Read below to learn how you can enter to win it as well as get involved in another great contest from Parents.com and Lever 2000!
Meet Merrek, Emmie & Jason Storm. These are my kids. I ♥ my kids. I love being their mom. I ♥ to LOVE on my kids and I ♥ taking photos and videos of them. (I know, that's a whole lot of love)
That's where this giveaway comes in:
A recent study that shows that parents are showing more affection to their kids than their parents showed them, and dads are especially more affectionate towards their children today than in previous generations.
Lever 2000 did a "Make Every Touch Count" survey which showed that families today are feeling increased stress and anxiety due to the economy, however, 81% of parents who report feeling increased stress also say that the weakened economy has made their family closer. More than four in five dads (84%) surveyed show their kids more physical affection – like hugs – than their parents did with them (vs. 78% of moms). Parents report hugging and kissing their kids, on average, six times a day.
The benefits of touch to the family include: strengthening family bonds (83%); providing comfort (77%) and reassurance (75%); and helping them reduce stress (57%), according to parents surveyed.
On top of our great camera giveaway, Lever 2000 is also inviting families to share photos of their favorite family moments that showcase how their family embraces the power of touch for a chance to win great prizes. You must participate in order to be eligible for our giveaway. It's quick and easy, I promise!
So on top of entering our camera giveaway, you will also be entering to win their giveaway! (The winners get a professional photo shoot and will be featured in a Lever 2000 advertisement, among other prizes.) In addition, each submission helps Lever 2000 support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which provides safe places and positive programs for kids and helps them develop close personal bonds.
How to enter OUR giveaway:
1. For your first entry (required), go to http://www.makeeverytouchcount.com/ and upload a photo. Your photo must feature 2 or more of your family members engaging in a "touching moment". It can be active, fun, positive etc. When you do, save your "Make Every Touch Count" photo page link and share it with us by leave a comment with your first and last name (along with your email address) and the photo link. That's your first entry. I uploaded one as an example. I'll have to add a "good one" later and jack you all with my kids' cuteness. Just kidding. But for examples sake:
Example: Jane Doe (firstname.lastname@example.org)
2. For a second entry leave a new comment telling us your first and last name and one thing you do that makes you a great Mom, Aunt, Grandma, Dad etc. Come on, share it with the world! If you're awesome and you know it clap your hands! (clap, clap!)
Example: Jane Doe: I'm pretty much the best mom ever because I torture my girls with those insanely over sized and yet absolutely adorable flower headbands. They'll thank me some day.
Or, you could just say something like: I'm a great dad because I finally remember all of my kids names instead of assigning them numbers. (I have 5 siblings, I know this happens)
Your choice. I'm flexible. Really.
3. For a third entry, tell us your first and last name and either add our button to your site or become a follower. If you already have, then THANKS! (That can count, too!)
Example: Jane Doe: I'm a follower (optional:because you are totally awesome) OR I added your button.
Entries will be accepted thru June 19th.
The winner of the Flip Ultra will be announced on June 20th, 2009
