Happy Thanksgiving!

November 28, 2009

Let’s kick our holiday season off right here at the Daily Dose. As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the Daily Dose is going to be hosting a giveaway of some kind everyday between now and December 19, so make sure you stop by regularly. Before we get to the giveaway, let us go over the rules:

1. You comment on the blog in order to be entered into the drawing.
2. You must include whom you want to give the gift too. You do not have to name names or post their email information, just a short blurb about what they mean to you or why it’s important they receive it. You can be a real secret Santa as well.
3. Each drawing will last 24 hours unless otherwise noted. (7 a.m. to 7 a.m. CST)
4. Winners will be notified by email so make sure I have that or access to it via your profile. Upon notification, you let me know whom the gift is going to.
5. You may only win one giveaway, once you win one you cannot enter into anymore.
6. Spread the holiday cheer for everyone celebrating Hannukah, Kwanzaa, Yule, Christmas and more.

Example Entry: I want to nominate a dear friend from my office. She and her husband are always struggling to make ends meet. They never buy anything for themselves, even at the holidays, but they give everything to their kids. I just want to treat her to something special for her.

Pretty simple, huh?

Holiday Giveaways

Today is Black Friday in the United States! So what better way to kick off our holiday giveaway than with a $25 gift certificate to Amazon from author Michele Bardsley. Michele writes the fabulous and fun Broken Heart vampire series. Ever wonder what a soccer mom would be like as a vampire? Michele as an answer for you as she explores the paranormal PTA for the local school.

The author published her first book in 1998, an e-book – and has since published several novels in e-book and print form. In 2003, she won the Grand Prize from the Writer’s Digest Writing Competition, beating out thousands of others with her short story “A Mother Scorned.” The recipient of many awards, Michele’s work engages you with a multitude of emotion that can make you cry even as you laugh aloud.

Let Michele Bardsley be a part of your holiday plans and enter to win this gift for someone you love. Entries close at 7 a.m. Central on Saturday, November 28.

    I would give the book to myself and use the Amazon to buy my brother some food staples, they are really struggling right now. He just got back to work after being unemployed for a bit.

  2. zachsgran says:

    I would give this to my daughter. She and her husband have 3 kids to buy for this Christmas and he just recently was laid off from work. This could take some stress from her

    I would give this to my daughters for Christmas. Living on disability is tight enough, but one daughter is in college and always needs me to help cover expenses, so Christmas could be very light this year.

  7. I would give this to my assistant in the office, Sandi. She is so wonderful and works whatever is needed to make sure everything is done. She is so selfless and she really makes me job so much easier. I would like to show her how much I appreciate her.

    What a GREAT giveaway!!! I would gift my DD because her birthday is in 3 wks and it would make a nice gift. She also loves to shop at Amazon. Thanks, Sue


  9. At any time of the year and in spite of limited resources, my friend, Debbie Hamer, is incredibly kind and helpful to members of her family, friends, animals and members of the community who may be in need. She gives her time and energy and she does it from her heart. It would be especially meaningful for her to receive a book gift certificate because like myself, we're both hooked on reading. nbristow at cox.net

    I would give this to my dad- he does so much for my mom, sister, and me, so this would be a great way to say thanks. Thank you for such a great giveaway! heroesgirl314@gmail.com

  11. Chrissy says:

    I'd give this to my stepmother. We recently found out my father has an aggressive form of prostate cancer and she could really use some joy and a distraction from reality right now.

  12. krams1120 says:

    This is such a neat idea. I think this is great that you are doing it. 🙂

    I would give the gift to my husband who has been working more than full-time job, working on his master's program, and figuring out how to be a dad to our newly adopted five year old girl. And as I expected, he's doing a great job at all three, but he deserves a little fun this holiday season. Though we have a set amount we are allowed to spend, it would be nice to give him above and beyond without hurting our budget. 🙂

  13. I just wanted to thank you all for dropping by and sharing your stories with me. I wish you all and your loved ones the happiest of holidays.

  14. RW1010 says:

    I would give this to my sister, she fell at work & hurt her arm so bad, she won't be able to continue in her chosen career in healthcare. She has been devastated! This would certainly help boost her spirits!

  15. The book for myself, but the Amazon gift cert to my son, since he has been unemployed and been struggling while looking for a job.
