MGA Distribution Ltd. – Tree Drive Contest Rules and Regulations
TREE DRIVE CONTEST RULES AND
MGA Distribution Ltd. has partnered with One Tree Planted to take part in reforestation projects
across Canada. MGA will be holding “Tree Drives”, whereby individuals who contribute to the cumulative purchase of trees to be planted, get the chance to participate in a promotional giveaway as a way of
thanking our customers for giving back.
In order to take part in our Tree Drive contests:
Head to our Facebook Page "Rocky Mountain Reforestation Canada"
and scroll through announcements to find a Tree Drive for the number of trees you would like to make a contribution towards
and a prize you would like to win. The value of each prize will be listed in the applicable
Pick an available spot and post a comment with the number of the available spot
that you wish for your name to appear beside in the comment field below the post.
spots are taken, payment instructions for tree planting will be posted. Contests will receive a
notification in their Facebook “notifications” when payment instructions are posted. Contestants
should ensure that they “turn on notifications” for the applicable post. Contestants are
responsible for monitoring when payment instructions are posted. MGA is not responsible for a
contestant’s failure to miss a payment notification resulting in the disqualification of such
contestant to participate in the Tree Drive. If a contestant fails to make the applicable payment

within twelve (12) hours of the payment instructions being posted, the contestant’s “spot” in
the Tree Drive may be released and become available to new contestants. Payment must be
received in order for an entrant to participate in the draw.
When payment is received by all
contestants, MGA will update the original contest post to include a time for a live Facebook
broadcast to determine the winner.
As such, contestants will be notified as to the time of the live
Facebook broadcast by way of Facebook “notification”. All “main” draws will be held between
11:00 a.m. CST and 9:00 P.M. CST. “Mini” draws may be held outside this period.
The winner will be announced via
live Facebook broadcast held in
from all eligible entries received.
Winners will be determined at random using the randomizer at random.org. Either one or two dice will be rolled
to determine the number of times the name randomizer will reorganize the list. To ensure
authenticity the number one (1) will not be used. Once a number between two (2) and twelve (12) has
been rolled we will use random.org to randomize the entrant’s names the corresponding number
of times rolled. The top three (3) names selected will be
posted on the original post for the said Tree Drive on our Facebook Page. The first name drawn
will have one (1) chance to answer a skill-testing question correctly to claim the prize. If the first
name drawn answers the question incorrectly the second name drawn will have one (1) chance to
answer the skill-testing question. If the second name drawn answers the question incorrectly the
third name drawn will have one (1) chance to answer the skill-testing question.
Any contestant answering a skill testing question must lock-in their answer by way of Facebook
Messenger. MGA will ask if their answer is final and they must respond with a “yes” or “no”. In the event that
all three names drawn are unable to answer the skill-testing question correctly the first name
drawn will still be eligible to win but will be provided with a new skill-testing question and have
one (1) chance to answer the new skill-testing question correctly. The second name drawn will
be provided with the new skill-testing question to answer in the event that the first name drawn is
unable to answer correctly and will be provided with one (1) chance to answer it correctly. The
third name drawn will be provided with the new skill-testing question to answer in the event that
the second name drawn is unable to answer correctly and will be provided with one (1) chance to
answer it correctly. This process will continue until an individual whose name was drawn
answers the skill-testing question correctly. The winner will be notified that they have won by
their name being posted on our Facebook Page and the winner will be tagged in the original post
for the said Tree Drive at the time of the draw date. The winner will have ten
(10) calendar days from notification to accept the prize and collect the prize at a specified
location agreed upon by the parties
or to request that the prize be mailed or shipped to them at a specified
address. Any shipping costs associated with mailing a prize will be borne by the winner unless
otherwise agreed upon between the winner and MGA Distribution Ltd.
Winners of a “Mini” will have up to twenty-four (24) hours from the time of Facebook notification to
claim their spots on the “Main” draw.
All contests held in
combination with "Tree Drives" require NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. In order to obtain a
free entry to participate in a "Tree Drive” giveaway a written request must be sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org which request will include ten (10) pictures of themselves enjoying
