GAINESVILLE, Fla., Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fourteen million dollars in jewelry is up for grabs, as 30-year jewelry industry veteran offers thousands of rings, necklaces, watches and more to one lucky essay contest winner. To spend more time with his family, Pearse Hayes is giving away a fortune in jewelry.
People from all walks of life are invited to submit an essay at 14million.com explaining how this windfall would change their lives for the better. The winner of this 14 million dollar opportunity will be selected by an independent judging panel based on the content of their 300-word essay explaining how they would use the fortune to transform the lives of those around them.
Hayes created this opportunity following a series of personal setbacks. A few years ago, his highly successful jewelry business was rocked by a break-in. While he fought to recover from that financial loss, he experienced a debilitating leg injury. Not long after, Hayes was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. He continues undergoing radiation and chemotherapy to this day. While tragic, this series of events led Hayes to refocus on what matters most.
Hayes says, "Life is too short. I have two daughters. I want to see them go to senior prom and get the first dance at their weddings. So, I decided that I was going to live life differently."
This inspired Hayes to give away a very large portion of his inventory to one very lucky person via this contest. "I want someone else who has the time to be able to take a wonderful opportunity and make their own dreams come true."
For a chance to win, entrants must submit a 300-word essay at 14million.com expressing how this opportunity could change their lives. There is no need to be a great writer, as judges simply want to hear in common terms why each entrant may be the right person to make the most of this unique opportunity. Judges will then select whom they subjectively deem most worthy.
Cost to enter the essay contest is just $195, and every entrant will automatically receive 30 pieces of jewelry shipped to them at no charge. So, even those who don't win the grand prize receive an immediate return on investment.
