Back To School Giveaway Event 2009

by Janice

It’s time for school! Ready or not, it is time to get back into our school routines — packing lunches, supervising homework, and taxiing our kids to all of their activities. The only thing busier than summer is the school year!

jackson-school-lockerI can’t believe that school has already begun for many of your children! In our neck of the woods, kids don’t hit the classrooms until after Labor Day. So I still have some time to get organized.

This year, Jackson is heading into Grade Two, (or 2nd Grade, as you Americans say,) and I am so excited for him. There is nothing like that thrill of being a grade older and heading into a new year…

I am also excited about the fun giveaways we have in store for you during our 5 Minutes for Mom Back To School Giveaway Event. Whether your kids are already in school or you haven’t even begun to get ready, you can have some fun getting ready here!

Win prizes, find shopping ideas and get in the mood for fall.

From printers to backpacks, we have something for everyone. Our Back To School Giveaway Event begins today, August 14th, and will end on Friday, August 28th. We will announce our winners on Saturday, August 29th.

Here’s what you need to do to join in on the fun and make sure you are signed up to win the prizes –

Back To School Lands’ End Twitter Party

For even more back to school fun, we will be holding a Back To School Lands’ End Twitter Party from 7-9 P.M. CT on August 20th. (Mark your calendars)

You will want to check out as well as their backpack micro-site before the party starts.

We have some great prizes in store including backpacks, lunchboxes and Lands’ End gift cards. We will be asking you to tell us which back to school items from their site you like best. So do your homework, to help ensure that you will walk away a winner.

It’s going to be fun and we hope to see you all there. We know that the next couple of weeks are hectic ones for many of you, so don’t worry, there will be plenty of reminders.

Wow! Tons of great giveaways. Thankfully school doesn’t start until after labour day here. I haven’t really started planning.

I’m looking forward to meeting you in Chicago next week.

How cool! Too bad my kids are not old enough for school yet lol…

But while you moms, we thought that it would be a great idea to add some more fun, cooking fun that is, into the mix.

we’re giving away a wolfgang puck panini maker as part our back-to-school so that your kids can come home to their favorite nice warm panini sandwich.
