Blogs I Have Loved: My First Giveaway
There are some people out there who have a lot of pull in blog world. They are able to give away things like vacuum cleaners or ipod touches. I'm not one of those people. I'm just some chick who lives above a garage and drives around in a 9 year old jeep, thinking she's cool. When I have a giveaway, its for something a little smaller. Let me tell you the story:
Two weekends ago, I had the pleasure of meeting a bunch of great gals from Mom It Forward. It's a blog whose purpose (in their own words) is to: change the world one mom at a time. Well, I may not be a mom, but I certainly found some kindred souls in the desire to change the world. It's a great blog, with lots of ideas and advice and giveaways and such.
Anyhoo...during this meet and greet event, I came into ownership of a car seat ID tag. The tags were donated by My Precious Kid, another great organization that specializes in products for moms and, well, their precious kids. The car seat ID tag has important info including name age, weight, drug allergies, medical conditions, etc, in the event of an accident that leaves mom or dad unable to relay that info to medical personnel. Let's face it: that's just good thinking!
Here's my problem: I don't have a precious kid. And I don't really have anyone in mind to give this away to. However, I do have a great bloggy friend, Lacey. She has an etsy store with lots of kiddy stuff for precious kiddies.
So here's the skinny: I forwarded this little ditty on down to Lacey. Y'all should visit her blog and her etsy store! I believe the dealio is she's gonna draw a name at random from folks who place an order. And somebody will get a nifty ID tag in addition to an adorable handmade bib! Or something like that. Anyway, check her out!
And there ya have it! Giving stuff away. One ID tag at a time.
