I know it appears that there are only four of us living in our home, but that’s not completely accurate. No, there’s actually a fifth honorary member of our family, and he’s (yes, it’s a “him”) the inspiration for this month’s “give-away-for-a-good-cause.”
So before I introduce the give-away, let me tell you a little about this special member of our family.
He goes with us EVERYWHERE.
To the park, to the couch, to the store, to the dinner table, to Chipotle, to the bathroom, to church, to the Post Office, to the porch, to Target, to festivals, to the beach, to other houses, to hotels…like seriously…he goes EVERYWHERE with us.
He is there in EVERY TIME.
In the happy times, in the sad times, in the lonely times, in the melt-down times, in the uncertain times, in the bored times, in the tired times…like seriously…he is there for EVERY TIME.
He is green AND brown.
Such lovely, comforting colors…like seriously…he matches with EVERYTHING.
He has a velvety-soft side AND a rougher-furrier side.
Such pleasant, soothing material…like seriously…he meets EVERY tactile need.
He is big.
30 inches long, 40 inches wide…like seriously…he can be seen from ANYWHERE.
He has a tag.
It’s small, soft, super-worn, and simultaneously rubbed while sucking the thumb…like seriously…by default, he may be the sixth member of our home because tag goes EVERYWHERE too.
He has a clone.
Just in case something happens to him or just in case he needs to be washed…because seriously…he needs to be present ALL the time.
He is Caden’s BFF (best furry friend).
…because seriously…he is with him ALL the time.
His name is “ my blankie.”
…and seriously… I am semi-convinced that there must be some gene-involvement in this blanket connection because there’s another guy in this home who had a “friendy” when he was a wee lad. Just sayin’…
In this house, we love us a “my blankie” and in a lot of ways…NEED a “my blankie.”
I realize this was quite the lengthy introduction to this month’s give-away, but I think it helps explain why my heart was drawn to this endearing cause.
So…without further ado, let me introduce you to “Everything Happy” and share some excerpts about their mission.
“…Trademarked by its “one to love, one to give” philosophy, Everything Happy is determined to bring smiles to every child – both locally and worldwide…”
“…For every Happy product purchased, another one is given to a child in need…”
“At the age of 7 years, young David [founder of the company] was inspired by his sisters’ favorite treasures-blankies and stuffed animals…”
“From orphanages to hospitals, to poverty-stricken communities, Everything Happy has touched the lives of thousands of children. David and his family, along with the Everything Happy team, have witnessed the power of donating a smile.”
So what am I giving away this month? Well, I guess you could say that I’m giving away some SNUGGLES!
I will be giving away one of these huggable, lovable “Snuggle Pals” and in turn, one additional “Snuggle Pal” will be donated to a child in need.
Here’s a link to all of the available “Snuggle Pals.”
There’s no need to have a child in order to vie for a “Snuggle Pal,” everyone knows of someone who could use a snuggling friend.
Just tell me your favorite item you snuggled as a child and using a random lottery system, I will choose a winner on Monday!
Ps. There’s not a limit to how many “give-away” prizes you can win, so comment away!
