Damn that Oprah. She did her whole favorite things show today where she gave away the $1000 to all the audience members and they had to give it away. Did you see it? Like I need to cry anymore than I already do.
So, I've taken my tears and am turning them into action by offering the Support a Mom Contest this month.
Here's how it works.
1) Find an expectant mom with a blog who could use a little pick me up. First time mom? Single mom? Tired mom? Mom who just needs some cool stuff because she's a mom with another on the way? GREAT. Just make sure she's EXPECTING (or ADOPTING).
2) Write a post about her on your own blog. A full post. Not a link, but a nice post. Make sure to link to her blog.
3) Email me or post the link to YOUR post in the comments below by Friday, December 8.
4) I'll pick 3-5 finalists and then readers will vote.
5) The winner will get a $50 gift card to Merry Maids or Spa Wish and the winning nominator will get a $50 gift card to Merry Maids or Spa Wish. YES. BOTH OF YOU WILL WIN SOMETHING! You can also choose to give your gift card to your nominee if you're feeling EXTRA generous this holiday season.
*If you have or make cool stuff for moms and you'd like to donate an item towards a gift basket for the winning mom, let me know and I'll make you one of the sponsors of the contest.
So, that's all. NOW GO. READ BLOGS. WRITE POSTS. NOMINATE. And spread the love by linking this post on your own blog.
