Now’s your chance to win a CARNIVAL Mother’s Day Gift Basket!!! A grand basket of sweets at a retail value of $ 38.00 all for FREE!!!
I couldn’t have picked a more appropriate time to host my first contest. Without our mothers waddling around with us for 9 months, none of us would be here. With that thought in mind, it’s a must that we give gratitude to the mothers who have dried our tears, rooted for us, lifted our spirits, dished out tough love, showed us how to create art with our hands, and taught us how to be mothers ourselves. (Well . . . almost all of us – I have no kiddies yet!)
Anyone can enter this contest. I’m going to ask you a 2-part question and I want you to think long and hard about your answer:
1. What significant life lesson has your mother (or a mother figure in your life) taught you?
2. How has this lesson benefited you and molded you into the person you are today?
E-mail your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be automatically entered. Your answer must be at least 2 heartfelt paragraphs and you may only enter the contest once.
I will go through each entry and choose the one I feel is well-written and stands out as the reason why we truly celebrate mother’s day. The winner will receive a special blog post with their winning entry published and CARNIVAL’s Mother’s Day Gift Basket which includes: 1 Almond & Brown Sugar Swirl Cake, 1 pack of Cocoa Caramelts, 1 pack of Peach Cobbler Chocolates, 2 Pumpkin Blooms, 1 Mallodamia Funday Bar, and 1 Blueberry Dream Funday Bar.
But wait . . . I couldn’t only give away 1 prize.
The runner-up will receive 1 free Almond & Brown Sugar Swirl Cake and their winning entry will be published as well!
The contest deadline is MAY 1st, 2008. The winner & runner-up will be announced MAY 2nd and your goodies will be shipped out to you on MAY 5th, just in time for Mother’s Day.
I wish you all good luck, now let the contest begin . . .
If you’d like to just go ahead and purchase this basket, it is available in the shop. It is a limited edition. All baskets will be made on MAY 3rd and mailed on MAY 4th for extra freshness. Only 4 gift baskets will be made. Now that’s exclusive!
