This Valentine’s Day share photos for the chance to win GODIVA for Facebook friends

NEW YORK, NY (January 15, 2013) – This Valentine’s Day, GODIVA is honoring one of the greatest acts of love: sharing. Through their “Share the Love” sweepstakes, an engaging photo sweepstakes on the brand’s Facebook page and website GODIVA.com, GODIVA shares their love by offering consumers a chance to win GODIVA chocolate for them and their Facebook friends.

The “Share the Love” Photo Sweepstakes encourages consumers to upload and share photos of themselves with their loved ones on the GODIVA Facebook page, for an opportunity to win and share the grand prize of free GODIVA chocolate with 500 of their beloved Facebook friends.

To celebrate the sweepstakes in the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day, the GODIVA boutique at the Rockefeller Center, New York City will feature an interactive pop-up photo kissing booth, created entirely out of decadent GODIVA chocolate. Consumers who visit the boutique will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to pose for photos and share them with their friends and family via social media. Participants can also upload their photos and enter to win the 2013 “Share the Love” Sweepstakes.

“At GODIVA, we are dedicated to creating and sharing special moments with our loyal customers. During this Valentine’s Day season, we hope to inspire all chocolate lovers to share their favorite photo captured moments with their friends and loved ones through this unique “Share the Love” program – and of course, share delicious GODIVA chocolate, as well,” says Jim Goldman, President and CEO, GODIVA Chocolatier Worldwide.
