They are made by the Zazzle company - they're super cute! (and I have them on hand so I can ship them from here!)
So you can tell your friends, or not tell your friends. It's totally up to you. It is not required. I only do these things to say thank you to my fans who are most obviously my supporters and the backbone to any successful business or organization.
The giveaway will be a fans name drawn at random - I usually hit up random.org to help me select a # between 1 and however many fans we have - and whichever fan on the list coincides with that # will win the prize!
Now that's not to say I won't be having giveaways in between. Every now and again I like to do a random giveaway - so you should also keep your eyes peeled for those!
Now, this giveaway, in particular, won't ONLY be done at 300 people. I think every 100 people that are added on, I'll do another. So at 400, 500, 600 etc - I will do another giveaway. Not necessarily always a calendar - there are other things to be won! :)
Also, you should note, that the Facebook company is not associated with my art or any of the giveaways I do. It's strictly for fun because I enjoy them and I think it's important to thank the fans!
Like I said, you can share with your friends, post this on your blog, write an update about it - all of which would be greatly appreciated - but you are not required to do so in order to be entered into the giveaway. Any and all fans are eligible. So whether it takes an hour or a month, anyone who is a fan has the chance to win a calendar! :)
If there are any questions, you can feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org - I'm usually really quick to respond!
Thank you!!! :)
