The Great Christmas Giveaway Giveaway!

Dec 07, 2009


My good friend, Miggy, of This Little Miggy fame, came up with a brilliant idea and I'm thrilled to be participating. After reading the guidlines below, you'll get the idea. I'm joining with other great bloggers this week in hosting some fantastic giveaways.

Giveaway Giveaway guidelines:  

-- In keeping with the spirit of Christmas this giveaway is meant to focus on others--therefore you are to enter only in behalf of someone else.  We ask that this person be someone who is in particular need this holiday season.  We appreciate your honesty in this. 

-- Enter by leaving a brief and vague comment about the person you are entering for and why.  Something along the lines of "I'm entering for my friend who has had a rough year."  Please don't be too specific!  

--1 entry per person.   

-- Each giveaway will be open for 2 days {unless otherwise noted}.  We will then draw a name randomly and announce the winner at the end of the 2 days.  

--Once the winner has been announced they will need to send us an email with the name and address of the person they entered for.  All packages will be mailed directly to the 'person in need' and all packages will be sent anonymously.

Today's giveaway is a $50 Target gift card! Know anyone who could use it?  You have until Wednesday 12am MST (Tuesday night) to enter and the winner will be announced Wednesday morning.


Remember, you're entering to give these away to someone else!

Check back all week to see the other great giveaways. Head over to Say Yes! to Hoboken for quite possibly the most darling pillows I've ever seen.
P.S. Your comments may not look like they "go through" but they come to my email and I aprove them. Don't be comment shy. Happy Holidays to you, my friends.
