I have decided to hold a holiday giveaway that is open to any child of an MC member. It isn't about need, just about the spirit of giving.
Between now and the 20th, I will randomly select children to receive a gift from me. It will be done by using a random number generator to select replies. I will also use a random number generator to assign a value to the gift between $10 and $50. (The value will be used as an approximate value depending on the items that I can find that fit what the child likes. The value is withouth shipping expense.) So, it will be kind of like a lottery.
1) You must reply to this post giving one child's age, sex, and the types of toys or other items that he/she likes. Enter a new reply for each child. You do not have to state the child's name in the reply if you do not wish to. You can include the child's picture or other information if you choose, but this will not increase any odds of winning since selections will be random.
2) Your reply cannot be anon.
3) You must be a bronze member or higher in MC prior to being selected.
4) You must be willing to provide shipping information and be willing to confirm that you received the gift. Tracking info will be used.
5) After I feel there are enough replies, I will begin randomly selecting winners and posting what they won. I will continue to randomly select winners through December 20th. I am not going to say how many will be selected because once I get started giving, I usually get carried away. The first time I decided to help one family on here, I ended up helping 10. So, I have decided to not put a number on it.
5) This contest is open to members outside of the US. I do not mind paying for shipping. Just know that in certain circumstances that the gift may be received after the holidays are over depending on shipping times or how complicated shipping is since many sites do not ship directly to certain areas.
6) You can enter each child multiple times to increase your odds of winning. Once a child has won, they are not eligible for another prize. You are able to win multiple prizes per family.
