If Mr. Kate, Inc.’s channel http://www.youtube.com/themrkate gets to 1 Million subscribers, we are giving one subscriber to Mr. Kate, Inc’s YouTube channel a room transformation valued at $10,000.00 USD. For the avoidance of doubt, the $10,000.00 USD value will not in any way involve a cash payment. The total award will be made up of products placed into the room, and labor and transportation involved with putting the products into your space all with a total suggested retail value of $10,000.00 USD.
For every 100,000 subscribers we add up until 1 million total subscribers, we will be giving $1,000.00 USD to charities that help those in need find housing. Charity, or charities will be decided at Mr. Kate’s sole discretion at the time of each donation.
To be eligible to win the $10,000 giveaway entrant must live in the Continental United States.
To pick the winner of the $10,000 giveaway we will first select 10 finalists from the pool of current subscribers to Mr. Kate’s YouTube channel who are based in the Continental United States and over the age of 18. Because we will be filming an episode for Mr. Kate’s channel with the final winner we will first ask a series of questions to the finalists to better determine the feasibility of filming with them and filming in their space, and from there we will pick a final single winner from those 10 finalists, based on a number of factors including but not limited to, the creative potential of the episode and the feasibility of being able to a produce an episode for Mr. Kate with that person and in their space. If Mr. Kate, Inc. does not find a suitable winner in the first 10 finalists picked, the process will be repeated until a suitable winner is selected.
