Giveaway: $100 Gift Certificate from Hello Holiday

Every Friday is giveaway day. Comment to win!

Hello Holiday

I first wrote about Megan Hunt in The $100 Startup. Since then she’s continued to inspire, working on various projects, raising her daughter, and co-founding a new fashion company called Hello Holiday.

Hello Holiday features fun women’s clothing (in great colors!) from emerging designers. In a true “Made in America” enterprise, Megan and her partner ship everything from their small space in Omaha, Nebraska. They’ve agreed to donate a $100 gift certificate valid for anything they sell—no catch. Enter to win and the gift certificate can be yours.

Also, be sure to follow them on Instagram!

What you need to know:

  • Last week we gave away a male amenity kit from Cathay Pacific—this week is all about women’s fashion. Anyone can enter, though—you can either use the gift certificate yourself or give it to someone.
  • This giveaway is available to readers worldwide, and Hello Holiday ships clothing worldwide. Anyone can win!
  • Our cats and biased judges will pick someone on Sunday night at 6pm PST

Enter this week’s giveaway by posting a comment, then check back on Sunday night. We’ll announce the winner and send them the prize!

Update: Comments are now closed. Congrats to Morgan, selected by cats and a random number generator to win the gift certificate! Everyone else, thanks for entering. We’ll have another giveaway next week.
