Frequently Asked Questions

When is your next giveaway?

I host 4-6 giveaways every year. All giveaways are announced on my YouTube channel, so be sure to check back frequently for new tutorials and surprises! Giveaways are, of course, dependent on the amount of interest generated by the audience, so be sure to subscribe on YouTube and share with all your friends!

Who is funding the giveaway?

Most giveaway items are purchased with my own money, unless noted otherwise. I do accept sponsors; if you are a brand and would like to sponsor a giveaway, please contact me.

How long do I have to enter the giveaway?

Typically 2-4 weeks, depending on the size/value of the prize and the time of the year. Please refer to the original giveaway video for details.

How do I enter?

Please refer to the original giveaway video for details. Typically, entering entails leaving a comment on YouTube in response to a question. You should also be a subscriber on YouTube. It’s pretty simple and quick! 🙂

How many times can I enter?

As many times as you want! 🙂

I don’t live in the U.S.A. Can I still enter?

Please refer to the original giveaway video for details. Depending on the item(s) and/or occasion for the giveaway, I may or may not ship internationally.

I’m a minor (under 18 years old). Can I enter?

Yes, but please ask for parental permission first! I don’t want angry parents yelling at me. 😉 You will need to provide a mailing address to claim your prize.

Where/how/when will you announce the winner?

Winners are announced through YouTube approximately 1-10 business days after the giveaway has ended. Winners are chosen at random using a Random Number Generator, unless noted otherwise. The announcement will be uploaded in the form of a video under this account.

I won! Yay! Now what?

Congratulations!! 🙂 You have exactly 1 week to get in contact with me via private message on YouTube ONLY. Please do NOT contact me via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, e-mail, or even this website. I can ONLY verify your identity on YouTube. Hence, you must be logged into the same username that you entered the giveaway with. If I do not hear back in 1 week, I will pick a new winner. This will continue until a winner responds and claims his/her prize(s).

Gift Bird Flying Bird origami origamitree.comDo I have to provide my home address?

You will need to provide a valid mailing address in order for me to ship the prize to you! However, if you do not feel comfortable providing your home address, opt to have the package delivered to an office building (e.g., your work place), a P.O. box, a trusted neighbor/friend, or parent.

 

How fast will you ship the prize(s)?

I typically package and ship prizes within 1-14 business days, unless noted otherwise. How long it takes to arrive at your door depends on the USPS. Prizes may be marked as First ClassPriority Mail, or Media Mail depending on the size, weight, and the package contents. I always provide a tracking number for domestic mail (expect a private message from me via YouTube in 1-14 business days). However, no tracking information will be provided for international packages, and these packages will take longer to arrive (sometimes over a month!). Be patient, it’ll get there! 😉 Unfortunately, there’s nothing I can do about lost packages; lost packages will not be replaced, unless the winner(s) wish(es) to pay for insurance at his/her own expense.
