Win a Luxury Montana Getaway While Supporting a Charity Dedicated to Black Voter Rights

Reconnecting with the great outdoors is one of life’s simple pleasures, and in the United States, there's no shortage of beautiful destinations to discover. Near the top of that list has to be Montana, which is home to sprawling plains, portions of the Rocky Mountains, and plenty of outdoor activities to indulge in. Omaze wants to give you the chance to win a luxury six-day glamping getaway to the Treasure State, all expenses paid.

The trip will take place at The Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana, where you’ll get the chance to experience a 37,000-acre cattle ranch, have a private camping butler, and enjoy high-end amenities. You’ll also get an additional $2000 to design how you spend your trip, from spa days to fly-fishing trips to river rafting. It's your trip to customize.

While anyone can enter the sweepstakes once for free, there are ways to improve your odds if you donate under different tiers: a $10 donation gets you 100 entries, $25 gets you 250, $50 for 1000, and $100 for 2000. Donations will go towards Black Voters Matter, an organization working to protect voter rights, strengthen power within marginalized communities, and support organizations working on important issues like mass incarceration, education, and gentrification.

The sweepstakes is open until November 24, and the winner will be announced on December 9. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, safety is paramount, so you’ll have until December 31, 2022, to schedule the trip. Explore the natural beauty of Montana and help people along the way by entering the contest here.
