We just passed our 1 year mark since we sold everything and left on this family adventure around the world! Since the beginning, it has been our family goal to pay it forward and share the blessings that we enjoy most in life. At first we simply shared unique candies from far off countries. Then, we were able to provide 7 people with the life changing gift of Lasik eye surgery. Now, we are going to return to some of our favorite destinations from the past year and invite other families to join us! Next stop?? A free trip to Dubai!!

Official Rules, Terms, Requirements, and Kindness

Here is the fine print for people who like to dive deep into rules and also to keep us, The Bucket List Family and the wonderful individuals and companies we collaborate with perfectly safe from drama and legal issues.

- YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and all other networks involved are automatically and completely released by each entrant or participant. The promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed or administered by, or associated with, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram or any other network involved.

- All members of the family must currently have valid passports. No purchase necessary of anything to participate. To be considered for the trip you don't officially need to complete any of the steps or do anything. This is just a gift. Not a contest. Nothing is required of you. But remember, the galaxy favors those who put forth special effort.   

- If you are unable to fill out our google form, you can email us at jessica@thebucketlistfamily.com or you can mail us a letter to whichever country we are currently residing. That is an alternative way to participate. Check. 

- We will begin receiving and reviewing entries in October 2016 and we hope to complete this collaboration about 3 weeks later. Life on the road with 2 young children can be crazy so schedules change all the time. No guarantees on our exact schedule. These dates are simply our hopes and plans. We are simply trying to do something good and we are unsure of what obstacles may come up along the way or what will be best for this well intentioned act of kindness. We thank you for your patience and understanding and smiles. 

- More than a giveaway, this is simply a gift from Garrett and Jessica and Dorothy and Manilla Gee. Each of us are free from responsibility and are not liable for any problems that may arise. Manilla doesn't have any responsibilities or chores at all because he just turned 2. As we are currently traveling around the world, no solid home address is currently available. But a really solid email address is jessica@thebucketlistfamily.com.

- The odds of receiving this gift will depend on the amount of names and stories submitted. If you do not receive the gift, that is okay, you should not be angry or take any negative actions. Instead, we suggest being happy for the individuals that did receive the gift. Never take legal action. "Have courage and be kind." - Mother of Ella

- The gift offered will hopefully be chosen before November 2016. The chosen will be notified by email or Snapchat, or Instagram, or telephone, or maybe in person. Whatever is best and makes the event most special and memorable for all parties involved. 

- We are human. Therefore, there is a chance that this text and or gift will have errors or typos or mistakes and maybe even legal loopholes. The Bucket List Family has the right to fix any typos or mistakes or cover any loopholes or do anything necessary that will keep them and other parties involved legally safe and free. By participating in any way, you give The Bucket List Family compassion and understanding that they only want to do good and they do not wish harm or drama or even disappointment on anyone. By participating, you agree to not take any legal or negative action on The Bucket List Family or any of its individuals. Please be nice. 

Thank you for reading these very official rules. You just read a lot of words that were both technical and offical. We hope you have a good day.
