Do you want to win a COo.oOL prize?
I'm giving away a $67 Amazon Gift Card and a signed copy of my book, Survivor: One Man's Battle with HIV, Hemophilia, and Hepatitis C at the end of March. March is Hemophilia Awareness Month, and I decided to run a contest/giveaway to support Hemophilia Awareness, give back to my friends, and gain followers at the same time!
It's easy to enter and I will draw one lucky winner from the contestants on March 31, 2013. In order to qualify you need to like my Facebook fan page (if you already do, you're halfway there) and share the original post from my FB fan page. Another way to enter is to follow me on Twitter (again, you're halfway there if you already do), and then Tweet a link to this blog (so, that I know you're entering) per the instructions below. If you do both FB and Twitter you will get two entries and chances to win.
Note: You must enter by 11:11 p.m. EST on Friday, March 29, 2013. Also, see the "fine print" below for contest rules.
Steps to enter the contest
1. Goto and Like www.facebook.com/VaughnFRipley
2. From my FB fan page, "share" my original post about this contest.
1. Follow me on Twitter at: twitter.com/vripley
2. Tweet this (without the quotes): " I followed @vripley and entered his $$$ giveaway via http://hivlongevity.com/2013/02/08/giveaway-for-hemophilia-awareness-month "
I will add your name once for the FB fan page like and share and once for the Twitter follow and tweet. So, you get twice as many chances to win if you do both FB and Twitter.
That's really all there is to it!
Also, please checkout the National Hemophilia Foundation Website for more information about hemophiliacs and Hemophilia Awareness Month.
Signed, your easy bleeding friend and compatriot,
