Domino's Are Giving Away A Year's Supply Of Free Pizza, But There's A Catch
Here’s a question that doesn’t need asking but I’m going to ask anyway: how much would you like free pizza for a year? A lot, I imagine. So much so that you’d probably pay for it. Sure, it’s a paradox, but one worth creating.
Well it turns out that if you’re lucky enough, you won’t be expected to pay for anything, since Domino’s are treating the good people in the world to a year’s worth of free pizza.
But there’s a catch; you have to be a good person. Annoying, I know.
With what the pizza chain are calling the Order of the Domino’s Empire (ODE) in a sort of take-off of the OBE, Domino’s are rewarding a year’s worth of free pizza to people all over the country, on the condition that they deserve it.
They find out by nominations. So you can go ahead an nominate anyone you know, as long as you think their actions have merited free pizza.
The first person to be awarded an ODE is football manager Kevin Fitzmaurice, who was nominated by his daughter, Keira. She thought her dad was worthy down to all of the help he offers the children that he manages, both inside and outside of the game.
Along with her, many of the players who were previously managed by him pooled together to boost his vote.
The 49-year-old coach balanced his actual nine-to-five with the coaching of Sandhurst Town FC, inspiring the children and even helping them move on to university.= and careers of their own.
“I’m overwhelmed that I’ve been chosen to be honoured as one of the very first ODEs! I had absolutely no idea that my daughter and team had nominated me.
Sandhurst Town FC has been my pride and joy over the last 10 years, I have taught the boys since they were three or four years old and they’re like family to me.“
Meanwhile, 20-year-old Holly O’Shea from Birmingham also received the award after being nominated by her boyfriend, on account of all of the charity work she did.
She became the youngest ever athlete in the world to compete in the Dubai Ironman Challenge, raising money for Palestinian refugees. She also ran campaigns at Loughborough University supporting the LGBT community.
Speaking on the award, she said:
“I was over the moon simply to be shortlisted for the Order of the Domino’s Empire, so to be an official recipient is just incredible.
I know there were probably thousands of people just as deserving and I promise to make sure the pizza is put to good use!“
Along with the pizza, the recipients also get a medal in the shape of a pizza, created by the official OBE manufacturers Toye & Co.
If you want to nominate someone, email ODE@dominos.co.uk with your reasons.
I used one of my free cinema tickets for my friend yesterday… does that count? I’d like it to.
