Alibi Hero: Our Weekly Instagram Photo Contest
By Amelia Olson [ Fri Apr 10 2015 3:50 PM ]
Here at the Alibi we love a lot of things. We are moved by the whimsies and strikingly cold realities of being human and living on Earth. Without heroes, who would we be? Who would guide us through the dark times? Inspire us to be better?
Ham, the first chimpanzee in space was launched into the bursting ether on January 31st, 1961. Named after the lab that prepped his precious body for space exploration, Holloman Aerospace Medical Center, Ham continues to inspire all of us at the Alibi and is our elected hero.
Because we can't win our own contest, we asked you to submit pictures of your hero. This week's winner is Instagram user stormyjill, who captioned her picture with the following:
"Abby, Rape Crisis Center of Central New Mexico's Volunteer Coordinator and my best friend. I'm super proud of you and not a lot of people would be able to do what you do for a living. I'm happy to embarrass you and name you as my #alibihero."
Not only are we thankful for the work that people like Abby do on a daily basis, we are also sorta hoping you'll take your BFF out to lunch with the $10 in Alibi Bucks you won. But don't worry, we have some treats for you too!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to redeem your prizes!
