Today, August 11th, we are Giving Away...(CLAIMED)



A 2 person Deluxe Guardian 72 hour kit retailed at $89.99

My Dad always told me, BE PREPARED! Weather it was for a big test, or while driving right after I got my license or if I was going into a potentially dangerous situation (like possibly backpacking through Europe.) So today's featured company is going to help us get prepared in a very important way- with 72 hour kits! One of the worst scenarios I can think of would be a time where I could not provide my children with food, water or medical care. I want to be able to take care of my family and I'm sure you do to, so here is some help:

At Ultimate 72 Hour Kits their goal is to provide you with a high quality and reliable 72 hour kit. All of the kits come pre-packaged in either a backpack or container for easy storage and accessibility. Their 72 hour kits are light weight, durable and come fully equipped with everything you will need to get by for a full 72 hours. Having a 72 hour kit in your home will give you and your family peace of mind. Also, at Ultimate 72 Hour Kits they believe you should be prepared not only at home, but everywhere your life takes you. For this reason , they have also prepared 72 hour kits for the office and car. Ultimate 72 Hour Kits wants to make sure you and your family will always be prepared.
Here are some of the other specialty items they offer:

Kits specially designed for kids: A great tool that can be used a variety of ways: A filtration bottle so you can have fresh water ANYWHERE:

And they also have a lot of items that would be great for camping. So check it out and get your family prepared. And Ultimate 72 hour kits will help you out by offering FREE shipping for our readers (and that is a great deal on a big bag full of items!) Just enter the code GIVEAWAY in the redemption code box.

You can enter to win the Deluxe Guardian 72 hour kit up to FOUR times today, as long as you reside in the United States or Canada.

For one entry, leave your first and last name in a comment.
Example: Jane Doe

For a second entry, please visit Ultimate 72 hour kits here. Look at all of their products to get you prepared and then return to Give Away Today. In a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and an item you think your family could really use.
Example: Jane Doe: I need a 72 hour kit for each person in my family!

For a third entry, see those buttons on the left-hand side? They are Give Away Today's sponsors--thank you sponsors--we love you! For your third entry today we would like for you to visit at least three of their sites (and no, we don't get paid each time someone clicks on their button). We just want you to visit them because they have amazing products and some of them are even offering discounts to you. Once you have visited at least three of our sponsor's sites, you get a third entry. Tell us which sites you visited.
Example: Jane Doe: I visited Red Rock Relay (to check out the course again, can't wait to run in that), Sophie's Chic Boutique (made a mental note to order more squeaky shoes) and Toy Box Tee (because I love to look at their creative tees.)

For a fourth entry, tell us about a time when you were in an emergency situation.
Example: Jane Doe: My husband and I were smack dab in the middle of Hurricane Floyd's path when we were living in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We had to flee with all of the other residents of Myrtle Beach. Therefore, it took us four and a half hours to drive out. It was a mess, but I admit, a little exciting.

The winner of the kit from Ultimate 72 Hour Kit will be announced Wednesday, August 12th. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway for the day. See you tomorrow!

Melanie Labuguen: I vaguely remember being in a blacked out home during Hurricane Iwa in Hawaii sometime in the 80s. That was the first and last hurricane I had to endure and, as a young child, I recall it being terrifying.

Corey and Kim Nasfell said...

Kimberly Nasfell: The first summer we lived in San Diego (summer of 2007) there were INSANE wild fires that surrounded the entire city. We were covered in the thickest layer of black smoke. Couldn't go outside, couldn't do anything but watch the tv and pray that the fires were put out before they consumed all of southern california!

Shana Chamberlain- I definitely need 72 hour kits for each person in my family! We're working on it!

Corey and Kim Nasfell said...

Corey Nasfell: while on a tour of duty with the Navy our ship got down to having only 20% of our water capacity. It was pretty scary because we were in the middle of the ocean and our water purifiers were both broken. We had less than two days before we would run out of water completely. We weren't allowed to shower, wash our hands, use the water fountains, and do laundry. Needless to say, the ship was extra smelly until we hit our next port!

Todd and Shana said...

Shana Chamberlain: Say it on the Wall and Bishop Built, because I'm obsessed with vinyl and home decor....and Maddie Morgan because I just LOVE cute hair stuff for my girls!!!

Kimberley said...

Lichtlein said...

Claudia Eissing: It was yesterday, on my birthday! My husband, my daughter, both sons and I were on a little canoeing trip on Mountain lake Olef. Surprisingly the bright and sunny weather changed into a bad thunderstorm. We found ourselves in the middle of total chaos, rucksacks with food and beverages were lost, youngest son (diabetic) went into a shock, daughter broke right hand by trying to save a canoe from sinking, mobile phone was wet and out of function. Eight hours later in the middle of the night we were rescued by local rangers.
So we sweared: next time we would be prepared much better!

Very cold and our cabin did NOT come with sheets, blankets or pillows. We pretty much froze all night long. If I had a couple emergency blankets in the car, we would have been a little better off.
