Make Adventure Happen with Rails-to-Trails Conservancy!

This summer, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) has teamed up with Pacifico for a fun promotion called "Make Adventure Happen." From today until October 2, your votes for RTC can help us win more than $30,000 for our trail-blazing work around the country!

Here's how it works. Pacifico has generously offered $100,000 to split among four worthy organizations: RTC, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Surfrider Foundation and Best Friends Animal Society. Pacifico wants to make it easier than ever to rally behind causes you care about, so they're letting your votes determine how the money gets divided.

Each participating nonprofit will automatically receive $10,000, which is tremendous. Then there's a pot of $40,000, which will be split based on the percentage of votes each organization receives; the more votes we get, the bigger our share. On top of that, the leading vote-getter will receive an additional $20,000!

Voting runs today, July 20, through October 2, 2012, and you can vote once a day during that time. (You do have to be 21 years or older to participate.)

To get started, all you'll need to enter the voting site is your date of birth and ZIP code. On the next page, you'll be prompted to enter a code. The best way to find these codes is to pick up specially marked multi-packs of Pacifico Clara beer. If you don't have a code from one of these packs, you can still enter your email address to have a code delivered to you. Copy that code, enter it into the top field, then click to vote for RTC. Right below, you'll be able to see how your vote impacts the total count. It sounds complicated, but don't worry--the steps are fast and easy, and it only takes about 30 seconds from start to finish, even when you're generating a code via email.

We know you get bombarded with promotions and advertisements, particularly during the summer. But any vote you're able to cast, whether it's only once or several times in the next two months, will help boost our percentage of the $40,000 pot--and you might help push us to the top for the final $20,000 reward!

So let's toast to a summer spent outdoors on rail-trails, and help us raise money to develop more trails and make adventure possible in new communities across the country.

we need more rail trails around the country to keep families and retirees fit and active.

Rail trails are an important infrastructure that needs to continually grow. Having interconnecting trails makes for great FAMILY FUN. My sons and I look forward to riding through new areas for you never know what you might find!

So I have to buy a beer to help??? I also never saw this beer anywhere in many states I have been... So, is it an advertising for a beer company or useless help idea?

G'day lucas MI - no, you don't need to buy the beer. It's easy and free! When you visit the site, click 'get code', enter your email, and a code will be delivered to you. Many thanks for your support. We're currently in second place!

I am trying to vote for RTT on Pacifico, but I can't seem to use the code a 2nd time and I can't get a new code sent to my email address.  Thoughts?  Ideas?

Gday Chris,

the Pacifico site does require you to 'Get Code' each time you want to vote. Unfortunately you can't use the same code twice. But thanks for your 1 vote anyway! You shouldn't, however, have any problems getting a new code sent by clicking 'Get Code.' Perhaps try your spam inbox? Many thanks for your support!

Thanks Jake I guess a day is 24 hours after you voted the first time because yesterday they wouldn't send me a new code, but today it was in my mailbox.  I love the trails and will try to vote each day.
