We are off to a good start. Thank you for all your comments on the Day 1 post – I am happy to announce the winner now: The New York photo book will go to Violet. Congratulations!!! Please confirm your address and the photo book will go on its way as soon as it arrives here. And thank you to all of you for taking part
(and for many lovely comments – the reward I have shamelessly manipulated you into giving to me 😉 ) For the draw protocol click the “Seal of Approval” (right)
At this point, I would also like to extend my thank yous to two lovely fellow fans of ours who reached out and reacted to my announcement of The Twelve Days of Christmas: Unprompted and independent of each other, Hariclea and Perry have offered to support my
Christmas fandom love project. Perry is contributing to postage costs, while Hariclea is going to sweeten some raffles with special additional presents that she will send to the respective winners herself. Thank you to both of you ❤️.
Now on to Day 2. I just realised that today’s item really ought to be raffled off right at the beginning of the run of my Twelve Days of Christmas – while there is still time. In monetary value, this gift means not much, and funnily enough it is a mass product of which there are millions and millions out there – but yet, I believe that they may be hard to come by for some fans, and thus…
Day 2 presents you 2 Royal Mail stamps to the value of £ 2.10
Thanks to a little interview on the Today Show on Monday, we know that Mr A is going to be in England for the holidays. Since his fan correspondence is still “a family affair”, this may mean that Richard will be looking through the backlog of autograph requests and fan mail, soon. A great opportunity to get your own letter and request in, if you ask me. According to reliable information via RAnet, you have better chances of receiving a signed photo back if you enclose
- A large stamped addressed envelope (C4 size = 229mm x 324mm = 9 inches x 12.8 inches).
- If you live in the UK a “Large” stamp is required.
- For those outside the UK, please send the postage equivalent of £2 sterling.
Call me your enabler! (Thanks to Hariclea, btw, who procured the stamps for me a while back, not knowing what I was going to do with them.)
So, for a chance to win the stamps, leave a comment on this post. The raffle is open for the next 23 hours and finishes at 7am GMT tomorrow, December 15, 2016.
To sweeten the deal
and fatten the package, Mr Thornton is sending a little chocolate love, too.
This raffle prize is ready to go, so as soon as the winner is picked and I have the winner’s address, the package will go on its way to her, anywhere in the world, postage and packing covered.
