Hello Kitty Nori Punch Giveaway

This is my second post in my continuing long-shot attempt to win a contest to blog about the Vancouver Winter Olympics and in the process, hopefully help out a good cause.

This contest is for a Hello Kitty Nori punch courtesy of my wife (who incidentally has been greatly encouraged by acquaintances who say that there are quite a few places to buy Hello Kitty crap in Vancouver — which has me thinking that maybe winning isn’t going to be the escape from Hello Kitty Hell that I had first imagined…):

The Olympic contest is to help support and spread the word about lesser known athletes participating in the Olympics games. I decided to participate by helping get the word out to people by creating Facebook fan pages.

Entering this contest is easy β€” simply become a Facebook fan of Tugba Karademir, a Turkish ice-skater who has struggled to find coaches and sponsors when many top ice-skaters are treated like rock stars. If you have the chance (although not part of the contest), also leave a message of encouragement and I’ll make sure that Tugba reads it.

After becoming a fan, leave a comment letting me know that you have and that will be your entry. I will have a random number generated for the comments that qualify left below. The person’s comment that matches the number will receive the Hello Kitty nori punch.

The contest starts now and will end at 11:59 pm eastern (10:59 pm central, 9:59 pm mountain and 8:59 pm pacific) on Sunday January 24th. Open to anyone living anywhere in the world.

Update: For all those that entered the first contest and became fans of Clyde Getty (and if you haven’t, please do), he slightly injured himself doing a triple layout back flip in competition. I think he would greatly appreciate a message of encouragement for a quick recovery. Please consider doing so.

Update 2: Congratulations to Carol Browne who won the ice tray in the previous giveaway.

Update 3: There were 94 official entries in this contest and the randome number generated was 46 making Harriet the winner. Congratulations.

  1. Oh now you know I had to enter and become a fan of an ice skater (I always liked the winter olympics better, just not the idea of cold). Learning about who’s going to be at the Olympics AND a chance to steal something from your wife that’s HK, oh it’s on. πŸ™‚

  2. wow shes so pretty! and i absolutely love figure skating!! shall keep an eye out for her, i became a fan and the nori punch is too cute ^^

  3. I don’t make nori, so I’ll increase the odds for everyone else. but I’ll try to remember to fan him.

    Too bad you’re not from my city. I had free tickets to the ice skating championships (the company I work for did all the US Skating Championships gear) I didn’t end up going. I could have given them to you! LOL.

  4. I just want to tell you NOT to let your wife anywhere near Richmond, BC (It’s right next to the Vancouver airport.) 99% of Vancouver’s Asian population live there and Yohan Mall is almost 90% Hello Kitty! The other 10% is Hello Kitty rip offs.

  5. Yay! A Turkish figure skater? Imagine. I’m her newest fan. But don’t include me in this draw, because I won the last one. I don’t want be greedy or anything. Oh, my friend is going to be so happy to hear from me with this news!

    Let me tell you, there are plenty of places to pick up Hello Kitty stuff around town. You can start off in Metrotown in Burnaby and if you really want go all out, take the Canada Line to Aberdeen Mall. Your wife will LOVE that!

  6. i became a fan please pick me im a hello kitty fanatic but im only 14 so i cant buy that much of her stuff since i dont get an alowance=(

  7. Yay for giveaways for a good cause! *^-^*

    just became a fan of Tugba (and I’m convinced she’s a long lost twin for one of my college friends… scary resemblance!!)

  8. Consider her fanned! I love ice skating, I love underdogs, and I love bento! there couldn’t be a more perfect combo! You’re doing something awesome, keep it up!

  9. I’m a fan, and left a message on her site, because her skating is wonderful. I am looking forward to seeing more of her during the Olympics.

  10. I’ve never entered one of your contests before. Normally I despise the evil one, but I think I might actually be able to put these punches to good use. The shapes are vague enough I’m sure they could be used to create something else. Mu hu wa ha ha! If that fails, I can give them to one of the language or culture clubs at my university for use in making the sushi they sometimes sell at their fundraisers.

    So, anyway, I became a fan. This is my entry. Thank you very much.

  11. I have never intered into any of your conteast before.
    I have been a HelloKitty fan since i was 3 years old.
    I just lost most of my HelloKitty colection in a fire. and i am just tryinh to bild back up.
