Universuss.org provides a fundraising platform that leverages the power of storytelling and
technology to radically change charitable giving. Among the prizes offered to benefit worthy causes,
some incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunities are donated by influencers and brands.
Universuss.org allows almost anybody (see restrictions below) to enter a sweepstakes and have an
equal chance of winning. Pretty cool, right? And it's legit, too. There are lots of laws in place to
protect our donors and ensure everything's fair. So please enjoy these long, detailed, official rules so
that you have all the information you need before entering any of the sweepstakes or campaigns
advertised on our website.
A few things to note:
You can always enter any campaign for free (although we hope you'll consider showing some love to
the charity offering the Prize—it is, after all, a great cause).
Certain parts of these rules are required by different laws. To make sure you notice them, we use
BIG, SCARY, BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS for those sections.
These official rules apply to every sweepstakes campaign we run—but sometimes we also have extra
information or requirements. In those cases, we publish extra rules on the campaign page. Usually
those rules work with these, but occasionally, we may need to adjust some of these rules for that
campaign. We'll tell you about those changes on the campaign page.
HERE ARE THE BIG, BOLD, SCARY LETTERS:
WHEN YOU MAKE A DONATION, WE GIVE YOU ENTRIES INTO THE DRAWING. IT'S OUR WAY OF SAYING THANKS. CAMPAIGNS MAY ALSO INCLUDE CAMPAIGN PERKS THAT ARE GUARANTEED, IN ADDITION TO PRIZES THAT ARE REWARDED BY A RANDOM DRAWING. NO PURCHASE NECESSARY TO ENTER ANY SWEEPSTAKES.
VOID WHERE OTHERWISE PROHIBITED OR RESTRICTED BY LAW. ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS AND REGULATIONS APPLY.
HOW IT WORKS.
Each raffle is a great big team effort. First, we (Universuss.org., to our friends) work with awesome
companies (we call them each a "Partner" and collectively "Partners"). The products that are in our
sweepstakes/raffles are purchased from our partners. Our sweepstakes/raffles are in no way
sponsored, administered, endorsed, or associated with any companies who we call partners. We use
our partners logo and name on Universuss.org online platform (our "Platform") simply to provide
details regarding the products origin. The luxury products ("Products") are ones that almost anybody
(see restrictions below) can enter to win. The money raised goes to the Charity
You don't have to make a donation to enter a sweepstakes, but if you do, we give you entries as a
HOW TO ENTER A SWEEPSTAKES.
Universuss.org offers different ways to enter a sweepstakes, and it's really easy to do any of the
methods of entry.
To make a donation.
Visit Universuss.org, choose the fundraising campaign that speaks to you and feed your karma by
completing the registration form.
To enter for free.
Go to the campaign page on Universuss.org and scroll down the page. See the "Enter Without
Contributing" section? Click it and fill out the form before the deadline.
Equality matters to us at Universuss.org: we use a system so that entries are treated equally. Each
free entry is automatically assigned 2,000 entries (equivalent to the donation entries you get when
you donate $100).
WHO CAN ENTER A CAMPAIGN?
We love everybody; however, some countries don't love sweepstakes. So, we have to restrict entries
from those countries. This means that most campaigns are open to legal , and most countries
around the world, but they're void in all countries on the United States list of embargoed countries,
as well as in countries where local laws prohibit entry into sweepstakes. We also may have to limit
certain campaigns to specific countries. If we do so, we publish that in special rules on the campaign
Also, to keep things fair, full-time and part-time employees of Universuss.org, , any Charity, or Prize
Provider for the applicable campaign, and members of their household and immediate families (i.e.,
parents, spouses, domestic partners, siblings, and children), are not eligible to enter. Additionally,
any individual that uses a bot, software, or any other codes, instructions or third-party software for
the purpose of automatically entering into a sweepstakes (or multiple sweepstakes) or in any way
that provides an unfair advantage over individuals that enter manually, will be disqualified from the
sweepstakes they entered and all future sweepstakes, subject to Universuss.org sole discretion.
From time to time we may set limitations on how frequently someone can be eligible to win a Major
or Minor prize within a specified time period. In those cases, a "Major" prize is listed as the Grand
Prize of a particular sweepstakes. A "Minor" prize is: i) any prize other than the Grand Prize; ii) any
prize that is awarded in a 'marketing activation sweepstakes' which is defined as a sweepstakes
where the entry method is an entry into a separate sweepstakes (for example, if you enter any
Universuss.org sweepstakes in a specific week, you are also entered for a chance to win $500); or iii)
any prize that is awarded in a 'supplemental sweepstakes' which is defined as a sweepstakes where
the entry method is an entry into a separate sweepstakes (for example, if you enter for a chance to
win a grand prize on a specific week, you are also entered for a chance to win a gift card).
Individuals may not receive more than one Major prize within the same 18 month period. This
limitation applies across all Clubcsc sweepstakes. Individuals may not receive more than one Minor
prize within a particular sweepstakes. For a specific sweepstakes we define Major / Minor prize
differently or revise any prize limitation.
Finally, sometimes your country may allow you to enter a sweepstakes but not allow you to receive
a certain Prize. It's your responsibility to review any specific restrictions before claiming that Prize or
making a donation.
In all cases, campaigns are void where prohibited by law.
WHEN CAN I ENTER A CAMPAIGN?
The start and end date for each campaign is listed on the campaign page.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I WON?
Within 5 business days of raffle close, we'll use an automated random drawing process to draw a
potential winner(s) for that raffle. A confirmation process, which may include a background check,
will then take place to ensure the potential winner meets the legal standards required. Winner
agrees to cooperate fully with Universuss.org in Universuss.org c conducting any background
check(s), which includes providing the information requested by Universuss.org including, but not
limited to, full legal names and addresses. Pending a positive outcome of the confirmation process, a
Universuss.org representative will notify the potential winner via email and/or phone. The potential
winner must respond within the time period designated in the notification, or Universuss.org may
move on to another randomly drawn potential winner. Before confirming a potential winner as the
winner, Universuss.org may require the potential winner to confirm their eligibility. Once that's
done, the potential winner must execute and return all required documents within the time frame
specified by Universuss.org. If you do not execute and return all required documents within the time
frame specified by Universuss.org, you will forfeit the Product and Universuss.org will move on to
another randomly drawn potential winner.
WHAT ARE THE RESTRICTIONS OR CONDITIONS ON A PRIZE?
We describe each Prize at the campaign page and in any special campaign rules, including the
approximate retail value for that Prize.
Some Products have extra restrictions or conditions. We post these in the specific rules for that
We spend a lot of time thinking up the most amazing Products possible, so, unless specified
otherwise in the special raffle rules, Products can't be transferred or substituted, except that we can
substitute a Product of equal or lesser value. Unless otherwise specified in the special raffle rules,
in the event that a portion of a product goes unused, it may not
be substituted, transferred, or redeemed for cash.
And you might not love taxes, but they're your responsibility and you have to pay them.
By accepting the Prize, you agree that we can use your name, address (city and state), photograph,
voice and/or other likeness and Prize information to tell everyone how awesome the Prize was. This
means we can include you in advertising and trade and promotional materials for Universuss.org, in
any form of media (including media that's not yet known), and that we can do so without any
additional compensation. This only applies unless otherwise prohibited by law.
