A couple weeks ago I was sent an email directing me towards the Wells Fargo website to find out about this new contest that they were hosting. I was a little dubious at first (“what on earth are they emailing ME for?”), but I checked out the website, and its actually an interesting contest! To sum it all up, they want to hear your story for what you’d like to do “someday”, and they’re giving away money to help these “someday” stories come true. Sounds great, right?

I’ve copied the information I received below, but go check out the website for yourself. Submissions are being accepted until July 25th, so hurry!
