wish for snow... and a $50 gift card from 77kids


I was invited to attend a special blogga-mama breakfast at the brand-spanking new 77kids store at Carousel Center Mall in Syracuse.  And not just because I'm cool, but I'm sure it helped.  Well, maybe a little.  Or something.

Can I have three of these, please? And an extra for little old me?
77kids is reaching out to its friends and customers this Christmas season.  Each customer will be given the opportunity to donate 77 cents (or more!) when they make a purchase, and all of those 77 centses will be given to the local Children's Hospital.  In our case, the lucky place is Upstate Golisano Children's Hospital.

This here?  Was why we were there.
Superty cool signage, no?

this cutesy button
But Pamela! you say, there is no 77kids in my neck of the woods!!!  Never fear, my darlings.  Give this cutesy button a click and you will be magically transported to the land of virtual snowflakes.  In a couple of minutes, and with very minimal work on your part, you can create your very own virtual snowflake.  And when 100,000 of these babies have been virtualized, 77kids will donate $25,000 of their own cool cash to the  Children's Hospitals.  Pretty sweet. Even sweeter?  77kids is giving away one $77 gift card EVERY SINGLE DAY to a very happy snowflake-maker.


And to make it really worth your while, we're giving away a $50 gift card to 77kids.  Oh yes we are.  And no, I haven't started referring to myself as "WE".  Well, here, anyway.


So. The rules, because you know there's just gotta be rules.
MAKE A SNOWFLAKE, LEAVE A COMMENT.


That's the main rule.  But you can do other superty-clicky things, too.  Such as:
- Follow 77kids on Twitter
- Follow me on Twitter and tweet the following:
@pameladayton is giving away a $50 gift card to one lucky reader who helps @77kids donate to charity! Let it snow! #77kids  http://bit.ly/fHO8ar
- Like 77kids on the effbooks
- Like the dayton time  on the effbooks
- Blog about the giveaway and link back to this post
- Create more snowflakes–one additional entry for each snowflake you make!

Be sure to leave a comment for each extra thingy you do.  Comments will be closed at noon on December 6th.  Winner will be drawn out of a hat by a yet-to-be-determined short person, and will have 24 hours from the time I email you to reply and claim your gift card.  

And here's the part where I tell you that this giveaway is a collaboration between 77kids and The Motherhood, and that while I was compensated for my time, my words are, indeed, my own.


Finally, this.
The knitted toys. 
You know how I love The Knitting, right?
