Post Updated: Grand Opening Contest!

Congratulations to Sarah and LindaFriendly who won the contest! Don't worry, there will be more!

I rolled out the welcome mat and you came right in! To thank you for signing up during the Buildabearville BLOG grand opening week I am holding a contest as follows:

All registered users who post 50 helpful posts by June 7 will be entered into a drawing. First place prize is your choice between a Hello Kitty or a $25 gift card to BuildABear Workshop. Second place is the prize the first place winner did not choose. Both of these prizes were very thoughtfully donated by Buildabear Workshop Inc.

If you elect to not receive the prize you have won by shipment, which requires a name and address of parent or member over 18, I will pm the animal ID and Key Code to you here on this forum for 1) Hello Kitty or 2) any bear you choose, and name, with the $25 gift card. I will purchase the bear for you, name it for you, provide the codes and bear boutique receipt code and donate the bear itself to our local Children's hospital.

Contest rules follow:
  1. Posts in the Trading Post do not count towards the 50 posts.
  2. The 'helpful' posts must contribute to the forum community and have useful content or conversation.
  3. Once you reach 50 posts add your name to this thread and your posts will be reviewed.
  4. If eligible they will be marked 'eligible' by a moderator or myself. If more content is required you will receive a pm notification so that you have the opportunity to post more.
So get posting and have fun!!!

Wow, this sounds great! The prizes are pawsome! I never thought you'd actually provide real life prizes. I'll try my very best to get fifty helpful posts. Does it count if I post in the Aloha forum?

I'm almost at 50 posts, and it's just day one! Great idea Freya-- I hope I win! I'd love to take my niece into BAB on my day off, she gets so excited seeing "Aunt Lissy" make her a bear

Smile Yay!

This contest is so generous! I can't believe we actually get a prize in real life! I never seem to have good luck in draws, but that can always turn around! Hopefully this is when it does! Thanks so much Freya!
I have reached 50 posts, I hope they qualify!

Arrow To Torinightingale:

I am also new to the forum, but I can tell you a little.
This forum is mostly about Buildabearville. And aren't you already a member?
You can:
Post about your party, join a team, role play, chat.
You can also send PMs (Private Messages).
Most importantly is fur you to have fun!

If you have any more things to clarify, I think you can ask freya!

Happy chatting and have fun!

P.S. (I think I am your friend on BABV.)

This is like killing two bird with one stone. This is helping you and also a helpful post (for the contest) !
