I’m not going to make you jump through the hoops of following, commenting on or sharing any of our various social media accounts (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc… although I would love for you to connect with us on those!) This isn’t a giveaway to boost our ratings. This, instead, is a giveaway with the hopes of boosting someone’s day.
This giveaway is going to be different from most: Instead of randomly selecting and giving YOU the prize, I want YOU to give it to someone who could use a pick-me-up.
The rules are simple…
• Think outside of yourself. Is there someone around you -- a friend, a relative, a coworker, or someone you may not know but encounter regularly -- who you feel could use a pick-me-up? They may be enduring personal struggles right now or feeling down. Maybe it is someone who always gives to others. Or someone who just works hard and stays positive.
• Did you find that person? Ok, good. Don’t tell me who it is; I wish to respect people’s privacy. Instead, shoot me an email (form below) and just tell me you have your person. Do this before midnight on Thursday (Sept. 1) IMPORTANT: When you fill out the contact form below, enter YOUR first & last name and YOUR email address... NOT your person's!
• On Friday morning, one of those emails will be chosen at random and responded to. If it is your email, I will be contacting you to arrange getting the box to your person. You can either pick up & take the box to your person yourself, I can ship the box to you and you can give the box to your person, or, as long as they are in the US, I can ship the box directly to them (with a personalized note card).
• If your email is not chosen, I will ask that you do something… you have a person. Go tell them that you are thinking of them.
I will not be publicly announcing the winner because I want to respect people’s privacy. That will be just between the winner and their person.
[box]Question: “How do you know that the winner will give the box away and not keep it for themselves?”
Answer: I don’t. All I can do is hold up on my end of the bargain in providing the gift, and hope that the winner holds up on their end of the bargain in giving it. That is the whole point of this. It’s a giveaway.[/box]
So that’s it! Stop what you are doing and think of a deserving person. In the form below, enter YOUR NAME and YOUR EMAIL address (not the person's!) and in the message box, simply answer the following question... Are you going to hold up on your end of the bargain and give the box away?
*** THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO ENTERED! Submission deadline was Sept 1 2016 at midnight. Entry form has been removed. ***
