Giveaway - Canon PowerShot A800 Digital Camera

Welcome to my very first giveaway!



I wanted to do this giveaway to thank all my viewers and readers for being so supportive of my Youtube channel and blog. I did not expect to "meet" so many amazing people and I truly appreciate all your comments, questions, and suggestions. The prize is a little unconventional because it doesn't really have anything to do with beauty but it is related to something that is near and dear to my heart... photography. :)



My husband and I won a Canon PowerShot A800 Digital Camera in last year's Princess Margaret Cancer Centre Welcome Home Sweepstakes. We don't have a need for another digital camera because we already each have our own so we decided to give it away to one of my viewers/readers. This is an entry-level, no frills digital camera and I believe the value is around $100. If you don't need a basic digital camera, please feel free to enter the giveaway anyway... and if you win, you can gift the camera to someone who needs one. :)



The box shows a silver camera but there is a label on the side indicating a black camera is included inside.





Here are the details about the giveaway:

1) Giveaway is open to residents of Canada and the U.S. You must have a Canadian or U.S. mailing address for me to send the prize to you.
2) You must be 18 years of age or older or have parental permission to enter.
3) All entries will be validated. Any ineligible entries will be deleted.
4) Winner will be selected on October 28, 2012.
5) Winner will have 72 hours to claim the prize before another name is selected.

If you are interested, please enter the giveaway via the Rafflecopter widget below. You can gain multiple entries if you follow me on other types of social media - all the different ways to gain additional entries are also shown below.

UPDATED TO ADD: Thank you to everyone who has entered thus far... I am really happy with the response to this giveaway! :) I want all your entries to be eligible so I just want to provide a reminder to please ensure you follow the instructions included in each option to enter, for example:

A) Your comment on this blog post should include something (anything) you want to tell me about yourself.
B) Your comment on my Youtube channel should include one of your favourite things to photograph.
C) Your comment on my Facebook page should include a suggestion on what other videos you would like to see from me.


Thank you for your support and good luck! :)

  20. great giveaway, wow! and actually exactly what I need since my husband insisted on buying a camera that I hate with a passion and never use. I've been wanting to get one for myself that is more my taste (no fanciness, not too big, simple to use) so. Thing about me is that we lost a digital camera in the dessert in 2009 in egypt. lol

  43. I'm redoing my comment : Thank you for this awesome giveaway, I always end up thinking "I buy a digital camera next time" so I don't have any. I like taking picture when people don't expect it, I feel like you get the best result that way. I've studied art a bit, but mostly litterature. I've had different blog overtime and I'm thinking about vlogging someday.
