I. General Contest Rules

1. Each contest will have its own rules, depending on what type of game it is. These must be obeyed. However, the rules listed on this page apply to all contests.

2. No entries will be accepted after the deadline.

3. If you want to participate but do not want a prize or to choose a charity, please inform Jenni when you send her your answers. In the event you win, the second-place winner will get the prize.

4. You realize that by choosing a prize, you give Jenni permission to give your shipping address and full name to Amazon.com should you choose a prize from there. Should you choose a CafePress.com prize, then you give Jenni permission to give your snail mail addy to them.

5. In the event of a tie with both people wanting a prize, a brief trivia quiz or similar type of game will be offered. Whoever wins that, wins the prize.

6. Send your answers only to Jenni. Do not send them to our Yahoogroup. Sending them to the group will lead to disqualification.

7. Only members of JABB are eligible for the contests. If you would like to join JABB, please email Jenni.

II. Guidelines Regarding Prizes

1. Amazon.com items are listed in the next section.  For JABB Store and CafePress, the prize amount should not exceed $25 including shipping and handling.  Handcrafted items from the JABB Store have S&H figured into their prices all ready.  For CafePress.com S&H prices, see this page

2. However, exceptions may be made for international winners. This will be dealt with on an individual basis.

3. Jenni has final say on any item being purchased. Please respect that but she will try to be open-minded.

III. Amazon.com Prize List

You may choose one of the following Amazon.com items as your prize:

Touched by an Angel

*If an item is less than $10, I will consider grouping a couple of those items together.

If you do not see an item you expected to be here, it may be that there is limited availability.  I will continue to monitor these lists to ensure as much as possible is listed.

IV. Information about Giving to Charity in Lieu of Prize

This option was mostly made available because I recognize that some people cannot give me their home addresses for any number of reasons. Instead, I will allow them to pick a charity and I will send that organization $25. I will then scan whatever “Thank you” note I get and email it to the winner who chose the charity. People can also choose to give to a charity if they just don’t want a prize. Here are some guidelines.

1. I will not think less highly of anyone because they chose a prize over charity. For all I know they’re giving half their income or more away already! It would be wrong for me to judge.

2. I have a list of charities below that I am comfortable giving to.  However, I will consider others.  Please respect, though, that I may not accept your request.  This is because, ultimately, it is my money being used and I cannot in good conscience send money to a charity I have moral qualms about.  I also have to be comfortable giving my financial information to them. 

V. Charity List

Basically these are ones that TBAA supported during its run and which I think are worthy.  I've also added some that Mr. Dye felt strongly about.
