Day 2: Unlock the Prize Giveaway (UNLOCKED)

Greetings, and welcome to Day 2 of my Unlock the Prize Anniversary Giveaway. This is a giveaway where everyone wins, if enough entries have been received. Today, we will try to unlock the Day 1 Prize Pack. By doing the various options in the Rafflecopter app below, you will help us reach the target number of entries.
Yesterday, we reached our goal SUPER fast. So, I’m making it a little harder today. Today, we need 350 entries by 5 P.M. Central Standard Time. How can this be done? Well, you have to enter and you have to spread the word to all of your friends so that they can enter too!

When you enter, please make sure that you are using a working email. One thing that I did not mention yesterday that I want to make sure of today is that you cannot use multiple email addresses for your entries. If this happens, none of your entries will count and they will be removed from the Rafflecopter app.
I also have to address another thing. I really hate having to say this…please do what you say you will do. If it asks you to follow someone, please do it! I thought that the honor system would work, but some entries yesterday were false unfortunately. So, I will definitely verify the entries. If you failed to do one of the entries yet said that you did, you will not receive the prize pack. I hate to do it that way, but I think that it is the only fair way to go about it.

Sorry to sound so stern, but I want to be fair to everyone. This is my first time doing a giveaway like this, and I’d hate for someone not to visit here again because they thought things were being handled unfairly.
Okay, I’m off my soapbox now!

If the Day 2 Prize Pack is unlocked, I will send a message to the email that you used in the Rafflecopter app. The email will provide you with a link to download the prize pack. The pack will be available until midnight, Central Standard Time.

Please note that the Rafflecopter will end and be removed once the number of needed entries have been reached. Make sure that you’ve entered your email before time runs out, or you will not receive the prize pack.
