Now that Labor Day has come and gone, it's time to start settling into fall. You know what that means... It's time to do a clean-out of all the summer promotional products I've been sent!

To win a prize package, just leave a comment. Winners will be picked randomly (I call someone and ask them to pick a random number - that comment wins) and the contest will end Wednesday morning at 9am. Only one entry per person and please make sure you leave a working e-mail address so I can contact you if you win.

We have 3 prize packages to give away this time - 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. Prizes after the jump since there's quite a bit to list.

(I'll bump this back up to the top Tuesday morning so more people can see to participate.)

Today's prize packages include:

bil-ilyssa.jpg1st Place - a "Homos are a Hoot!" t-shirt and 3 bars of Just Bubbly handmade summer themed soap. You can see the t-shirt in the photo to the right; I was wearing mine in Denver when I ran into Projector Ilyssa Fuchs.

Giving a hoot for your fellow queers never looked so good! These playfully provocative t-shirts are helping raise money for LGBT orgs and helping you turn a few heads. I love mine and I wear it all the time now. This is one of my favorite promotional items we've been given.

soap.jpg2nd Place - a Just Bubbly handmade designer soap giftbag.

Just Bubbly is a family-owned and operated business located on the shore of Rockaway Beach in New York. They offer handcrafted, novelty bath soaps, lotions, scrubs, creams, and many other unique bath & body feel good creations. Their soaps meet vegan standards, are hypoallergenic and are never tested on animals.

You'll get two rainbow soapsicles, two sets of flip flop soap, and - my favorite - the fish in a bag soap. Paige and I keep using our fish in a bag soap so we can see how long it takes to get the little fish out; I don't know what we'll do with it once we have it, but we're having fun getting to that point!

3rd Place - Navigaytour travel guide pack and a Just Bubbly gift bag.

Navigaytour LGBT travel guides and the Navigaytour Online are powerful travel resources that help queers find gay-friendly destinations. Included in this set are guides for:

  • Chicago
  • Philadelphia
  • Pittsburgh
  • New Orleans
  • and San Diego

Watch for more contests coming up soon, I've been bombarded with promotional items in the past few weeks and, of course, I'll be giving them away to Projectors. I, literally, have a little section of my home office for promotional items now and it's getting full!

No purchase required to win, but I'll bet each of the companies would appreciate a click to their website! As always, contributors are not eligible to win.

If you're a publicist that would like to pitch items for us to give away on the Bilerico Project, just shoot me an e-mail with a description of your product.

Yay for fancy soap. :)

Woot! Fancy soap indeed. :D

I heart the t-shirt - not to mention the hot guy wearing it!

New reader....
Keep up the good work.
I'm all about free stuff! ;-)

While this doesn't really help your social life, Bil, I suggest a true random integer generator.

You could always try having the person you call use it, so you still get to gossip.

I'm greedy. I want my mitts on some of the soap goodies!

If I win, please sell mine on e-bay and give the money to some homeless TS person who needs it for food and mones. The postage to Australia isn't worth it.

Yummy smelly soap would be fantastic here in Afghanistan (I'm currently deployed)!! The shirt...well...might have to save that to wear at home!

That's some mighty pretty soap.

WOW great stuff! BTW I love this site! Keep up the great work! (does a little brown nosing help my odds of winning?)
