As you can see an exceptional amount of generousity and time has been taken here to run this for the Gears of War community with no profits made. This is also noted by the mods on the forums and others who have been saying how positive this is for everybody and how unselfish and brilliant this is
Parasidian: Not entering, but i just wanted to drop in and say that this is a wonderful giveaway. I absolutely love seeing contests and giveaways that are creative like this one, really shows the amount of effort you put into it. Thank you for doing this for the community, just reading through it and seeing all the hard work you put into it made me super happy. 🙂
Ho ho ho! 😀
Are you all excited for Christmas? Did you already get all of your presents for each and every family member, friend and your significant other? I haven’t really gotten around to buying everything for my loved ones yet, but I did get some really nice stuff for the Gears of War community 😉 Back when the first Star Trek reboot came out, I decided to make some merch and share the love with other fans. Since I always wanted to do more of these raffles, I thought that now would be the perfect time to do another one. I pitched this idea to the wonderful Jack Felling, and she gave me permission to do this massive giveaway.
I come bearing 50 gifts, at least 1 (mostly 2 and more, depending on the value) per day. Items will be shipped worldwide.
I’ve been collecting codes and designing Gears merchandise over the past 2 months. You can view the full list of items here.
Rules (please read!)
- To enter, you have to be a member for more than 4 weeks on this forum and have more than 5 posts. This is very important to me since I want to avoid having people sign up now and claim some of these prizes, just to immediately disappear afterwards.
- To enter, please post something like “entry for December + the exact number” on that particular day if you can. Since we’re all living in different time zones, you will have at least 24+ hours to enter.
- If you enter for a physical item, you have got be ready to give me your full name + address (or the address of a family member, friend etc./or your P.O. box) via private message. I won’t post any of the addresses in public and I am only going to keep your details until the items have been shipped.
- Winners will be determined via an online random generator and are going to be announced from December 3 through December 28 at around 3 PM EST / 12 PM PST / 8 PM GMT. Since I live in Europe, please allow me some time to send out the codes after I get home from work. Please be patient 🙂
- Physical items will be sent out as soon as possible after the winners have been announced.
Since it keeps happening over and over, a word from the hostess:
Please do NOT enter in advance. This thread is already at page 5, and we’re not even 5 days into December yet. The thread is going to grow even bigger, and I won’t be able to remember each and every post on earlier pages. It’s just impossible to keep up with posts in advance mixed with everyday posts from devoted members. Also; take a moment and think about how unfair it is to people who actually set reminders to show up on certain days to enter the raffle, and even more unfair to people who show up every day. This is not to spite anyone, but if you really think about this for a minute, you will understand.
This is a daily raffle with daily prizes, and I believe one simple rule can be respected, right? 🙂
I am so grateful how much love and support this has received! You all should know that I am really happy how this turned out. All I wanna do is spread the love, celebrate Christmas with all of you and keep this fair <3
Thank you 🙂
