Once you've performed a random act of kindness and liked and followed the Join Us Around the World and Collective Culture social media pages, you'll be eligible to compete. Four metro-Denver meetup sites where hopeful contestants can congregate promptly at 5, 6, 7 and 8 p.m. tonight will be revealed consecutively one hour in advance to qualified entrants. If you get to one meetup first, you're on your way to world travel. Good luck!
