HOW TO ENTER
Website: Participants may enter the Sweepstakes by visiting www.LittleStar.org/Jessica (the "Sweepstakes Website") during the Sweepstakes Entry Period and following the on-screen prompts. Every dollar you donate equals one (1) entry into the sweepstakes. For instance $10 = 10 entries, $25 = 25 entries, etc. You may enter your own self-selected donation amount.
To enter the Sweepstakes without donating to the Charity, visit and log on to the Sweepstakes Website, print the free entry form ("Form"), and complete the Form by hand using blue or black ink. Place the completed Form in an envelope, affix proper first-class postage to each envelope, and mail the envelope to the applicable Sweepstakes Administrator address as indicated on the Form. Each postal entry must be stamped and mailed separately. Your envelope must be postmarked within the Sweepstakes Entry Period and received by the date stated on the Form. Only one Form per envelope will be accepted, but you may enter multiple times by separately mailing additional completed Forms. Each form equals ten entries. You MUST write the name of the Sweepstakes on the back of the envelope. Participation in the Sweepstakes is voluntary and does not require you to purchase anything from Sponsor, nor to make a donation to the Charity. No illegible, incomplete, forged, mechanically reproduced or altered entries will be accepted. All entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be returned.
On or about 4/26/17("Drawing Date"), Sponsor will select the potential Sweepstakes winner ("Sweepstakes Winner") in accordance with these Official Rules. The potential Sweepstakes Winner will be selected by random drawing from all eligible entries received by the Sponsor during the Sweepstakes Entry Period. The potential Sweepstakes Winner will be notified by email or phone on or about 04/27/17 At Sponsor's discretion, a background check ("Background Check") may be performed with respect to the potential Sweepstakes Winner, which such potential Sweepstakes Winner would have to pass in order to receive the prize. By entering the Sweepstakes, entrant agrees to execute and deliver to Sponsor all required authorizations and approvals for said Background Check to be conducted. In the event that a potential Sweepstake Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor may award the applicable prize to an alternate winner as provided herein. The selected Sweepstakes Winner must execute all consents as provided by applicable law. Odds of winning the Sweepstakes prize depend on the number of eligible entries received during the Sweepstakes Entry Period.
VERIFICATION OF WINNER
EACH POTENTIAL SWEEPSTAKES WINNER IS SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR. SPONSOR'S DECISIONS ARE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE ADMINISTRATION, OPERATION, SELECTION OF THE WINNER AND OTHER MATTERS RELATED TO THE SWEEPSTAKES.
