Irvine, Calif. — Vizio launched Tuesday the third installment of its “TDs for TVs” charity contest again, using NFL wide receiver Stevie Johnson, who has switched teams from the Buffalo Bills to the San Francisco 49ers this year, as its national spokesman.
“TDs for TVs” provides fans the opportunity to get involved with Johnson’s on-the-field play and gives back to his favorite nonprofit: Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
For the duration of the 2014 regular season, Vizio will award a 50-inch M-series smart TV each week to a lucky fan.
When Johnson scores a touchdown, Vizio will upgrade the weekly fan prize to a 50-inch P-series Ultra HD full-array LED smart TV.
The local Boys & Girls Club in the city Johnson scores a touchdown will also receive a TV if he scores one or more touchdowns during the game.
After spending most of his career in northern New York State, Johnson returns home this season to the Bay Area. A seventh-round draft pick in the 2008 professional football draft, Johnson’s stellar play during his rookie season in Buffalo earned him the 2010 Vizio Top Value Performer award as the player whose on-field performance most exceeded the value of his contract.
Boys & Girls Clubs provide youths ages 6 to 18 with a safe place to spend time during non-school hours and the summer as an alternative to the streets or being home alone. With nearly 4,000 Clubs across America, as well as on U.S. military installations worldwide, children are afforded opportunities to build new skills that raise each child’s belief that he or she can succeed and receive recognition for personal accomplishments.
