Are you Ready for Despicable Me 2? #ad #Giveaway

by Jennifer Donovan

Jennifer Donovan, 5M4M contributor, is happy to share this fun giveaway in honor of the release of Despicable Me 2. She was paid to write this post, and we were compensated for this campaign.

I have a very fond association with Despicable Me. Three years ago, a bunch of us bloggers were floored to be asked to attend the junket for Despicable Me (linked to some of my coverage). It was the first time for all of us, and boy was it memorable, made even better by the fact that it was a great movie with an all-star cast.

My kids and I have both been super-excited about the sequel, seeing the adorable girls and the kindler, gentler, GOOD Gru, and of course, more minions!

Just watching that preview makes me smile. My family and I will all be there opening weekend, which kicks off July 3.

Despicable Me 2 Prize Pack worth $100

I am thrilled that one of you is going to win all of these awesome prizes.
