Yoplait for Kids Yogurt Giveaway

Did you know research has shown that fewer than half of all kids ages two to 12 get the calcium they need each day? Calcium and Vitamin D are both essential nutrients for building strong bones. Though it can be challenging for growing kids to get Vitamin D, since it is found naturally in very few foods, Yoplait for Kids makes it a little easier to incorporate a delicious source of Vitamin D and Calcium in your child's diet.

Yoplait for Kids helps build strong bones, enabling healthy and active bodies. Perfect for a fun-filled day your active children, the Yoplait Get Active Prize Pack includes a coupon for a free pack of Yoplait Kids, a travel cooler (to take your yogurt on the road), a jump rope, a water bottle and an outdoor game set that includes a beach ball, paddle ball, Jai-Ali and a Frisbee.

*This coupon offer for a free six pack of Yoplait for Kids yogurt is not valid in some states, including Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.

I have three of these great packs to give away! All you have to do is fill out the form. I will take entries until Monday, April 20 at noon CST. At that time I will post the three winners. You will have 48 hours to get back to me with your mailing information or a new winner will be picked.

The Children’s Place has teamed up with the Books for Kids Foundation to host a celebrity charity auction. Celebrities such as Paula Abdul, Chace Crawford, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and David Archuleta have custom designed The Children’s Place messenger bags for a good cause.

Founded to promote literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool-aged children, Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books, and partners with literacy programs to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life. Since its founding in 1986, the Books for Kids Foundation has provided children with more than 5 million books, created 56 libraries and provided literacy programs in many of these locations.

Mobistories Review and Giveaway

Are you planning a long car ride? How about a trip by plane? Maybe a camp out in the backyard? No matter what you are doing if you have kids you want to keep them entertained or you will hear the never ending "Are we there yet?" from them every ten minutes until you arrive.

I am sure by now everyone knows about audio books. Books that you can load to your ipod, play on your cd player or listen to in some other way. So far all the audio books I have seen are geared towards adults...until now. Mobistories are digital books just for kids ages 1-10.

With Mobistories you download digital books to your computer then you can either transfer them to a video ipod or onto DVD. They are yours to keep forever. So when your kids need a little entertainment all you have to do is pull out your viewing device and turn on a Mobistories virtual book for them to read.

One lucky reader will win a $15 coupon to download your own Mobistories. In addition ALL readers will get a 50% discount off any order with coupon code JFG200902C (all numbers after the G). This code is good until May 31st. You can use the code multiple times until then.

You can get a preview of all their books before placing your order. When you are ready to select your books, add them to your shopping cart in the format that you would like to receive (PC, MAC, iPhone, etc.) After you've added all books go to checkout. Since you are a new visitor, you will be asked to register. Go ahead and do that. Once registered, proceed to checkout. At that point it will ask for your coupon code. Then, follow the simple instructions from there to download the books to your computer.

If you are on a PC, remember to click, "Save" and not "Open," because once these files get downloaded to your computer, they are yours forever. They suggest creating a new folder on your desktop called "MobiStories" and save the files to there. This will make them much easier to retrieve anytime you need them.

The drawing for the $15 coupon code will take place on Monday, April 6th at noon CST. Winner will be announced and you will have 48 hours to contact me for the coupon code. If I don't hear back from you a new winner will be picked.
