Do you have a favorite story of finding something you thought was lost forever? Maybe you found something and helped it find its way back to its owner. I want to hear about it!
Please share your story in the comments of my original blog post http://www.sarahjoyalbrecht.com/2009/11/15/finders-keepers-november-giveaway-hello-kitty-flags-chopsticks-and-tote/ to be eligible to win these eight, really cute Hello Kitty flags (approx. 12" x 18" ), a red tote just the right size to store the flags, and three sets of Hello Kitty chopsticks!
The flags say "Open", "Yakisoba", "Takoyaki" (one of my favorite "junk foods" - see the little red octopus peeking around HK's hat?), "Ramen", "Bath Room", "Closed", "Thank You Always," and "Udon".
From the list of comments (and yes, you have to leave a pertinent comment in order to qualify!) my children will draw the winning name.
My hope is that this giveaway will inspire others to be honest and to do the right thing when something that doesn't belong to us is found. I would to hear some great stories to pass on to my children -- who have a bad habit of first saying, "Finder's keepers, losers weepers!" ... but are always sad when someone says that to them!
BONUS: If you mention this giveaway in your blog (send me a “proof” link) or Tweet (via @mrsalbrecht), you will get ONE extra entry. (C’mon! I know some of you get a little carried away with this stuff and I can’t keep track of THAT many tiny pieces of paper!!) PLEASE do me a small favor and post a “proof link” or copy of Tweet so I’m sure to not to miss your extra-entry qualification. (Thanks!)
Please leave your comment by 9PM EST, Friday, November 30th.
The winner will need to provide their mother’s maiden name, social security number, and a valid US credit card number + three digit secret code. JUST KIDDING! I will, however, need their name and mailing address which will be kept strictly confidential.
If they’re agreeable, I’d like to interview the winner and feature them in a future post. I would consider including links in the post to the winner’s blog, favorite cause, home business, etc.
Winning contestants may not enter my subsequent monthly giveaway contests for a year following their win. In other words, if you win in November, 2009, you cannot enter again until November, 2010.
