It’s finally here -- the I Love My Mommy Blog Hop! More than 70 blogs are participating in this exciting event, so you have a lot of chances to win some great prizes, all valued at $50 or higher.
As my giveaway for this event, Pampers is generously donating a $50 American Express gift card to one of you! This prize is in conjunction with their Little Miracle Missions campaign, during which they are challenging people to pay-it-forward to help families with little miracles. Everyone can easily participate in a small way by logging on to Pampers Facebook page (Facebook.com/Pampers) and hitting “like,” and then going to the Miracle Missions tab and committing to Mission 1 by clicking “I Want to Pledge.” Once more than 2,500 people pledge, Pampers will respond by giving baby showers to expectant mothers nationwide just in time for Mother’s Day. As a side note, anyone who pledges is automatically entered to win a year’s supply worth of Pampers diapers and wipes (and that can definitely help someone in a big way!).
I was provided with a $50 gift card to get the ball rolling, and I’m going to donate it to a local pregnancy care center, which provides support for women who are pregnant or have young children and are having trouble making ends meet. When my twins outgrew their toddler beds several years ago, I donated them to this center so they could give them to families who couldn’t afford furniture for their little ones. I got such a great feeling knowing that two more children would snuggle up in these beds each night!
So, now it’s your turn! The winner of this giveaway will receive a $50 American Express gift card courtesy of Pampers. You’re free to spend it anyway that you’d like, of course, but we’re hoping that you’ll pay-it-forward to help a family in need. Perhaps you’ll use the money to buy diapers, purchase groceries, host a fundraiser, or donate it to a worthy organization, as I’m going to do.
