Today, December 1st, we are Giving Away Products from FIVE Different Companies...(CLOSED)


HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY GIVE AWAY TODAY

One day last year while visiting The Pioneer Woman, who hosted giveaways every now and then, I thought to myself, “It would be cool if there was a site that gave something away every single weekday. You would check the blog each day to discover the new giveaway item, receive a discount from the featured company, and see if you were the previous day’s winner.” I started sending emails to companies and wa-la, on December 1, 2008, Give Away Today was born.

This past year I have loved discovering new products and sharing them with the readers of Give Away Today. I have also enjoyed working with the companies I feature. And of course, I appreciate you, the readers of Give Away Today, for visiting the site and for all of your great comments--many that have made me laugh and some that have even made me cry (a good cry).

Thank you for supporting Give Away Today (and all of the companies we feature) this past year! Therefore, in honor of our One Year Anniversary, today we are giving away products from FIVE Different Companies.


Giveaway #1: A Fortunately Gift Box to Five Winners from Fortunatelys

How many times have you watched a love one struggle with a difficult decision or accomplish a worthy goal and wondered how you could express your encouragment or adoration?
Life is full of triumphs and challenges, celebrations and misfortune and lessons and learning.
Fortunatelys allows you to say "I care" and extend upliftment for all of these experiences.
Each gift box is custom created to bring whatever good fortune is needed.

With Fortunatelys you receive:

~A personalized card
~A large delicious fortune cookie
~Three occasion-specific fortunes selected by Fortunatelys or customized by you
All wrapped up in a stylish and attractive package for only $11.00(+$4.95 s/h).

This makes Fortunatelys more than a card, cheaper than flowers, and all together a lasting impression.

Fortunatelys is the unique and perfect gift for every occasion. The personalized element is what makes it truly special and uplifting to both sender and receiver. From Birthdays to bad luck to friendship and hope, Fortunatelys is your source for sending good fortune!" single act of kindness throw out roots in all directions and the roots spring up and make new trees." Start planting by sending Fortunatelys.

Today Fortunatelys is giving away a Chocolate Dipped Fortunatelys to Five Different Winners. Each winner can customize and send one Fortunatelys Gift Box to someone of their choosing. Fortunatelys only ships to those living in the U.S., so if you would like to send a Fortunately to someone you know who lives in the U.S., you can enter to win up to THREE times today.

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

For a second entry, please visit Fortunately's website here and then return to Give Away Today and in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and who you would send the Fortunately to if you are our winner.
Example: Jane Doe: I have already sent Fortunatelys to two people I know. I think Fortunatelys are such a fun and unique gift. I sent one to the gal who organized the Redrock Relay for my team and I sent another to my niece for her tenth birthday. I customized the fortunes which made them that much more special. To my niece the fortunes read,
"May you always have beautiful red hair."
"May you and Minnie (her stuffed animal) be friends forever."
"May you continue to succeed in Mrs. Groesbeck's fourth grade class."
She loved it! And said the fortunate cookie was quite tasty.

For a third entry, in a NEW comment tell us your first and last name and how you first heard about Give Away Today.
Example: Jane Doe: I saw Give Away Today's button on my friend's blog.

The winners of the Fortunately Gift Box from Fortunatelys will be announced tomorrow Wednesday, December 2nd. Please visit us then to see if you are our winner and to discover our new giveaway. Thanks!
