Contest: A Killarney Care Package [Updated]

Update: Erica Chan from Chicago is the winner! I know I wrote a lot in anticipation of my exciting trip to Killarney, so much so, that it may have bored or annoyed some readers. Planning a trip to Ireland is no easy task, nor is it cheap, but it is something I have wanted to do for almost 20 years, and this year was really the ideal time to do it. However, while I was in Killarney, Ireland, a place that our favorite actor lived for most of his life, I felt compelled to collect a few things that a Fassinator would enjoy having, and create a Killarney Care Package and have a contest! As you can see in the picture below, this is all that one lucky winner will receive -

From Killarney, you will get:

  • The Spring 2012 Irish Tatler Man magazine with Michael on the cover, the images and the article inside is a MUST HAVE! I bought two issues, one for me and one for this contest.
  • An 'I Killarney' t-shirt, size (S) men. Sorry, these were the last two at a steep discount. I got the other for me.
  • A Killarney magnet
  • Shamrock shortbread cookies
  • Made in Ireland Dairy Cream Fudge (I ate one whole bag in two days, this second bag was for me, but I'm making a sacrifice in donating it).
  • Several Killarney post cards
  • A Killarney city map from the fancy tour office in town
  • And from London, the Friday, June 1st edition of the Metro magazine which has Michael on the cover from the Prometheus premiere. And on pages 51-52, an exclusive interview with him!
What do you have to do to win this Killarney care package? Firstly, and most importantly, I can only send this package to a US or Canadian address. If you live in Belgium, for instance, but have a cousin's ex-wife's, sister's, babysitter who has a US address you can use, then that's fine. I'm sorry, but due to the shipping costs with fans all over the planet, I cannot guarantee that I can ship it overseas. Secondly, just send an email titled 'FF Contest' with your full name and City, State information to (email removed) and I will randomly select a winner. I will add all names to a basket, shake it up and pull out one name. It's that simple.

Be fast on this because I will select and announce the winner on Friday, June 8th at 9am EST, so please send an email by the cut off time of 1am EST on June 8th!

This is just my way of saying that I was thinking of all of you while I was on holiday, and I want to share a little piece of Killarney with you.

My piece of shit outdated computer at work won't allow me to update the blog article to include the update that Canadian addresses are allowed in this contest along with US addresses.

Your great Simone! Unfortunately I can't participate but I find it very thoughtful of you to bring all those great stuff to give away.

Simone said...

thank you Hupsakeek!

I realize that the majority of active readers and participants here at FF and Pinterest are from outside of the US. But monies are tight for me right now after my holiday trip, and I can't afford to pay to ship this package overseas. That's the only reason.

I appreciate your response. I hope to do something special again one day and will definitely be in the position to include Fassinators from other countries.

This is such a nice giveaway Simone. WOW! I hope everyone who is able will enter and that you get a nice turn out. I’m not sure I’d want to give up all those cool things you’ve got in your care package prize!
