Christmas Giveaway 2011

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.

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.

    From my point of view my dad and my mom are the two most fascinating people I have ever known as they always have been supporting me through all the frustrating,hard,bad,negative times that I have lived through.They have always been there for me no matter what happens.They were they one who took care of me from when I was born till now. They fulfilled my dreams and worked so hard almost their whole life so that I can have a bright future so now it is my time to repay a part of what ever they have done for me so my wish is to gift my mom and dad a chihuahua puppy(they love dogs). I believe that parents are the greatest gifts children have got. I really wish that this giveaway would help me achieve this wish of mine!!!!!!!!!!!!!(I would alsosharethe puppy gift with my grandma who has been a a social server all her life and she loves dogs so much!
