We All Need A Miracle *CLOSED*

WINNER has been chosen & has 48 hours to contact me to claim their prize!! Thank you for all your help! I will also be shopping today for pampers and other necessities for the family that was chosen! 

In celebration of it’s 50th Birthday Pampers has launched the Miracle Mission campaign to encourage the public to pay it forward and deliver acts of kindness to others in need, especially those with little miracles.

Oh those little miracles are what gives many people hope. Who doesn't love seeing a baby's smile?! I know I sure do. I always turn over to Hubs with excitement about our next little miracle (No! I'm not preggo!).

Well, sometimes having a baby can add additional stress to a family. Thinking about all the financial responsibilities that will go towards keeping the baby safe, healthy and happy can be stressful.

I was given a challenge, and I love a good challenge, to help celebrate Pampers "50 years of Miracles." I was sent a $50 American Express Gift Card and was given authority to do with it what I please. Either give it away, buy some pampers, food or anything for a family in need, use it to raise additional money to help more families.... Anything!

Well, I thought and thought about what to do with it. And finally I decided!

In my area it gets super hot in the summer and there are so many families who do not have a way to stay cool. So I will be raising money by selling tickets to win some items (still getting some donations) including some FREE GAS (locally)! To purchase or donate just use the "Chip-In" widget below. Winners of raffle will be chosen on June 20th, 2011, FIRST DAY OF SUMMER! If winners are not local it would be appreciated if the winner can pay for shipping. Chip-in & leave a comment blow for each dollar you donate. Donate $5 = 5 comments

You can however donate until July 31st! And that money will be donated to my local food bank!

Money raised will be used to purchase two air-condition portable/window unit for two different families as well as pampers & baby formula (hopefully) for 3 months!

Watch this video for some inspiration!

Pampers is inviting everyone to join their Miracle Missions Program. Everyone can easily participate in a small way by logging on to Pampers Facebook page ( by hitting ‘like’ and then going to the Miracle Missions tab and committing to Mission 1 by clicking “I Want To Pledge.”  Once more than 2,500 people pledge, Pampers will respond by giving baby showers to expectant mothers nationwide.   As a side note, anyone who pledges is automatically entered to win a year’s supply worth of Pampers diapers and wipes (and that can definitely help someone in a big way!)

I’d love to extend this challenge to you! Pampers is allowing me to give (1) $50 American Express Giftcard to a lucky reader to perform a random act of kindness if you choose to do so.

(must be a subscriber, GFC is not working properly) 

Just leave a (ONE) comment on what you would do to help another family!
Leave another comment for each dollar amount you donate.
You are entered to win both the gift card and raffle items!!

Giveaway ends on June 20th @ 11:59pm and winner will be chosen via
One entry per household & open to those 18 years and older in the US
To purchase a ticket, chip-in and then leave a comment below!
If you just want to donate, please do and you will not need to email me, hence you will not win a prize.
If you or your company would like to donate a prize in the raffle or to donate to the families please email me - vetsmom_rgv(at)yahoo(dot)com!

I received one gift card (not as payment) from Pampers to help me do this raffle to help the local families. Another $50 gift card will be sent to the winner from Pampers.

  7. I would help buy food for a family in need. I can't stand it when I hear about people not being able to eat because they cant afford to buy food.

  8. im an email subscriber (and GFC follower)

    i would help them in little ways, like lending a hand to fix something, or helping watch the kids. I'm a believer in the philosophy of "teach a man to fish" and there's so many ways to do that! simply showing you care can be the greatest help sometimes!

  9. I would use couponing to get the most bang for the buck to help a local family who had to deal with flooding or storm damage a few weeks ago.

  10. I would like to help a family who is expecting twins. With the combination of coupons and sales I could make a nice gift basket full of baby essentials and diapers. Thank you
