GIVE SURREAL SWEEPSTAKES OFFICIAL RULES
NO PAYMENT, PURCHASE OR DONATION IS NECESSARY TO ENTER OR WIN AND WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR CHANCES OF WINNING.
How it Works
The Sweepstakes are sponsored by Give Surreal, Inc. 2828 Military Ave, los Angeles CA 90064. The Sweepstakes are governed by U.S. law. Void where prohibited by law.
Unless otherwise stated on the applicable Experience Page or applicable Experience Rules, the Sweepstakes is open to individuals who are legal residents of the 50 United States or District of Columbia who are at least 18 years of age or older.

Each Sweepstakes will begin and end at the dates and times listed on the Experience Page or Experience Rules for that particular Sweepstakes (the "Sweepstakes Entry Period"). All times are measured by Pacific Time (PT) in the United States. The Sponsor's computer is the official time-keeping device for the Sweepstakes. Proof of transmission is not proof of receipt. A “Day” begins at 12:00 AM PT and ends at 11:59 PM PT for each calendar day during each Sweepstakes Entry Period.
How to enter
To be eligible for the Sweepstakes, all entries must be received during the applicable Sweepstakes Entry Period. There are two ways to enter any Sweepstakes:
- Automatic Entry with Donation: Visit the Experience Page for any particular Sweepstakes and follow the instructions to make a donation to the beneficiary charity for that Sweepstakes. Although this could vary per Sweepstakes if it is not stated in the Experience Rules or the Experience Page for an applicable Sweepstakes you will be entitled to 25 entries if you donate the donation amount of USD$50; 5 entries if you donate the donation amount of USD$20.00; and 1 entry if you donate the donation amount of USD$5.00 (“Donation Entry(ies”)). In addition, premiums/rewards may be available (which are not part of the Sweepstakes) for making donations at specified dollar amounts above the applicable donation amount. Details will be listed on
the Experience Page. Visit the Experience Rules for the applicable Sweepstakes you are interested in for all entry details and the Experience prizes. All donations are final and nonrefundable.
Limits for the number of entries will be posted on each Experience Page or the Experience Rules.
- Alternative Method of Entry by Mail Without Making A Donation: To enter any Sweepstakes without making a donation, visit the Experience Page for any particular Sweepstakes and follow the instructions on the Experience Page for that Sweepstakes to locate and print the free Alternative Method of Entry Mail In entry form. Complete the entry form and mail in an
envelope with proper postage to the address listed on the Experience Page or the Experience Rules (“Mail-in Entry(ies)”). Be sure to print the name of the applicable Sweepstakes you are entering on the back of the envelope. Each Mail in Entry must be mailed separately in a separate envelop and must be postmarked during the Sweepstakes Entry Period for the applicable Sweepstakes and received within 7 days of the last day of the applicable Sweepstakes Entry Period. Each Mail-in Entry will be deemed equal to the maximum number of Donation Entries permitted each Day or during each Sweepstakes for each Sweepstakes. No responsibility is assumed for lost, late, incomplete, illegible, or postage due mail or entries.
3. Other Ways to Enter: For certain Sweepstakes, there might be additional opportunities to obtain bonus entries via a “referral” program whereby you can post a unique link in your social media feeds (all of which are free) and receive additional entries into the Sweepstakes for each eligible person who follows your link and enters the applicable Sweepstakes online or potentially other ways to enter (“Bonus Entry(ies”). When this opportunity exists for a given Sweepstakes, it will be listed on the applicable Experience Page or Experience Rules with complete details. You must comply with any terms of service for any social media platform.
Donation Entry(ies), Mail-in Entry(ies) and Bonus Entry(ies) are collectively, “eEntry(ies).” All Entries become the property of Sponsor and will not be acknowledged or returned. Entry materials/data that have been tampered with or altered, or mass entries or entries generated by a script, macro or use of automated devices are void. In the event of a dispute as to the identity of the entrant, any online entry will be deemed submitted by the authorized account holder of the e-mail account provided at the time of entry and/or registration, provided such account holder must still meet the eligibility requirements for the applicable Sweepstakes. The authorized account holder shall be the natural person to whom the applicable email address has been assigned by the Internet access provider, service provider, or other online organization responsible for assigning e-mail addresses for the domain associated with the submitted e-mail address.
The prizes and values available for any Sweepstakes will be listed on the Experience Page or the Experience Rules for that Sweepstakes. Prizes may be awarded by the co-marketing sponsor entity identified on the Experience Page or Experience Rules. The odds of winning in any Sweepstakes depend on the number of eligible entries received for the applicable Sweepstakes.

Winners may be required to execute an Affidavit or Declaration of Eligibility, a Liability Release, and (where legal) a Publicity Release as stated in the Experience Rules. Any travel companion for a trip prize or guest for an event prize must also execute a Liability/Publicity Release (where legal) prior to ticketing for travel or attending an event. Any winner or other person taking part in a trip or event who is a minor under the laws of his/her state of residence (“Minor”) must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian or receive permission from the parent or legal guardian as determined by the Sponsor or will be disqualified. If any eligible potential winner, travel companion or guest is a Minor any required documents must be signed by parent or legal guardian on behalf of the Minor. Sponsor reserves the right to conduct a background check to confirm any potential winner's eligibility and compliance with these rules. By entering, you agree to cooperate reasonably with any such background check. If the prize includes the opportunity to meet a celebrity, attend an event, or participate in any similar activity, or if Sponsor intends to publicize the winner in any way, and if a background check reveals that a potential winner (or travel companion or guest) has engaged in conduct that could damage the reputation or business on any Sweepstakes Entity, as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion, the potential winner may be disqualified. Some events require age requirements which will be stated on the Experience Page or Experience Rules. See Experience Rules for those and other requirements.
Each potential winner will be notified via the contact information provided at the time of entry. The notification will include instructions how to contact Sponsor to provide name, address or other information that may be necessary to complete validation of eligibility and delivery of prize. If a potential winner is a Minor Sponsor reserves the right to require permission from the parent or legal guardian to award the prize to the Minor, or to require that the parent or legal guardian travel with the Minor, as determined by the Sponsor for any given prize. No liability is assumed for any winner notification that is lost, intercepted, or not received by a potential winner for any reason. If a potential winner does not respond to the winner notification (notification will be sent 2 times over a 2 day period), or if an entrant is otherwise found to be ineligible, does not provide required information, or required documentation on time as stated in the Experience Rules or these Official Rules,or if the selected winner cannot accept or receive the prize for any reason, the potential prize winner will forfeit the prize and an alternate winner will be selected from among the remaining eligible Entries time permitting. There will be up to 3 alternate drawings after which the applicable prize will remain un-awarded. The Sponsor reserves the right to modify the notification procedures in connection with the selection of an alternate winner based on time consideration.
