Alright, dear readers, it is time to try something a bit different. Â While we have given away watches before, but we have never tied it into some form of charitable action. Â However, when our pals over at Hager suggested that we run one, I knew just the project to support.
We have good friends who’s daughter has gone through a tremendous medical trial. Â As these things are wont to do, it has caused the bills to pile up. Â Another friend setup a GoFundMe page to help with that, and that brings us to today. Â While their daughter, Samara, has been making improvements, those bills are still accumulating.
To help out, what I’m proposing is something rather simple. Â The first part is just like any other giveaway we run – head on over to the giveaway page, do your entry there, and then comment below what you plan to do for Thanksgiving, or something that you’re thankful for. Â Would you like to get a bonusÂ entry? Â That’s pretty easy as well – head on over to the GoFundMe page, give a donation, and savor that feeling of helping someone out. Â Then, when you have received your donation confirmation email, send us a screenshotÂ of the header of the email. Â We don’t need the financial details which show up lower – just the confirmation that you donated to the campaign (you should receive this email even if you donate anonymously).
So, yes, you read that right. Â Though we’re trying to raise money for Samara, it isÂ not a requirement that you donate to be entered in to the giveaway. Â Read on below to see what we’re giving away, and how we’re going to trigger the giveaways.
While this started out a simply a Hager Commando Professional giveaway (reviewed here), I’ve decided to go into my own collection and add some moreÂ goodies to the giveaway pile. Â So, not only will the Hager be in there, we’ll also have the Borealis Sea HawkÂ in the mix, along withÂ a Frederique Constant Horological SmartwatchÂ up as a possible reward.
As I mentioned above, you can enter this giveaway just like any other, and you can pick up a bonus entry byÂ sending us that screenshot. Â Since we’re not requiring you to donate, how are we going to trigger the giveaway points? Â Well, it will still be by hitting milestones on the GoFundme page.
Currently, the funding is just short of $62k. Â So, when the funding level is at $62,300, the Borealis is given to one of our pool of entrants. Â At $62,600, the Hager is given away. Â Finally, at $63k, then the Frederique Constant goes to a lucky winner. Â If you’re not able to donate, you can still help us hit those milestones – just share the campaign on social media, email, word-of-mouth, however. Â Let’s do some good here, gang. Â On behalf of our friends – Samara’s family – thank you in advance!
