Thank you for helping us celebrate 100 Years of Good seafood, family and fun. During 2014 we’ve celebrated in so many ways: we’ve named our iconic mermaid, solicited thousands of nominations from fans for ten $10,000 gratitude awards (to be given out later this year), completed a six-month, 56 city tour across America giving out over $650,000 in Great American Gratitude Awards, and more! Stay tuned here for more exciting news on our Centennial celebration.
To celebrate our Centennial, we’ve given $10,000 donations to 100 nonprofits, charities, grassroots organizations and civic-minded individuals who we know will take it and Pay it Forward by continuing the cycle of good in their communities.
Great American Gratitude Award recipients have spanned the county and represent a variety of community service work—from providing hospital beds in Phoenix and teen mentoring services in Atlanta to teaching inner-city children to swim in Detroit.
We honor each of these ten special individuals—who were nominated by our fans—as shining examples of the Pay It Forward spirit with their own $10,000 Great American Gratitude Award.
To celebrate our 100th anniversary, Chicken of the Sea has been paying it forward to individuals and non-profit organizations by granting 100 awards in the amount of $10,000 to help empower them to continue doing good — and now it’s your turn. Tell us how you pay it forward in your community for a chance to win $100 each day during the final 100 days of the year to pay it forward in your community.
In 2014, we traveled coast to coast giving back to our fans and their communities. We’ve kissed babies, received marriage proposals, and met more mascots than we can count. All along the way, we’ve been so honored to support over 50 non-profit organizations in 56 cities and handed out over $650,000 in Great American Gratitude Awards. Take a look at where we’ve been on our map and through our Facebook photo albums.
After a nationwide contest with nearly 50,000 entries,
Chicken of the Sea is pleased to announce the name of
our iconic mermaid.
