Announcing Our Mother's Day Contest...

With Mother’s Day approaching, I thought it would be fun to host our first official contest on Give Away Today—a Mother’s Day Contest. And the prizes are going to be fabulous!! Here’s how our contest will work:

Do you know a mom who deserves to win something special this Mother’s Day? One who works hard, shows an abundance of love, and knows just the right words to say and when to say them? If so, we would like you to nominate her to win one of our three amazing Mother’s Day packages. We will choose one mom who is from the state of Utah. She will win:

“The Utah Package”:
A Sitting and Photography Package Worth $250 from Amanda Alexander Photography
A Sego Lily Retreat Package (includes a massage, facial, and pedicure)

We will choose a second mom who is expecting a baby or who has had a baby within the past year. She will win:

“The Newborn Package” will include Products from:
My Simplicity Boutique
Close to My Heart
Smoky Pendants
Runners Up:

Our third Mother’s Day package is open to anyone who is already a mom or who would like to become a mom. She will win:

“The Mom Package” will include Products from:
Scentsy Gift Package
Dimples in Dresses
ShopbyM Jewelry
Runners Up:
Busy Mama Blog Design

To enter a mom you know (she could be your own mom, your mother-in-law, your wife, your sister, your neighbor, etc), please email giveaway2day@yahoo.com by midnight MST on April 15th. In your entry you must include the following information:

*Tell us in 350 words or less why the mom you are nominating deserves to win one of our Mother’s Day packages.
*You must indicate ONE package you would like for her to win.
*You can attach one image if you would like.

I, the moderator of Give Away Today, will not be picking the finalists. Rather I have formed a group of judges of very skilled, talented, and fun mothers. I will contact you if the mom you nominated will be one of our nine finalists (we will have three finalists for each package). On April 27, 28, and 29th on Give Away Today we will tell our readers a little bit about each of our finalists. The readers of Give Away Today will then vote and decide who the winners of our Mother’s Day contest will be. Our winners will be announced on May 4, 5, and 6th.

Thanks and start entering!
