CHD Giveaway for CHD Awareness Week!

Update 2/13/2010 ...it looks like there are still issues with comments on my blog, as far as I know it is a blogger issue and is causing trouble on many other blogs as well. I have been contacted by several people trying to enter this giveaway who are experiencing commenting glitches. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do about it at this time, so I am extending the time to enter this giveaway through the end of February. February is Heart Health Month, so I don't feel too bad extending the date to win past CHD Awareness Week. Please keep trying to enter and letting me know when there are issues, you can contact me through my contact email at the top of this page. Thanks so much for understanding!



Have you seen my Tweets about how much I love the T-Shirts from Saving Little Hearts? Did you see my post with pictures of Little Nut Nut and Wee Nut sporting their Saving Little Hearts T-Shirts?

I love these shirts!

We all buy cute little Congenital Heart Defect shirts, toys and stuffed animals for our kids and for ourselves, but what do we get for our Heart child's Grandparents? If you shop at Saving Little Hearts, you can get awesome shirts for the people who supported us the most. The Grandparents who are always there for us, who gave us support while our CHD baby was in the NICU and PICU and who stood beside us bedside. They watched our other children while we spend days and nights at the hospital. They answered our phones and doors while friends called and stopped by to see how our Heart babies were doing. They stayed strong for us when we fell apart.

My Congenital Heart Defects Awareness Week Giveaway is for the Grandparents.




I already have the shirt, don't ask how I ended up with it, lets just say that we ordered a few too many medium sized shirts. Instead of sending it back, we kept it and now I am giving it away to of you. Like I said it is a medium and is a light gray.

So I bet you are wondering how you can win this either for your child's grandparent or for yourself...there are many ways to enter...after each entry, you have to leave your email address so that I can get in touch with you privately...especially if this shirt is going to be a surprise for a grandparent. Enter your email address so that bots and spammers can not easily pick it up, something like this... isupportchdawareness[at}hearts[dot]com

2. Go to the Saving Little Hearts online store and check out all of their awesome items and then come back and leave a comment here and tell me what your favorite item is, that is worth another entry.

OK, that is 10 different ways to enter to win this awesome shirt! Don't forget you have to leave a comment for each time you complete one of the 10 options.

This Giveaway will go on through February 14th at Midnight or sometime shortly after that. I will choose a winner with Random.org. I will be contacting the winner privately...you know, like I said before, in case it is a surprise. You will have 48 hours to answer my email or I will have to choose another winner.

Good luck everyone!

I also want to mention again...we ordered an extra shirt, I paid for this shirt myself and have not receive any compensation for my praises of these fabulous shirts what so ever. All of the promotion I have done for Saving Little Hearts, including asking you to follow them and friend them on Twitter and Facebook is because I think they are an amazing organization and you should know more about them.

Since I did not homeschool my daughter, I really do not know that much about it. I'm looking for a few experts (I already know you are one!) to discuss homeschooling in my new forum BLOGNTWEET at http://BLOGNTWEET.ning.com

I would greatly appreciate your input. The link to the homeschooling page is http://blogntweet.ning.com/group/education/forum/topics/homeschooling-1

If you do this for me, let me THANK YOU ahead of time!

Hi, my name is Laura and I am a first time visitor. I also have a heart "baby" although he is now 12. He was born with VSD/ASD and required open heart surgery too. Not near as serious as your son but I can empathize. He also required a shunt for hydrocephalus, has ADHD and growth hormone deficiency. He still deals with health issues everyday but he has such complete faith in God, it is beautiful. I really enjoyed reading your posts and will visit again soon. Feel free to visit our blog someday too. May God bless you and your family and completely heal your son's heart.
