At last, I am ready to reveal my exciting new monthly giveaway! We have all seen giveaways in the past. Commenting on posts in order to win cool baubles and trinkets is a great way to test our luck and win free swag. When thinking about how to intentionally incorporate a giveaway on Makeunder, a light bulb went off.
As you know, each Friday throughout 2009 I have been divesting myself of something I don’t need/use/love. I have called it the End of the Week Exfoliation. I expected to feel liberated from possessions I would not normally get rid of on a weekly basis. I did not expect that others would follow suit, and begin Exfoliating themselves.
The Giveaway Concept
Every person that emails me a photo and 1-2 sentence blurb about why they are exfoliating the item pictured will be eligible to win the giveaway at the end of the month.
- Everyone participating will have the ability to connect with others who are also working to improve their lives and declutter.
- Exfoliating participants will have a chance to post a link to their own personal blog/website beneath their exfoliation submission, increasing traffic and connections.
- Participants will also have the opportunity to submit 1 item a week for up to 4 weeks every month. Which means people submitting once a week all month will have four chances to win the giveaway, participants who submit once during the month will have one chance and so forth.
- Participants are on “scout’s honor” in terms of disposing of their exfoliation items. As a Makeunder community focused on improving our lives, we trust that submissions are genuine.
How to Submit
- Send me your exfoliation image to firstname.lastname@example.org with a 1-2 sentance summary explaining why you are exfoliating the object. Include your blog/website link if you would like that included below the image.
- Submissions must be emailed before Thursdays at 12:00PM Eastern Standard Time in order to appear on that week’s Friday Exfoliation.
- Submissions are moderated by myself. Inappropriate items will not be posted nor will be eligible for the giveaway.
- On the last Friday of every month, a giveaway winner will be randomly selected by a number generator and announced.
