1st Ever (I think) IL Preppers Giveaway and A Candidate that needs Help

Hi everyone! So, I am a huge supporter of the Constitution. I'm particularly fond of the 2nd amendment, shown above. I set out looking for a nice shirt that would show my support of the 2nd amendment but didn't find anything exactly to my liking. And since I work for folks who print clothing I thought, 'I can make my own shirt!' And, since I'm printing them I thought I'd do a giveaway!! I'm so excited about this!!!

Actually, there are 2 giveaways!!! One will be for a man and one for a woman, but it will be the same shirt style. We're printing the above pictured imprint on Gildan, mens', sport gray shirts on the front middle chest. The ink is black. I will be waiting to print until after I pick the winners so that you can choose your shirt size.

All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on this post or any future posts through Tuesday, March 30th. Just mention that you'd like to be entered in the drawing. If you're entering for you and your spouse you need to tell me that your entering both the mans' and womans' drawing. On March 30th at approximately 5:00pm, I'll pick the winners and then post them here. I'll need to have your shirt sizes within 2 days after that so that I can get the printing done on time. Then, I'll ship the shirts out via UPS.

I'm afraid to say that I will only be able to ship to folks in the contiguous United States, although I don't know how many readers I have outside that area besides Aloha2u from the Hawaii Preppers.

Good luck everyone!

Next, there is a candidate who needs our help. Randy Stufflebeam is running for the IL Senate as a Constitution Party candidate. He needs 25,000 signatures to get on the ballot. If you believe, like I do, that we need to break free from the 2-party system, then helping a 3rd party candidate get on the ballot is a great place to start! This doesn't mean that you have to vote for him in November (even though I hope you'll might want to), but at least you'll be helping give him a chance, and giving the people of IL a choice. Go to http://www.runrandyrun.com/The-Petition.htm to download a petition. You don't have to go knocking door-to-door if you don't want to. But, getting your family, close friends, and co-workers signatures will certainly help. Thanks much!

Prep On!

Use the United States Postal Service Gen. Cheaper in the long run!

And you can then include Hawaii and Alaska (as we are always left out). *sad face*

APN said...

Awesome contest! As much as I'd like to win, skip over my comment so that it can go to someone else. But I will post about this on APN and send some more people your way. Good Job!

Gen-IL Homesteader said...

Kymber, you can certainly be entered if you'd like! I figured Canada wouldn't be too expensive. I really don't know, do you? Golly, I hate leaving people out of stuff....

Aloha, I put a box on the UPS scale at work today with a Hawaii zip code and the price was crazy! (Because I don't agree with how the USPS can take business from private businesses because they can cut prices and cover it with tax dollars, I try not to use them for package shipping. Plus, hubby works for UPS so I want to support them!)I'll check the postal machine tomorrow and see how it looks. If it's not gonna break the bank, I'll enter your name. I imagine it must be annoying to not be eligible for stuff. I felt like such a heel writing it, but I didn't want to have to ship somewhere that was going to be too expensive.

Jason Welin said...

Please enter another Canuck... Thanks!

Fatebekind said...

Great contest! Consider me entered in the T-Shirt giveaway.

Mechanic in Illinois said...

Even though I live in the Communist State of Illinois, I am also a proud supporter of our Constitution and the Second Amendment. I would be honored to be considered for your first contest and to support Randy Stufflebeam for senator. Many of the represenatives from Illinois voted for health care bill and we need make them fear they're going to get the boot next fall. Liberty Strikes Back.

Sgt Survival said...

Great looking design! Sign me up for the contest. Keep up the great work.

Gen-IL Homesteader said...

Jason, fatebekind, mechanic, and Sgt. survival you're all entered!! Good luck!!

SciFiChick said...

Toss my name in there if you would Gen! Gotta love the 2nd amendment.

Gen-IL Homesteader said...

BTW, fatebekind, if you check back here, I'm not sure if you're male or female!
Sgt, I'm assuming you are a man!
Upinak, you're entered too!

Aloha2U said...

Gen-IL, you're crazy-funny and thoughtful thanx but don't worry bout' me. Save the $$$ for your preps girl I got enough shirts where I'm at, and yes the prices to and from to ship here are outrageous! But thank you for your thoughtfulness.

Gen-IL Homesteader said...

Got ya, Scifichick!
