Previous Giveaway Disclosure

Sunday, October 2, 2011

At the end of July, blog readers may remember a recycled banner purse giveaway c/o SEEN. A blog post competition was written in good faith that the company would send the purse to the competition winner.

Sadly, two months later, the winner has not received the purse, and the company fails to make contact. It is my obligation, therefore, to inform Recycled Fashion readers.

All content and links to the giveaway and company involved have been removed from Recycled Fashion as a result.

As an apology to the giveaway winner, Amanda, she will be receive one of my own personal handmade zipper brooches in the mail.

This is a disappointing situation, and one we hope not to experience again.

That's terrible Erica, I had a similar situation with an online competition, it seems some folks just want the publicity and have no intention of honoring the prize, shameless.

Well done on how you've handled this - at least you have some integrity. I'm afraid this happens relatively frequently, I enter a lot of competitions (outside of blogs) and have found that even 'big' companies can be dreadful when it comes to honouring what's been promised.
