Help a Friend Out, Yo! It's a Giveaway!

So here's the skinny:   I don't love contests.  I don't love how they fill up your facebook page or blow up your twitter feed (or whatever that thing is called).  I don't love when people make you do things in order to give you gifts.

That said, I don't love me this morning.

Because we're going to band together to take part in a contest, and if you compete, you have the option of winning something.  Trust me, I'm a giver, if I could I'd send you all presents, all the time.
ASIDE: This makes me think of the lunch a Chinese friend took me to and tried to pump me for information on how to date an American girl.  But that's a story for another time.
Anyhow, let's get down to the brass tacks:

This is a facebook contest.  It has nothing to do with me, other than I know one of the participants, and I really really really want him to win. 

Here's his picture:

Awesome, right?

His name is Daniel.
He's trying to get the most votes for his "Planking Pic" in order to win $500.
Him and his darling wifey are due to have a baby approx. 3 days before me.
They want the money to put furniture in their nursery.
Y'all, he's just trying to get his baby a crib.
We can surely support that, even if we do hate contests on facebook.
(You're with me on that, right?)

Here's where you come in:
  • Step 1: Go to Upstate Adventure Bootcamp's Facebook page.  "Like" them, even if you don't really.  Trust me, it's not lying.  We've got dispensation from the Llama for this one.
  • Step 2: Find The above picture, and "Like" it.  Be glad you don't have to lie about this one, in case you felt like you were lying before.  I mean, who doesn't like the picture?  (His name is Daniel Keaton, in case you need to search the page to find it).
  • Step 3: Come back here and tell me that you have completed steps 1 & 2.  Tell me how you feel about planking, or contests, or soup that has grown cold. - 1 entry
  • OPTIONAL: Share this contest on your Facebook page with the following blurb, and then come back and tell me you did that, too.  "Help Daniel Keaton get his baby a crib by liking Upstate Adventure Bootcamp, and then liking the picture of a guy in an awesome sports coat planking on a horse!" - 2 entries.  Because spreading love is a powerful thing.
The contest goes until Friday at 5:00 PM, so on Saturday, I'll draw a name from the list of my friends (that'd be you all, peeps!) and that lucky winner will win a wallet from TFW's sweat shop.  Trust me, there is no sweating going on.  Although I don't have pictures of the actual product, it'll look something like one of these:

So go on, get your vote on!  Daniel, he has no idea that we're doing this.  So it's like a surprise.  A little goodwill toward your fellow man, if you will.  Which reminds me, we are T-3 months until Christmas!  A wallet might be a nice choice!

I couldn't Plank if I wanted to,

    Hi Mariah! I did steps one and 2, and his sport coat is awesome! Also, I hate soup that has grown cold, but love soup that I didn't heat (i.e. I eat it straight out of the can, don't judge) Hope you are well!

  2. I did all of it, all of it, all of it - Wallet please?

  3. Oh, and I much prefer BBQ over soup. Most soup. Italian Wedding Meatball Soup is another story and if I had the choice between that and BBQ I would choose both and pay the consequences of an over full tummy and under full wallet.

  4. I did both so that's one, two entries. I also added my own blurb, hope it's okay.
    "Go ahead, I did it and it didn't hurt a bit. Plus, he's a really nice guy and I'm sure his baby will be a really nice baby."

  5. Such an awesome picture! I "liked" it for real.
