Target Helps You Stay Healthy and Well This Flu Season – Giveaway

by Jennifer Sikora


The other day I went to the doctor to get my yearly checkup and I noticed that the waiting room was full of people who were sick and had caught some kind of virus. I cringed and immediately reached for my bottle of sanitizer because I do not like to get sick! As a mom, when I get sick the household gets really chaotic (how many of you moms feel that way) and I truly do not get to rest that much, so I must do my best to stay well!

I’m glad to say that thanks to Target, I can spearhead those nasty viruses floating in the air and do my best to stay healthy and well — especially during this time of the year when the flu and stomach bug are so widely spread. Once again, Target is hosting a huge giveaway basket featuring some of their best products to help you and me and all the other mothers out get healthy and hopefully stay healthy!

So, what’s included in the giveaway basket?
