You've Got Mail - A Super Special Giveaway!!!
I know it's not Thanksgiving yet, but it's really important that you give me a little leeway for a few minutes, okay?
I've got something special I've been wanting to do for a long time...and here it is!
We have a running joke at our house in Ghana. In our house, we eat candy canes at Valentine's Day, conversation hearts at Easter, chocolate bunnies at Fourth of July, and candy corn at Christmas. Is that because we're wierd? Well, maybe we are wierd, but the real reason is because my awesome mom sends us holiday care packages. But, she's so busy and it takes so much time for mail to travel half-way around the world, that the candy is always one holiday behind :)
When I knew we were coming back to the States on furlough I knew I wanted to do a fun holiday giveaway for my missionary mama friends. It drives me nuts that whenever you read a blog giveaway, it almost always says, "Only valid for US residents" or something similar. I've always wondered why they are giving things away to people who can just go buy them if they want? But that's another subject for another day. (I know, I know. It's because shipping is so expensive. Just givin' 'em a hard time!)
Now, if you're not a missionary mama, or you're not on the field right now, I'm so glad you're here and please don't be offended. Some days a little box of something familiar is just what a missionary mama needs to brighten her day a bit!
So today I'm turning the tables! This giveaway is ONLY for missionary mamas ON THE FIELD!!!
I've got a special little box of Thanksgiving and Christmas goodies all ready for one of you special ladies!
Not only will you get mail, but you'll also get some fun treats for the holidays!
I'm aware that these special days are coming quickly, and mail often takes awhile to make it 'round the globe, so this giveaway starts today and the winner will be announced next Monday.
A quick caveat: you must be able to pay the customs/duty, etc. on the package sent. If it's not worth it to you, then don't enter your name, 'k? I know that in some countries, that is the case. Sorry :(
So how do we play?
Simply leave a comment on this blog telling what country you are in right now and what would be the BEST thing you could ever receive in a box from the states. I'd love for lots of ladies to have the chance to win, so if you blog about this, I'll give you an extra entry. Just come back and comment again. And whether you are a missionary yourself or not, if you know a missionary mama that may not know about this blog, please tell them to come on over and join the fun! Thanks!
Easy enough? I thought so!
See you Monday, and hopefully you'll get a box BEFORE the holidays roll around. If not, you might be using turkey napkins for Christmas and eating candy canes for Valentine's Day!
