On February 18, we will put all the numbers into a randomizer and the first three numbers it chooses will be the numbers of our winners.

What will the winners get?

We will be giving out three prize packages:

To be able to ship your prize, we will need your delivery address and the size of hoodie you prefer. After we get the details and your confirmation, we will send you your prize within ten working days. The delivery term will depend on your location. We will cover the shipping costs but please note that if any import duties or any other extra fees are applied at your destination, we won’t be able to cover them.
