Get One and Give One this holiday season with Graco!

baby-santaIt’s that time of year again! That time when lights are twinkling, snow is falling (in some parts of the country, anyway), and we’re counting our blessings.  This year, we want to show you how much we appreciate you – our readers, fans, friends and extended family, and we want to do something good for those who need it at the same time. 

So, this year for the next twelve days – we’ll be doing something we call Graco’s “Get One, Give One” program.

Here’s how it works:

- Every day, we’ll be featuring a new Graco prize - anything from car seats to monitors to grooming kits – meaning there will be twelve opportunities to Get One and Give One.

- Comment on that day’s blog post and share a story of who you would “Give One” of that prize to and why they really need it this season. It can be an organization you support, a neighbor that is having a tough season, or you can leave it up to us to share it with someone in need.

- We’ll choose one comment at random every day as our winner.

- If you win, we’ll send you that day’s prize (the “Get One!“) Then, we’ll also send that same product to your nominee/organization in your name, or anonymously if you’d like (the “Give One!“)

- Plus, if you spread the word by on Twitter by sharing this tweet: “Do you know someone deserving of baby gear this holiday? Nominate them here and win for you both! #GracoGOGO http://blog.gracobaby.com/2009/12/08/get-one-and-give-one-this-holiday-season-with-graco/,” we’ll give you an extra entry (you must comment on the blog first though).

All you need to do is comment and tweet to win – and to do something good for someone who really needs it. Especially in this tough season, we hope we can help make things a little more Merry and Bright.

Tomorrow we’ll host our very first Graco Get One, Give One! Come back then and comment to win – our first prize will be a Graco imonitor™ mini Baby Monitor.

From all of us at Graco, we hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Void where prohibited. Winners are chosen at random. Your odds of winning vary by the number of entries. Limited to residents of the US only. For a full set of rules, contact us at blog@gracobaby.com.

**Editors Note: Please comment on the post that describes that prize each day (instead of this one.) That way we will know which prize you are entering to win! Thanks!

    YEAH for fun contests. I love when everyone gets into the spirit of the season and what better way then to share something nice and always extremely useful (after all it is a Graco product) with someone/group who may need it much more than ourselves. I always knew Graco was the best! Happy Holidays everyone :)

    What a fantastic idea! I really love that the winner gets to give the prize to a non-profit, neighbor, or friend in addition to winning one of her own. Thanks for being so innovative in the way that you are approaching this promotion.

    P.S. I blogged about this campaign in my Tuesday Tours column yesterday and will tweet about it today.

    I just tweeted it, but I changed the “tiny URL” from your original tweet before I did because your current link took me to a “404 error page.” You might want to change that so that you don’t miss potential entrants.

    Thank you, Graco. All our baby Gear is Graco and we would love to win some more!

    I’d LOVE to have a MyRide! I love graco products and have always had wonderful experiences with the company.

    If I were to win, I would give the other seat to a family that is using an old or outdated car seat. I’d also give them the name of our local SafeKids so that they could be educated in installing and using it properly!

    oh i would love this seat! i would give this seat to my cousin who iam close with. she has an older possibliy outdated carseat. it only has a 3pt harness. i know she wants to to the extended rear facing but her seat only goes up to 30lbs.

    check it out i just tweeted about it! under stiner0305 and i also follow graco on twitter.

    I would give one to my friend Carina who is due a few weeks after me! She is super sweet and she and I are both excited to be having our 1st babies together. We met on a wedding chat board so it is just really cool that we are really starting our married lives similarly. Thank you for considering us for the GOGO giveaway!!! I LOVE THIS CARSEAT!!!!!!

    I love Graco products. They have had everything that we have needed for our son!! Such a wonderful company also!!

    This is a great idea! I would check around to our local CASS program. ( CASS means- Community Agency School Services) Its a program through our local public school system and I’m sure there is a need for this. Or our woman/children shelters. We donate a lot through our church and I know this would be something that would be greatly appreciated. Plus, we are due with baby #2 in January and we will need another car seat when the time comes for her to outgrew her snugfit..and we already have 1 myride and LOVE IT! Thanks!

    I think this is a wonderful idea GRACO has came up with. I know so many people who are in need this christmas and dont have the money to spend. I have a cousin who just had a baby and her husband just lost his job and she of course is not working and to give them this would be the best christmas present ever. Plus, i have a one year old daughter who is still in her snugfit carseat and i at the moment am not working so can not afford to buy her one so this would be just perfect. I LOVE GRACO PRODUCTS YOU GUYS ARE SUCH A WONDERFUL COMPANY. THANKS

    Cool idea! I would use the new carseat for 1 of my sons and would be happy to give the other carseat to my cousin who also owns an in-home daycare like myself and could use an updated carseat. I like the idea of keeping my child in a 5-point harness even longer!!

  15. Monica December 10, 2009 at 2:31 pm #

    I would give one of these to a dear friend of mine who is due in early 2010 because I know money is tight for them, and that they’d really appreciate it. They always give so much to their community that I’d like to give them something nice for their new addition. Times are so tough for everyone that I think it’s really nice of a company like this to sponsor such an amazing prize!

  16. Sally December 10, 2009 at 3:42 pm #

    Yay for Graco! There’s a local foster home that takes newborn babies born addicted to drugs. My friends and I have volunteered there- I would love for them to be selected as the winner!

    I love when companies decide to give back by having the community put in some effort as well.. All too often we find ourselves wanting companies to fork out the money without the knowledge behind the product. It is great that Graco shows they care by forwarding on great information and helping those in need at the same time. Word of mouth is a great education tool!
