Regardless of the promotion, here are a few things to note:

OPEN Door Challenge: Tesla Edition (“Sweepstakes”) is a sweepstakes that begins December 18th, 2017 and ends December 31st, 2017 (“promotion period). This promotion period is conditional. Technology for the Future withholds the right to postpone the drawing date by 30 days at a time until entry requirements are met. Technology for the Future also withholds the right to disclose the internal details of the organization in regards to the sweepstakes.


The sponsor of this sweepstakes is Adrian Martinca (“Sponsor”). By participating in the Sweepstakes, each entrant unconditionally accepts and agrees to comply with and abide by these Official Rules and the decisions of Sponsor, which shall be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor is responsible for the collection, submission or processing of Entries and the overall administration of the Sweepstakes. Entrants should look solely to Sponsor with any questions, comments or problems related to the Sweepstakes. You can contact us at: mission@technologyforthefuture.org

Technology for the Future offers several ways to enter a sweepstakes, the two options for entry are described below:


Via donation. Through access to T4TF.org, you are able to enter into our community of impact through registration. For every $9 you donate to the Technology for the Future cause, you get a sweepstakes entry as a thank you. We accept donations in $9 increments, so the donation is rounded up to the next multiple of 9.


Via free entry. On the landing page, t4tf.org, enter your email into the appropriate bar, and click next. Do so before the deadline to be entered to win.


Automated or robotic Entries submitted by individuals or organizations will be disqualified. Internet entry must be made by the Entrant. Any attempt by Entrant to obtain more than the stated number of Entries by using multiple/different email addresses, identities, registrations, logins or any other methods, including, but not limited to, commercial contest/sweepstakes subscription notification and/or entering services, will void Entrant’s Entries and that Entrant may be disqualified.
