I sent mine in with 2-3 minutes before midnight lol. Sorry. I wasn't going to do it because I suck at essays, I won't win, and the prize is so awesome that I didn't want to stress over it lol, but then I thought - duh! You guys might be able to use some of the stuff people write to help Veganism directly or indirectly! I apologize in advance to whom ever has to read it all lol, and again, a million thank yous for this incredibly selfless offer!! <3

Mina, don't be so hard on yourself, girl!! And you are absolutely right: Whether or not you win the prize package (we are still reading the entries), we REALLY need the feedback! It will help us in the development of our future contests, give our generous prize sponsors/contributors some feedback and gratitude, and help out our website, too! Our top priority is always to promote veganism through health and fitness. THANK YOU SO MUCH for submitting your essay!!!!!

Hi everyone,


I haven't forgotten about your prizes, I'm just waiting on income to come in so I can afford to ship these. I get paid on May 15th and I'll ship immediately after that payment comes in. I have the bonus prizes set aside for all the essay winners and I'll have these out in the mail within the next 3 weeks.


Thanks for your patience!


All the best,

One more week until these ship out! I get paid on the 15th and I'm making this a top priority.


Thank you all so much for your patience. It has been a bit of challenge to fund this program, but once these ship, that will conclude the 6-month process.


I accumulated a lot of great prizes recently, so we'll go out with a bang!


Thanks again.


Have an awesome week!
