Nine West wants to give $5,000 to charity

Nine West's "Gang for Good" campaign.

Shoe brand Nine West has launched what it’s calling the “Gangs for Good” charitable campaign. The center of the campaign is a contest that will give girls a chance to win a trip to New York City and $5,000 to the charity of their choice.

All entrants have to do is create a gang with your friends -- and they don’t mean “gang” in the gangster sense. Each group must consist of at least three girls, but no more than five. To enter, each group is to submit a video showing the group’s acts of kindness and style to Nine West’s YouTube channel, “Channel 9.” The gangs will be judged based on their style, how they dress individually and how they look as a group and also on the gang’s act of kindness.


The contest is open until Tuesday, April 30. The winning gang will receive an all-inclusive trip to New York City that includes a suite at a hotel for two nights, round-trip airfare, dinner, a $300 Nine West gift card for each girl, an assortment of jewelry and accessories, hair and beauty makeover, and a $5,000 donation to a charity. Nine West will provide a list of approved charities to choose from.
