Baltic Amber Teething Necklace GIVEAWAY!!

Butter Round Amber Teething Necklace

Okay, so I have spent WAY too much time trying to think up a contest so I can give away the necklace I got for free from "Inspired By Finn".

It's hard, you know, to think up something that is fair for everyone.  Something you can all take part in, even if you're all from different countries.  Even if you can't drive.  Even if you have a few small children at home that keep you from being able to go out and take part in most contests.
I'm NOT having a "my-kid-is-so-much-cuter-than-yours" contest.
I'm NOT having a "refer me to your friends to enter" contest.

In the true spirit of giving, I'm going to have a
PAY IT FORWARD contest!  

I'm giving you something for free (when most people probably wouldn't have even told you they were getting something for having people use that code for 25% off).  And so, in return, I want you to do something for someone else. 

What can I do, you may ask?  LOL  Well, lets see.

You can bake a cake for the elderly gentleman next door.
You can pay for a coffee for the next person behind you in the drive through line.
You can take some gently used items to the women's shelter in your area.

You can bake cupcakes for the kids in/on your child's dance class/hockey team, etc.  (Just to say "you're all doing a great job!")
TO SHOW ME WHAT YOU'VE DONE, POST A PHOTO AND AN EXPLANATION OF WHAT YOU DID TO PAY IT FORWARD.  You MUST post your photo on the PAGE WALL before the deadline to be entered into the contest!!!!

Be creative. 

The contest is going to open RIGHT NOW...Sept. 14, 2011.  1:30pm (my time).
I'm going to leave it open for just over a week.  On my birthday, September 24th, 2011, I will close the contest (at NOON, my time!) and begin to choose a winner. 

The winner will be announced on September 30th, as soon as I get out of bed in the morning.
Any submissions after NOON on SEPTEMBER 24TH will not be eligible to win.  I'll post on the page wall that it's closed.

The winner will be chosen by myself, my husband, and whomever else I can find to help me.  LOL 

I PROMISE you that no one I know personally will have any part in the judging, and I PROMISE to be fair.  No one helping me choose a winner will be eligible to win the necklace.

Please know there is only one necklace...your chances are 1 in howevermanyplayalong (so please don't get angry if you don't win!!!) 

The purpose of this kind of contest is that even though ONLY ONE PERSON can win the prize, you ALL did a good deed for someone. 
**When I eventually get something else to give away, the winner of THIS contest is not eligible to win the next one.**

My choice is the final word.  If you can't handle the idea that you may lose, please for the LOVE OF PETE, don't enter. 

I just will not deal with drama.  If you create drama, you will be disqualified from winning.  Again, that is MY say.  If you can't handle THAT, again, please don't enter. 
Lets keep this fun, and remember the intentions for the contest.  Good deeds.
The winner will be announced on the page wall after I have been in contact with them.  I will pay the postage for the necklace, and will be sending it express post (so it can be tracked).  I've seen too many other pages do contests and have drama because their item couldn't be tracked to the winner.

If you have any questions, please post them on the group wall...HERE.

  1. There is a bone marrow drive going on for a friends friend

    I've spread the word and encouraged many to GET SWABBED.

    I myself got swabbed last
    year. I'm trying to get a group of friends to attend the drive.

    Is it weird that I'm actually looking forward to the day that I'm a donor match?!
