Please remember that these giveaways are solely for the enjoyment of Monica’s fans. Have fun, and remember that prizes are offered just to sweeten the playing. Here are the rules, but note that not all situations may be covered here, and Monica reserves the right to change or implement new rules as needed and/or as required by law at any time.
