Woohoo! It’s Hawaii Contest Time Again!
We had so much fun with Go Visit Hawaii’s first reader reward contest, that we had to offer another one. I had asked for input on what you’d like and have tried to fulfill those requests. I also picked up some other items that I found on my recent trip to Hawaii. So, for you, I hand picked these items and lovingly carried them nearly 5,000 air miles back to the mainland.
Here’s what’s included in this Hawaiian themed giveaway:
- Iz’s award winning “Facing Future” CD. I selected this based on the popularity of the post with the YouTube video of Iz’s famous song of “Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World”. This CD includes that song.
- A copy of “Hawaii This & That” which is a book that answers visitors’ questions about Hawaiian history, culture, weather, food and more.
- A 2008 calendar with scenes from Hawaii.
- A pineapple scented soy candle. I found this candle at the Gifts of Aloha shop on Lanai. This candle is very special because it is handmade by my blog friend at Hawaii Vacation Gifts. Thanks to Lace for the scented candle suggestion.
- A wooden mini-surfboard book mark per Matthew’s request.
- Three types of leis, per Laura’s request. There is an edible macadamia nut lei, a silk flower lei, and two shell leis. Matthew requested leis, too, specifically the shell type.
- A dashboard swaying hula girl figurine.
- Hawaiian shirt shaped sticky note pad.
To win this prize pack, all you have to do is be a subscriber by email or by RSS and contact me with a secret message. Just to make the contest just a bit more fun, I’m going to be issuing more than one secret message periodically between now and November 15th. Each new secret message that you send me can result in an entry. So, you can have one entry for each new secret message. I will put a secret message (at the bottom of a post) that only subscribers will see. I will include the messages randomly sometime between now and November 15th. When you see the message, copy and paste it into this contact me form along with your name and e-mail address. I will then include your entry into the random drawing.
As a thank you to the nice Bloggers who blog about the contest, they will get an entry for blogging about the contest.
Good luck and a big Mahalo for being a subscriber!
Contest updated on October 17th to include multiple entries.
thanks for the mention, great prizes
of course we will be entering again
NOV 15th is a long ways away though 🙁
maybe too long… did you mean oct? =x
Matthew – I’m so glad your be entering again! I selected Nov 15th to allow people plenty of time to discover Go Visit Hawaii. If you are worried about people forgetting to look for the secret message, I’ll make sure to give a “suggestion” of when to look out for the secret message.
Sweet! I want the whole shbang. I love that Iz cd.
Thanks for making all of this so much fun.
Aloha Maui Girl and mahalo for commenting! I’m glad you like the prizes! I love that Iz CD, too!
just that hosting a contest and having a deadline two months in advance could hurt your chances of success. Even a month can stretch it. Bloggers have short attention spans, including myself
Matthew – I appreciate the advice….but don’t worry, I’ll provide several gentle reminders for those bloggers and readers that have short attention spans. 🙂
Thank you for mentioning my request for leis! That is so neat! And I need to win this prize… it ends two days after my birthday! Come on baby, Momma needs a new lei (or three!) lol! That CD would be very cool too as well as the other goodies. Don’t you just want to go ahead and send me it all now?! lol
Yahoo! Another contest!! What fun prizes!
Mahalo for hosting!
@ Laura – LOL! The Iz CD is great! 🙂
@ Lissete – I’m glad you like the prizes. Have you already gone on your trip to Hawaii or is that coming up?
Great giveaway as usual!
Thanks for offering up my one of our handmade soy candles in the prize package. The fragrance is “sunset luau” which is a medley of pineapple and other exotic tropical fruits and coconut with a bit of musky night air.
I have linked to your contest with my blog post for today!
@ Kailani – I’m glad you like the giveaway. I really have fun picking the items.
