3. How to Enter
The Contest is offered electronically via the Internet. Entrants must have a Facebook or Twitter account (each a “Social Network Account”) to enter the Contest. Entrants who do not have a Social Network Account can create one by visiting www.facebook.com or www.twitter.com and following the sign-up instructions.
To enter visit the CanadaHelps Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/canadahelps), or Twitter account (@CanadaHelps), and post or tweet an original “Unselfie” photo of you, using the hashtag #GivingTuesdayCA before the Contest closing date and time. Upon doing so, and subject to the approval of the Sponsor, each Eligible Entrant will receive one (1) entry into the Contest up to a maximum of one entry per day for each unique photo submitted.
Limit of one (1) entry per person per day regardless of social media platform used to enter. For the purposes of this contest, an entry occurs when the contestant posts or tweets a photo and uses the hashtag #GivingTuesdayCA on the contest post.
Entrants must include the hashtag #GivingTuesdayCA with their photo submission, and comply with the photo format and content requirements set out below to be eligible. Entries must be received on or before 11:59 p.m. EST each day to be eligible to win that day’s daily prize. Anyone found to use multiple Social Network Accounts to enter the same photo will be ineligible. If an entrant posts a photo containing inappropriate content, the photo will be removed and he or she will be disqualified.
Multiple entrants are not permitted to share the same email address. Any attempt by any entrant to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, or using any robot, script, macro, or other automated service, are not permitted and will void all that entrant’s entries and that entrant will be disqualified from the contest (in the sole discretion of CanadaHelps). In the event of a dispute the authorized account holder of the email address used to enter will be deemed the entrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the submitted address. Potential winner may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder.
