#CXGivesBack Giveaway

Presenting to you: the giveaway that gives back. Running from December 11-22, enter to win some awesome prizes that are for a good cause.

Update: We just revealed all the prizes in the final giveaway bundle! Read about them below or check out our vlog for more details.

There’s nothing better than the holiday season—time off from school and finals, spending time with family and friends, being cozy and binging like 20 shows on Netflix in a weekend, and of course, most importantly, giving back to those in need. So, we welcome you to the giveaway that gives back: #CXGivesBack.

From December 11 through December 22, we’ll have six days of fun (and easy) giveaways, along with six days of sharing cool content, scholarships, polls, and more. Every day there will be something new, plus a chance to win the big giveaway on December 22. To keep everything organized, we’ve put together this calendar for you—make sure to bookmark it!


Questions you might have

How am I giving back? Each small giveaway will involve something charitable, whether it’s telling us what your favorite charity is or showing us you’ve supported a cause recently.

When are the giveaways? The giveaway days are a surprise! You have to come back to the calendar to see what’s up for that day.

How do I win? One person on social media will be randomly selected each day there is a giveaway. And the cool thing about this is everyone who enters to win any of the giveaways is entered to win the final awesome bundle package on the 22nd!

Can I enter to win on a non-giveaway day? Yes! We have polls, questions, and trivia happening on the other non-giveaway days. Make sure to check the calendar to see the question or poll and share on social media with #CXGivesBack and your response to the topic of the day. You’ll be entered to win the big bundle on the 22nd.

Can I enter more than once or for more than one giveaway? Yes! Keep sharing, keep trying, and the more times you enter, the better your chances to win the big final bundle.

What do I win?

Five people will win $20 Amazon gift cards by playing along with our giveaways throughout the 12 days.

One person who has entered the giveaways and/or played along with our polls and trivia will be entered to win one big bundle of awesome products. Here's whats in the bundle:

  • Sseko Painterly Moon Clutches, Hope Charm, Brave Bracelet, and Be Brave cards: Sseko provides employment and scholarship opportunities to women in Uganda who are working to pursue their dreams and overcome poverty.
  • Love Your Melon Black Speckled Beanie: Love your Melon donates 50% of its profit to pediatric cancer research

  • Sprout Colored Pencils: The stub of these colored pencils that can be planted after use, promoting recycling and environmental sustainability.

I just discovered your site and LOVE it—fun, interesting, full of incredible information you can’t find anywhere else, and a godsend for those of us in the college counseling business. I am a fan!

CollegeXpress has helped me with the college application process. The tips and tricks for important essays were so helpful. I also gained useful knowledge about college life. Even though I’m fully online, CollegeXpress has helped me develop a sense of how college is in person. The experiences from college students that were featured on their Instagram page have shown the good, the bad, and the “secret” life on campus from a reliable perspective. Not to mention, they relieved my feelings of anxiety about the workload. I can now understand how it can be stressful, but it takes self-control and willpower to get assignments completed on time and with quality.

I love this website and have been using it for years with my students. I originally bought products through Wintergreen Orchard House and appreciated having key facts at my fingertips when advising students. Your site is easy to access and offers a wide array of topics I need as a busy college counselor.

CollegeXpress has been a huge help! The website is very organized with finding the right scholarship for anyone and anything. With CollegeXpress, I've been able to find many scholarship opportunities to apply for. Not only that, I'm also able to search for the colleges I have interest in and see what’s required and what scholarships they offer. I've learned a lot from CollegeXpress. They've helped me in many ways to achieve my goals!



High School Class of 2022

CollegeXpress has provided me with tips that were for college students, but as a high school junior, they were still very useful. Not only that, it also gave me an idea of what to expect when it comes to going to college or already being in college. I want to say thank you to CollegeXpress, and I hope you continue the wonderful tips until I hopefully get into college and throughout my college journey.
