Calling All Insiders! $10,000 Insider Giveaway, We Need Your Help! *UPDATE
First off, no, that isn't a typo, we're actually talking about $10,000! Over the weekend, we were contacted by a marketing representative for a new website called Bublaa that launched a few weeks ago. Part of their launch campaign is a contest for $10,000! The marketing representative felt that our huge userbase could easily help the Insider family win the grand prize.
NOTE: Bublaa is a social-networking site and you are required to be at least 13 years old in order to join the site. If you're younger than 13 and still want to help, please have an older sibling or your parents sign up and help out! All members of the Insider sites, regardless of age, will be eligible for prizes, however.
The contest started 3 weeks ago and ends TODAY, July 15th at 10am PDT (1 PM US Kinz Time/Eastern Time). Thankfully, we were able to take the lead today due to overwhelming support from all of our forum members! With all of our Insider sites combined, with nearly 200,000 members between them, I believe we can overtake them and win the contest! We have lost the lead a number of times and we need your help to stay ahead!
If we win, we will take all $10,000 of the prize and use it for prizes for all of our members. With this kind of huge prize budget, anything goes! Once we receive the winnings, we will ask all of you what prizes you'd like to see and how you want us to award them. You can reach for the sky, and suggest we buy Cheeky Dogs, Cheeky Cats, even non-Webkinz-related items, like an Apple iPad 2!
This is only possible with your help, and we need each and every one of you! I've gone through the site and have provided full instructions on how to remove any publicly-viewable personal information from your profiles as soon as you join the site. Once you've followed those steps, join our "Bubble" and tell all of your friends to help out! Please don't create multiple/fake accounts, it could get us disqualified. Asking family members in your household to help out is a-okay!
UPDATE (1:05pm ET): The contest ended a few minutes ago, and it appears that the Insider Bubble has won! We have the highest number of users and we are currently waiting for verification from Bublaa. Thank you to everyone for all of your help! We can't wait to start selecting and awarding some very special prizes!
UPDATE (2:05pm ET): Bublaa posted the following announcement, "Congratulations [on] the good race! We are going to be validating the result and will announce the winner during the next week."
UPDATE (July 21): Bublaa has confirmed that the Insiders bubble has won! Justin has been in contact with the founder of Bublaa and is making arrangements to collect the money. As soon he has the funds, we can begin planning a fantastic giveaway for all of our Insider members. We can't wait!
