Easy rules ::
• One entry per person per day max.
• We ask that your post/entry is about an environmental action that helps our planet, or about an eco action that helps a specific person, critter or community far or near.
• To enter the same eco poem, song, story, art or video more than once, wait at least a month.
• Your Facebook entry/post should be public so it can inspire others to help the planet.
• The @XOEarth tag should appear in your post, not in the comments.
• It's super fine to have multiple entries in a drawing to increase your odds of winning.
Co-create with us :: If you would like XOEarth Man, Stele or our other eco artists help you with a poem, song, story, art or video that you are creating, feel free to contact us or check out our *Your Song* page .
How winners are chosen ::
To determine the winner of our Rad Perks and Bonus Perks, we assign lotto numbers to your post-entry based on the Facebook timestamp of your post. Then, you will win the Perkz if five out of six of those lotto numbers match the Colorado Lotto's numbers from the second week of the next month. Our Lotto page shows how we do this each month and the odds.
How winners get their Perks ::
Winners will be contacted via Facebook. Perks will be mailed to a winner or be available to be picked up at an XOEarth show, our XOEarth office or at a specified business' location.
Winning entries will also be announced on XOEarth's Facebook page and beyond.
Tagging notes ::
Tags create links that your friends can click on. If a dropdown menu does not appear when making a tag (@ + name), then tagging will not work. Some mobile devices do not allow tagging. If you don't add a business tag, you will still be entered to win awesome XOEarth things. There is a tagging example in the right column.
Biz Perks :: If you add a specific @“Business' Name” tag to your post you will also get a chance to win Biz Perks from the business named in that tag. To help us sign up businesses in your area, contact us. Businesses will be will be asked donate Biz Perks worth between $30 and $90 and will be added to our XOEarth Perks Google map
• Use our XOEarth Perks map to find a business that gives XOEarth Perks, what Perks a business gives, their @"Business' Name" tag, and how many taggers (different people) a business wants before XOEarth does the drawing.
• Look for our XOEarth Biz Perks sign in the windows of participating businesses. [map]
• The number of unique taggers is used to determine when a business will do a drawing. In other words, a tagger who tag a business more than once is counted as one tag for drawing purposes.
• If you are also tagging a business, the @"Business' Name" tag should appear in your post, not in the comments.
• To tag the same business more than once, enter a different eco media or eco work each time, and wait at least a week after the last tag.
• Once the number of valid @"Business' Name" taggers established by the business is received, XOEarth will do a drawing for the Biz Perk. (25 to 75 is the normal range.)
• A random number generator will be used to do Biz Perk drawings.
• The first randomly selected entry for a Biz Perk will be the winner!!
Non Facebook entries ::
If you are a writer, songwriter or artist that is not on Facebook, post your eco creations on your some other public social media network that you belong too, then post a link to it on any relevant XOEarth.org page, along with the @XOEarth tag.

To All Business Owners And Managers,
To offer XOEarth Perks at your business, contact us via Facebook, email or phone with the following info:
• Your business' name on Facebook.
• The Perks you want to give. Most businesses are offering Perks worth between $30 and $90.
• The number of @"Your Business' Name" taggers you want per drawing. Most businesses are asking for between 25 to 75 tags.
[At least half of this number of tags will be unique individuals. In other words, if single individuals tag you more than once, only two of their tags will count towards the number of tags you ask for.]
• An eco action that your business is taking or planning. [green biz ideas]
We will then add your info to our XOEarth Perks map and tell others about your business and your Perks - via Facebook, Twitter, the XOEarth blog and beyond.
