*Update 2 – There is no deadline for entries / the contest. The contest will end when all prizes are exhausted, and I expect it to last about 2 weeks, with a giveaway every 3-4 days.
*Update 1 – Wow, I have been getting so many responses, that my messenger is locking up a little. Add me as a friend, and then send me your name and main email, and you will be entered. I may be slow to respond, just a warning in advance!
It isn’t a frequent occurrence that I have something significant to give away. So, you can imagine how surprised I was when I discovered that I’d be able to give away an Xbox 360. You can’t argue with a free game console, especially when it’s free and benefits a good cause. Every instant message sent benefits the charity of your choice!
