I cannot believe how quickly the holidays have come upon us. It seems like yesterday I was laying out on the beach while watching my kids frolic in the lake.
But now that the leaves are changing from green to bright reds and oranges, I know that Christmas is not that far off. In fact, I see all the Christmas displays in the stores filled with lots and lots of goodies for the family members. So, ya know what I say? Bring on the Christmas holiday!
It’s time for the annual 5 Minutes for Mom Christmas Giveaway 2011 to begin. I have been busy lining up some great giveaway prizes this year, which you will soon be able to find down at the bottom of this post (the first one will be posted on Tuesday, November 1st).
Yes, we love this time of year! Not only do we have the pleasure of helping some families in need with our Under the Tree program, but we also get to bring some fun Christmas Giveaways your way to help you with your holiday shopping.
Let’s Get Busy Shopping!
As always, our Christmas Giveaway 2011 is jam packed with fun! (Please scroll down to see our current list of prizes.) We will publish the first giveaway on Tuesday, November 1st, 2011 followed by a new giveaway each day throughout November. So be sure to check back.
We will have tons of giveaways coming your way this month to ensure that you have lots of fun, lots of chances to win, and lots of shopping ideas!
AND, we are delighted to once again spread some holiday cheer with our Under the Tree program!
Under the Tree
Under the Tree 2011 is our chance to spread some Christmas love to families in need through the generosity of the companies contributing to our Christmas Giveaway as well as companies who have donated “just because”. We are so grateful for their participation!
We have many wonderful companies providing presents to selected families who are in need this Christmas.
If you know a family who will not be able to provide presents for their children this Christmas, click over and read more about Under the Tree and how you can nominate a family in need.
