, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We’ll send back a cool coloring book page -- and if you send it back to us once you complete it, it’ll be featured on Instagram.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE: If at least 50 people provide proof of a contribution, we’ll release a special outtakes episode into the main feed. This is something I was saving for a paywall later, so this is the best way to make it available for free.
