entry also automatically qualifies you into the grand draw. Here, the cash price for the the victor will be Ksh. 100,000. First runners up will receive Ksh. 70,000, and Ksh. 40,000 for the second runners up. What’s more, the most creative messages will be printed on giveaway T-shirts

Engage Crown Paints

Since Crown Paints is organizing this campaign, you need to like them on Facebook so you can participate in voting for the eventual winner, and on Twitter where you can have any issues/questions resolved.

So the next time you are online, instead of engaging in meaningless tirades on social media, why not help in promoting the message of peace by submitting your entries to this campaign? You might find your message ending up on a t-shirt somewhere! I’m looking forward to a prosperous Kenya after holding peaceful elections, because no matter who wins, the political elite’s lives will not be disrupted by any violence. Rather, it’s you and I who’ll have to suffer the consequences of a broken nation, bear the weight of a dysfunctional economy.

Happy Valentine’s Day. Make love, not war. Peace.
