registered but waiting for points:


I agree to the rules and regulations of the contest as outlined below:

Rules and Regulations:

** I understand that I must provide Essentialmom with PROOF that I have performed the actions I am claiming for points. Example: I will cc on any announcements or emails I send to friends, businesses, etc. on Essentialmom’s behalf.  I will either send a screen shot of my facebook page or tag Essentialmom if I do a post on my page so that Essentialmom knows I have done so (a follow up notice email might help too)

I understand the following: Essentialmom is not a big corporation. It is one mom sitting in her home office. She will try her very best to keep track of numbers, points, and details…and will be as fair as is possible in keeping track of it all. I promise not to yell at, talk about behind her back, or be mad at her if she makes a mistake.

I understand that this contest is for FUN. I will not complain, sue, or otherwise talk badly about EssentialMom should I lose.

Please submit information for Westchester, NY only.

I agree that I will submit only information that I have permission to submit. i.e.: I will only give my friends’ names, email address or other information if I ask for permission from said friend first. Essentialmom does NOT support spam and fully complies with best practices in communications.  I DO NOT want you to share your lists, your friends’ information, or any other information that you do not have permission to share.  I just want you to TELL your friends about us because you think they will LIKE us!

If you email or sign up and I don’t get back to you immediately, please be patient.  If you filled in the form, you are all set and I will start counting!

GAME ON!!!!!

** In the interest of fair play, PR company folks should not get points for just sending me items they are actively marketing.  You just have way too unfair an advantage! Please play fair.  Any personal business, emails, facebook comments, friend sharing, etc. is fine for points.  I will have to trust you to be honest and fair.
