Moms are Every Day Heroes: DG Giveaway

***Closed: Congrats to Zestywonderland***

Mother's Day may be over, but Dollar General is continuing the celebration all month.  As part of their Every Day Heroes initiative, Dollar General and Proctor & Gamble are honoring the sacrifices moms make for their family. To celebrate moms, Dollar General is inviting customers to upload a video describing why their moms are "Every Day Heroes."

If your mom deserves to be recognized, head over to the Dollar General site and share what makes her amazing!  While you're there, you can also enter to win a trip to a U.S. Olympic Training Center by buying participating products and entering the code on their site.

Win It:
To join in the fun, I have a special prize package for one lucky reader that includes: Tide Pods, Febreze Auto Air Freshener, Always Radiant, Tampax Radiant, Secret Coco Butter Clear Gel, Old Spice Champion Deodorant and a Dollar General chip clip.


Mandatory entry: To enter, tell me one thing that makes your mom special (or one thing your kids love about you.)

My mom ALWAYS makes time for me. She has about a million responsibilities, but if I need her for any reason, she drops whatever she's doing to help me out.

mkjmc said...

She is kind to all, willing to give advice but not until asked, not a meddler at all

I love my mom because now that I am a mom I see that everything she did is because she loves me. Funny thing my daughter wrote in her other's day card was that she loves me because I am the best at "putting her milk in her princess sippy cup". :)
