The Sweepstakes is open only to individuals who: (a) are at least 18 years of age at the start date of the Entry Period (September 18th, 2019 (each, an “Entrant”); and (b) are legal residents of and reside within any of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia.

The Sponsor creates relationships with various companies and individuals to create exciting prizes and experiences (collectively “prizes”). Prizes are then made available from time to time through sweepstakes, the proceeds of which are used to benefit the identified Charity. Each sweepstake creates an awareness of the Charity for that respective sweepstake. Entering any sweepstake(s) sponsored by the Sponsor is free; however, any Entrant can opt to select to donate to the chosen charity while completing the online entry form.
There are two method[s] of entry:

A received donation to the Charity will entitle the Entrant to one Sweepstakes entry. In addition, in the event the Entrant (A) shares the donation information via social media with a friend and (B) that friend also donates to the Charity, the Entrant will receive, for each such friend who donates, one additional Sweepstakes entry (each, a “Bonus Entry”) in the Sweepstakes for each shared friend who makes a donation to the Charity.
