If you are considering a sabbatical, Danone-owned STōK Cold Brew Coffee has a great offer for you. The company is accepting applications from people willing to take a much-needed paid holiday in what it calls the STōK-bbatical.
It is a unique giveaway that will award three lucky winners with $30,000 each to pursue their dream, and of course, there can’t be a better excuse than this to go on a vacation. But wait there is a catch, you’ll have to temporarily quit your job – or take a log break – to be paid for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
In order to enter this competition, you need to explain your travel plan in a letter of maximum 300 words and send it on or before the Labor Day (Monday, September 2) to the email address of STōK Cold Brew Coffee. Also, you need to be resident of the Continental United States and must have crossed your 21st birthday.
Head over to QuitYourJobAndGetStoKed to get full details about the contest. There is a downloadable fill-in-the-blank letter on the website that will help you inform your boss that you will be taking a sabbatical. Whether you want to see the cherry blossom of Japan or beautiful caves of Brazil, this contest can help you arrange funds and also the willpower to quit your job.
Lindsey Morgan, marketing director for STōK Cold Brew Coffee said,
STōK believes in helping people go after what they want, which is why we’re ponying up the money for fans to temporarily redefine their nine-to-five job. Similar to our cold brew coffee, we believe our STōK-bbaticals provide that extra bolt of motivation and inspiration that people need to turn their passions into actions. We’re thrilled to begin the application process and help STōK fans take some time off to pursue what they’re truly passionate about.
The winners will be paid to pursue a vacation of two to four weeks anytime between October 1 and December 15, 2019. They would need to share the vacation experience on social media using photos and videos. The travelers will be paid a stipend of $10,000 and provided with another $20,000 each to pay for their activities and travel.
Along with offering three STōK-bbaticals, the coffee brand is also working with “Saturday Night Live” star Kyle Mooney, who embodies what it means to “fire himself” from the mundane and live out a STōK-bbatical every day.
