IMPORTANT UPDATE: This raffle was completed and a winner was chosen in March 2011. Thanks to everyone who entered it! You can view the blog post where the winner was announced here. Stay tuned for future fun activities on my new blog that will be launching in early 2012!
Welcome to Kawaii's Lalaloopsy ButtonTails Giveaway Raffle! Read this entire blog post for all of the information regarding the giveaway, and please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you might have. ^__^
The reason behind the raffle
Lalaloopsy dolls have become a huge sensation for both adults and children around the world, including myself! Recently, I've been working on a special Lalaloopsy custom and I'm planning to sell her very soon. I thought hosting a fun raffle would help celebrate the beginning of a fun new custom doll journey for me. ^o^
I am raffling off a brand new Lalaloopsy ButtonTails cat plushie (seen above). It's one of the two current ButtonTails releases and has a value of about $15.00 USD. This raffle is completely free of charge, meaning that you will not have to pay for the ButtonTails OR the shipping. Both are my gifts to you!
The raffle will begin today, March 28th, and will end this Friday, April 1st, at noon (Central US time).
The raffle is open to adults (ages 18+). While a large part of the Lalaloopsy market may be geared towards children, I have to ask that only people who are 18 years and older enter the raffle. The winner will have to provide me with a home address and I find it appropriate to ask only adults for that information.
If you're younger than 18, feel free to show your parents this blog post. They must then follow the given directions in order to enter the raffle for you. (I will not accept entries from children who say they have a parent's consent.)
The raffle is open to people in the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe (with the exception of Italy).
How to enter
ONLY ONE ENTRY IS ALLOWED PER HOUSEHOLD!
1) Read this entire blog post so you know all of the information before entering.
2) Leave a comment in this blog post stating that you're entering. In the name field, make sure to enter your real first name. You only have to say that you're entering in your comment. The rest of your personal information can go in just the email!
3) Send an email to me (email@example.com) with the following information:
Name (first and last):
4) Check my blog and your email on April 1st (sometime around 1-2 PM) to see the announcement about the winner.
I ask for both a comment and an email for the rare occasion that I don't receive your email. Your location will give me an estimate for what I'll need to pay for shipping, and it will also help me make sure that people aren't entering more than once.
After I receive your comment and email, I will email you back with your raffle number. And then on April 1st, I will use http://www.random.org/ to pick a winner! I will immediately contact the winner by email to let them know that they've won the giveaway. The winner will have two days (until April 3rd at noon) to email me back with their address. If I do not hear back from the winner within that time, I will pick a second winner and go through the same process.
Thanks for entering!
I'd like to thank everyone who enters and to anyone who passes along this blog post to other people. If this Lalaloopsy giveaway is successful, I'll try to hold more in the future!
