GOOD LUCK CLUB MEMBERSHIP RULES

The Good Luck Club™ (the "Contest") is sponsored by Project Rise and Shine, Inc., 9663 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 801, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 ("PR&S"), using the Project Rise and Shine, Inc. website located at http://www.ProjectRiseandShine.com (the "Site"). The monthly Contest begins on October 1st, 2005 at 9am Eastern Time ("ET") (the "Start Date"), and ends at midnight ET at the end of each calendar month, (referred to herein as the "Monthly Contest Period"). The Contest utilizes a system of point accumulation and peer review that provides Contestants the opportunity to be awarded points for progressing towards their personal goals and to solicit votes from other Contestants. The system is based on the honesty and propriety of the Contestants and is also subject to the sensibilities and taste of each individual voting Contestant. By entering into this Contest, you are stating that you fully realize and accept that you are entering a contest that employs a peer review system. You agree to accept the points awarded to you by the system and the voting results that you achieve during the peer review process, knowing that you may not contest or dispute those results. You also agree that PR&S will perform its own review of the points awarded each month and will make the final selection of the Monthly Winner pursuant to the criteria established in paragraph II.C. below. The decision of PR&S will be final. If you do not agree with these policies regarding the peer-review system, DO NOT ENTER THIS CONTEST. EACH PERSON WHO PARTICIPATES IN THE CONTEST FULLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY AGREES TO COMPLY WITH AND ABIDE BY THESE OFFICIAL RULES AND THE DECISIONS OF PR&S, WHICH SHALL BE FINAL AND BINDING IN ALL RESPECTS.

Beginning on the Start Date, individuals may register at the Site to participate in the Contest by visiting the Store area and using a credit card to pay the monthly subscription fee. Once an individual has registered for the Contest and become a paid Contestant, the Contestant’s credit card will then be automatically billed $9.95 each month thereafter as long as the Contestant remains a member of the Good Luck Club™.  A Contestant may cancel his or her membership at any time by notifying PR&S at admin@projectriseandshine.com or writing PR&S at 9663 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 801, Beverly Hills, CA 90210.  In the event a Contestant cancels his or her membership within seven (7) days of first enrollment and PR&S receives said notice within this time period, PR&S will refund the Contestant the full amount of the Contestant’s initial payment less a processing fee of $5.00.  If a Contestant cancels his or her membership after seven (7) days, the Contestant will not be entitled to any refund of monthly membership fees paid prior to cancellation.

Contestants may elect, in their discretion, whether or not to solicit votes from other Contestants who have viewed their materials, and Contestants who are solicited may elect, in their discretion, whether or not to give their votes to one or more soliciting Contestants. While voting is optional, Contestants should be aware that the votes accumulated by them from other Contestants who have viewed these materials will be a factor in determining the winner of the Monthly Contest. Contestants also agree that the email address they provide in their personal profile may be available for other Contestants to see.

D. Each Monthly Contest Winner will be awarded a one-hour, personal telephone conversation and strategy session with Larry Thompson.. The Winner will be notified by email within fifteen (15) days of selection.

Rules Governing Winners. All taxes (including, without limitation, federal, state, and local taxes) on or connected with any prize, and the reporting consequences thereof, are the sole and exclusive responsibility of respective winners. Each winner must execute and return an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability/Publicity Release within a period of time dictated by PR&S. Failure to do so may result in disqualification and an alternative winner being selected. All prizes awarded in connection with the Contest are nontransferable and nonendorseable. No substitution of prizes is permitted.

Publicity Release. By participating in the Contest, in addition to any other grant of rights which may be granted in any other agreement entered into between PR&S and any participant in or winner of the Contest, each Registrant irrevocably transfers, grants and assigns to PR&S and its successors, assigns and licensees, the right to use their videotaped/recorded names, User Names, likenesses, photographs, and biographical information in any and all media for any purpose including, without limitation, advertising and promotional purposes as well as on the Site in connection with the Contest and other promotions, and releases PR&S, and its affiliated companies, successors and assigns, from any liability with respect thereto.

Internet Provisions/Force Majeure.

No mechanically reproduced, illegible, incomplete, forged, software generated or other automated multiple entries will be accepted.

Dates and Deadlines/Anticipated Number of Contestants.
