Each week, PayPal will select the top three party pictures and deposit $500 into the party-host’s PayPal account.
Melbourne, 24 July 2020: With millions of Victorians having re-entered a ‘Stage 3’ six-week lockdown on 8 July, the state faces a long winter at home, unable to go outside except for essential activities. To offer some entertainment during this period, PayPal Australia has relaunched the It Pays to Keep Your Distance challenge and is inviting Victorians to throw the best iso-party at home, to go into the running to win one of three, $500 prizes.
The challenge kicks off for Victoria this Friday and will run for the next two weeks. To enter, all Victorians need to do is gather their family or friends together virtually, throw an awesome party, and share a screenshot of their party in full flare on Instagram. Make sure to follow the @PayPalAU Instagram page, include the hashtag #PayPalisoparty and tag @PayPalAU in the post. Each week, PayPal will select the top three party pictures and deposit $500 into the party-host’s PayPal account.
The catch? Everyone knows an iso-party isn’t a party, without a theme. So, to spice things up and inspire partygoers to get inventive, PayPal has set weekly themes:
If you are celebrating a birthday party, anniversary party or baby shower, you are still eligible to enter. PayPal will also be awarding these celebrations!
PayPal’s Shopping Expert, Danielle Grant, said now there is no reason for Victorians to say they have nothing to do this weekend:
“Our thoughts and hopes are with Victorians in this uncertain time as they return to lockdown and are unable to visit their loved ones. Despite not being able to meet face-to-face, it doesn’t mean you have to be completely isolated. Connecting online is a great way to hang out with family and friends and look after our mental health during this challenging period.
If you’re looking for things to do this weekend, look no further – gather your friends online and throw an iso-party! We want to see creativity, flare, and out-of-the box thinking!”
To help Victorians throw the ultimate iso-party, Danielle Grant shares her top tips and tricks:
