As you all know … I had a Coachella swag bag give away contest featuring all of these loverly items …
Because of the popularity of the post with all of the shares in social media, I was also given these Beats By Dre wireless headphones in addition to give away …
The contest had 3 rules:
1) To enter you have to perform a random act of kindness
2) You had to declare which product you wanted and what you were going to do with it.
3) 30 days after the contest is completed, I will follow up with everyone and make sure they have actually used each of the prizes for what they said they wanted to.
Sure, I could have just kept all of this for myself, but what about putting the GoPro in the hands of an aspiring filmmaker?? That would be LIFE CHANGING for someone like that, and since you all have blessed me so so much with facilitating my dream, I wanted to give back and help you guys with yours.
I was truly, truly humbled and shocked with what you all came up with for the random act.
This one was my favorite …
Also what an AWESSSOOMMMEELLLYYY cool idea with teaching your bulldog how to skateboard. Unfortunately, the GoPro was the biggest ticketed item and the AMOUNT OF SUPPORT the winner received was difficult to ignore. I got tweets, comments … people REALLY stood behind this individual.
Here are your winners …

The j33i has a premium metal finish, deep powerful JBL bass, flat, stylish cable resists tangles, and a premium carry case.
And now for our final winner … the winner of the Go Pro Hero 3, with wifi remote, and handle bar & chest mounts.
As this was the most requested item in the group, it was SOOOO difficult to pick. I didn’t consider how difficult it was going to be to rate someone’s passion and deem it “better” than another. Dude, if people want to pound sand all day every day I’m down. Whatever floats your boat in life, and whatever makes you happy. That’s ALLLL that ever matters.
So, instead of leaving it up to me, I was actually inundated with emails, tweets, and comments on this individual and how hard and passionately he works.
Here is his initial entry …
::game show host voice:: That’s right, Joe Neuburger YOU HAVE WON THE HERO 3 FROM GO PRO!!!!
The Hero 3 from GoPro features an 11 mp image sensor, ultra wide angle aspherical lens, enhanced audio performance, micro HDMI port, and is wifi ready.
In addition to the Hero, we are also giving him the wifi remote, chest & handlebar mounts which are sold separately but enhance the GoPro experience.
There you have it ladies, and germie men. CONGRATS TO ALL THE WINNERS!!! Please email me your mailing address, and I will mail everything out this weekend.
(I’m paying for shipping and handling for my own karma and decided to keep the JBL charge for myself in observance of my own hard work and deservingness.)
Remember all winners have 30 DAYS to actually execute their passions and do what they said they were going to do with each of the prizes.
Rock on everyone!! And thanks to EVERYONE who entered and performed the random acts of kindness. SO FREAKING COOL to read them all!!! And A BIIGGGG THANK YOUUUUUU to Sam Levin & Chris Voss for all the hard work with the gift bags that even allowed this to go down in the first place.
Thanks to JBL, Seagate, GoPro, Beats, and of course your mom.
Much love nerderinos!! xx
