3. How To Enter.
(a) Entry Via Donation to The Slow Factory Foundation
Go to www.JanSport.com/nicolemclaughlin. Complete the official entry form with your name, email address and other required information. Be sure to select the Nicole McLaughlin item you’re interested in and would like to win as a prize (if your entry is selected in the applicable random drawing and you are thereafter confirmed as the prize winner of such random drawing; see Rule 5 below). The Nicole McLaughlin items consist of one of each of the following: backpack; chair; bra; shoes; shorts; vest. Make a minimum personal (i.e., not on behalf of a company) donation of Five Dollars ($5) to The Slow Factory Foundation, via credit card/debit card. (Provided that you make this minimum donation, the amount of the donation will not affect your ability to enter the Sweepstakes or your odds of winning the selected item prize.)
YOU (IF A MINOR, YOU AND YOUR PARENT/LEGAL GUARDIAN) ARE STRONGLY ADVISED TO REVIEW THE SLOW FACTORY FOUNDATION’S WEBSITE AT https://slowfactory.foundation TO FULLY UNDERSTAND THE NONPROFIT’S MISSION BEFORE MAKING A DONATION.
Sponsor makes no representation, warranty or guarantee of any kind that persons participating via donation entry will be eligible to receive any tax deduction or other charitable benefit in conjunction therewith. The availability of any such charitable benefit is a matter solely between entrant (or his/her/their parent or legal guardian) and The Slow Factory Foundation (and, the only representations made in this regard are those of The Slow Factory Foundation.) Entrant (or his/her/their parent or legal guardian) is thereby cautioned to consult with his/her/their accountant or other tax professional BEFORE seeking to claim any charitable benefit relative to Sweepstakes participation via donation to The Slow Factory Foundation. Without limiting the foregoing, entrant (or his/her/their parent or legal guardian) understands and agrees that Sponsor is not acting as a professional fundraiser, charitable solicitor or otherwise collecting funds for or on behalf of The Slow Factory Foundation: AT ALL TIMES, THE ONLY PARTIES TO THE DONATION TRANSACTION ARE THE ENTRANT, ON THE ONE HAND, AND THE SLOW FACTORY FOUNDATION, ON THE OTHER.
(b) Entry By Email.
To enter without making a donation to The Slow Factory Foundation, send an email with your name, state of residence, zip code, age and the corresponding name of the Nicole McLaughlin item that you’d like to win as a prize to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include “JanSport x Nicole McLaughlin Sweepstakes: Free Entry” in the subject line of the email. (A given email may only specify one  choice of item.)
4. Entry Restrictions.
(A) If entering via donation as per Rule 3(a), receipt of donation entry is contingent upon The Slow Factory Foundation’s confirmation that underlying credit card/debit card transaction was authorized and successful. Rejection of transaction for any reason voids any corresponding donation entry.
(B) Be careful in selecting a Nicole McLaughlin item because once made, the choice of item cannot be changed absent extraordinary circumstances and only with the consent of Sponsor (which may be granted or withheld in its sole discretion and without liability of any kind). Any entry which omits an item selection is void and will not be accepted.
(C) If entering via donation as per Rule 3(a), no entry will be received if donation is made in any way other than via the provided link on www.jansport.com/nicolemclaughlin. Without limitation, donations made to The Slow Factory Foundation on a monthly recurring basis will not result in entry.
(D) Receipt of an entry may be acknowledged (including for entry via donation as per Rule 3(a), via confirmation of donation transaction), but any such acknowledgment shall not constitute any representation as to Sweepstakes eligibility, notice of selection of entrant as a potential winner, nor is it otherwise binding upon Sponsor under any legal theory.
(E) Proof of submitting entry does not constitute proof of receipt of same or proof of entry in the Sweepstakes. The preceding includes proof of making donation for entry via Rule 3(a) and proof of sending email for entry via Rule 3(b).
(F) Use of automated or programmed means of participation in the Sweepstakes is prohibited and will result in automatic disqualification of entrant with ALL his/her/their entries being declared void. (If such disqualified entrant entered via donation as per Rule 3(a), the donation will NOT be refunded.)
(G) If a person enters by using a mobile device, standard message and data rates and/or wireless Internet access charges may apply. Entrant may be charged by his/her/their wireless carrier in conjunction with Sweepstakes entry. Entrant is cautioned to review his/her/their wireless carrier's pricing plan BEFORE participating in the Sweepstakes; if you are a minor in your jurisdiction of residence, your parent/legal guardian should review the wireless carrier’s pricing plan before you enter the Sweepstakes. Wireless Internet access may not be available in all areas and is not available on all mobile devices.
