‘Tis the season … for giving! Help Babble give back this December by nominating a deserving family to receive our annual holiday giveaway package, which includes over $3,000 worth of gifts for the entire family from Playskool, Mattel, Pottery Barn Kids, and many other companies.
Here’s how to enter: Nominate a family (it can be your own or another) by posting a comment below that explains why you think this family deserves to win. To protect the privacy of nominated families, your nomination cannot disclose their personal information (address, phone number, email address). The deadline for entry is Tuesday, December 18 at 4PM EST. Please note: to enter the giveaway, you can only comment below by signing into Babble, not through the Facebook social plug-in option. You must provide us with a valid email address, as this is how we will contact you if your nomination wins. Any comments entered through Facebook social plug-in are automatically disqualified.
Then, the Babble editors will sift through your nominations and choose the winning family. The winning nominator will be notified via email on Wednesday, December 19. (If the winner does not respond to claim the giveaway within 48 hours, they forfeit their right to the prize and we will choose another nomination.) We’ll be sure to ship out the winning family’s goodies so that all toys and items from the giveaway will be postmarked by Christmas.
To give you a peek at what’s in store for the winning family, here are just some of the awesome prizes in our giveaway package:
