Updated 3/17/12: Congratulations to the winner of our giveaway – Tina Reynolds – commenter #115! Thank you to all who entered and please check back often for more reviews and prizes! This winner was chosen using www.random.org.
You may or may not know that in addition to having my own blog, and writing here at A Frog in My Soup, I am also a Social Media Consultant for ODIZ Baby Supply. ODIZ Baby Supply is a mom owned & operated business that I became involved with because I loved to shop with them. Christine, the owner, makes sure that everything she puts in her store is not only high quality, but is safe, and in most cases, made in the USA. As a mom of three, she is extremely conscious of what works, and what doesn’t, and she uses her first hand knowledge to stock only the best of the best.
Christine is also extremely giving and about a month ago she expressed to me that she would like to put together a big basket of baby necessities for a deserving mom that couldn’t afford to purchase these supplies for themselves. We decided to call this a “Super Mom Super Giveaway”! Shera is such an amazing person and a mom who is always wanting to help others, so I knew that if I brought A Frog in My Soup together with ODIZ, we would be able to help a special parent! So, here I am, asking you, our fabulous readers, to help us out.
We are looking for one deserving mom (or dad, or grandparent, etc.) who is in need of supplies for their child, but doesn’t have the resources to get them. We want to help that parent out by giving them a supply of bottles, pacifiers, and other baby necessities from our stock of high-end, reliable products. We are asking that if you know a parent (or expecting parent) who is in need of, and deserves, a new supply of baby essentials, you send us a short description of that person and why they are worthy of winning our Super Mom Super Giveaway. (Please keep your essay to 200 words or less).
The basket will include a 10 oz Zoli Bottle Twin Pack, a 5 oz Zoli Bottle Twin Pack, a Pair of Mimi & Bibi Shoes, a Nuby Feeding Bowl Set, a Gerber Active Snacker, 1 pack of Zoli Medium Replacement Nipples, a Talking Bobbie & Friends Beanie, and a Hevea Latex Paci or MAM Perfect Pacifier. This gift set is worth more than $100 and ODIZ will even customize the sizes of the pacifier and the colors for the products based on the winner’s preference.
Here are some of things that we will be considering when looking at our applicants.
- How does this person go above and beyond as a parent?
- How do they help others in their family/community/town/state, etc.?
- Why are they in need of the supplies?
- How would winning this contest help them?
How to Nominate
Please include the nominee’s name and general location when submitting them to the contest. Please also include a picture of the parent and their child if possible. We are beyond thrilled to be able to do this for one very special person and we can’t wait to start receiving your submissions! All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 26th, 2012.
Believe it or not, this gets even better! YOU can win one of these baskets as well, just for being a reader of A Frog in My Soup!
